Chloe Bennet is ready for an Initiation.
In this exclusive featurette, the actress opens up about lending her voice-acting talents to a new version of Daisy Johnson, aka Quake, in Marvel Rising: Initiation, a new animated web series from Marvel’s new Marvel Rising initiative.
For Bennet, known for playing Daisy Johnson/Quake on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., not only is it “a dream come true” to play “Daisy Johnson in cartoon form,” but she also explains how honored she is to be part of this web series that features multiple female superheroes.
“It's such an empowering thing for young females to watch,” she explains in the video, below. “I think it's really fun to see a movie filled with so many unique female characters. That's something that I didn't have growing up, and I think that's what resonates so much with people.”
