When Agents of SHIELD rolls around next summer, we now know at least one the agents will be getting some fresh new digs. To help celebrate the renewal for Agents of SHIELD for a seventh season, actor Chloe Bennet took Twitter to share an updated look of her character on the show — Inhuman Daisy Johnson/Quake — for the upcoming season.
In a addition to an updated costume, Bennet's Quake can also be seen sporting a new hairdo, complete with streaks of hair colored purple. Coincidentally enough, Bennet's new live-action look on SHIELD is nearly identical to her counter-part on the Marvel Rising animated series for Disney XD. For the most part, it appears her power-amplifying gauntlets are the same

In the meantime, Coulson's slated to return to the silver in a few months as a part of the 1990s-set Captain Marvel.
According to Gregg, acting in Captain Marvel was a blast. The actor joked with ComicBook.com that he was thankful for recent advancements in technology that would digitally de-age him two decades.
"That was a fun call from my friends in the Cinematic Universe," said Gregg, "who I normally see at these events, saying, ‘You know, we think once again we have some work for you, but it takes place in the '90s. Can you go to the gym?’ Yeah, I said, ‘The '90s? I mean, there is no gym that can get me back to the '90s.’ And they said, ‘Well, don't worry. We've been working on that technology, and we think we can goose you back a few years.’"
