Captain America has another superhero supporter in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War, even if it’s just spiritually. During an interview with Chloe Bennet about the upcoming third season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., she divulged which side her character Daisy Johnson, aka the Inhuman Quake, would be on in the fight. While Captain America would get her support (just like Stan Lee), she had pretty good story reasoning for it.
“I think Cap,” she told ComicBook.com when asked about Daisy’s pick. “Not just because it's Chris Evans, I think it would be Cap because, I mean, that just makes the most sense. Iron Man is not really for her, you know? I think Daisy's behavior up to this point, and where she’s been means she would go with Cap.”
While the idea of accountability certainly falls within Daisy’s purview – she was hacking into S.H.I.E.L.D. for that reason, after all, being put under strict control has never been her thing. After being betrayed by Ward and the Hydra agents within S.H.I.E.L.D., it’s easy to see how oversight from anyone other than those she knows and trusts directly would put Daisy off.
Little is known about how much Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will interact with Civil War, but history shows it could shake up the show considerably. While Age of Ultron only had a passing connection to the show, it did wind up putting Ward in a considerable position of power, thanks to deaths in the film. Captain America: The Winter Soldier, however, had a huge direct connection to the series, completely changing the landscape, revealing a traitor within the team, and transforming the show from a “freak of the week” style series to the weekly inside look at the Marvel Cinematic Universe they originally promised.
Whether Daisy ever publicly announces her support or not, now we know she’s pulling for Cap.
