Secret Invasion Trailer: Daisy Johnson's Absence Has The Internet Screaming

Let's be real for a second. We don't trust the second "Secret Invasion" trailer. Not one bit. On a Skrull-centric show, where some of the core cast are shape-shifting aliens, no one is as they seem. Like, really, is that even Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson)? Have we checked? Does anyone have a slice of non-diagonal toast at hand? We need to be sure about these things else we'll be giving everyone the side-eye for the entire show, including who is or isn't set to be appearing.

We're referring to the long-rumored Daisy Johnson, aka Quake, previously brought to life by Chloe Bennet on "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." and who hasn't been seen since the show ended in 2020. In the comic book story arc of the same name, Quake plays a crucial part in fighting back against the undercover Skrull attack, leading to plenty of speculation that she'd be making a comeback here. However, even though Bennet has denied rumors of her involvement in "Secret Invasion," fans still took to Twitter, picking the recent preview apart like an alien autopsy and not happy with what they saw.

Have fans already found Quake in Secret Invasion or are they just clinging to false hope?

There was a spike in Quake love on Twitter as fans went frame by frame through the "Secret Invasion" trailer, hoping to get a glimpse of the former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and getting nothing back. "THIS LOOKS GREAT AND ALL BUT WHERE'S DAISY??" said @fairqytales. Other fans also expressed their concern over the hero not being seen, with @sarahbelles23 saying, "In the comics Daisy & her team saved Fury during 'Secret Invasion.' It would make zero sense to not include her [on] the show since she's a main character in the comics. SHE HAS TO COME BACK."

While some fans might be disappointed Quake isn't making waves in the trailer, some are still clinging to hope that a few frames tease her appearance after all. In one shot, we can see a woman leaning over a body as a squadron of helicopters fly overhead, leading @CARTERSBISHOP to ask, "DAISY SKYE LOUISE JOHNSON IS THAT YOU?" On close inspection, it looks more like Emilia Clarke, who is set to appear on the show as G'iah, daughter of old Fury friend Talos (Ben Mendelsohn). When there are shape-shifting aliens involved, that could be absolutely anyone. For now, we'll have to wait and see if Quake makes an appearance when "Secret Invasion" hits Disney+ on June 21.
