Looks Like Chloe Bennet Got In Trouble For Spoiling The Identity Of AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Alien
You may remember a few days ago Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Chloe Bennet (who plays computer hacker and mystery woman Skye) made waves when she seemingly spoiled the identity of the big, blue alien the magical near death cure-all was taken from when Coulson and company swarmed a secret medical facility. The actress dropped the news that the alien was a Kree while chatting on the red carpet at PlayFest, but now she is doing some major backtracking.
Four days ago Fanboy Comics posted their video of the red carpet chat where Bennet was asked what her own personal thoughts were regarding Skye‘s future on the show. While there was some speculation on Bennet‘s part included in her answer, she did seem to drop a bit of insider knowledge as well. She said, as you can see in the video at the 1:23 mark:
I have no idea! I mean I know that the alien was a Kree, as we all know, as they say it. I know that I was injected with serum made from that, and I’m cured. To normal humans, like Coulson who almost died, for me nothing happened. I have been Googling all day long! I snuck into Meltdown yesterday and was like ‘do you have any comic books that have anything to do with Kree?’ I’m trying to find out in every way possible, and they’re like ‘you’re not going to find out.’
That seemed like a confident and bold claim about the alien’s identity, but today Bennet has taken to her Twitter to clarify that her claim was nothing more than her own fan theory. While the actress could well be telling the truth, this smells like nothing more than a backtrack because we now know something we weren’t supposed to know. Actors and actresses get slapped on the hand and have to take a step or two back all the time, so it’s always hard to separate truth from a corporate mandated retraction. What do you think? Is the alien really and truly a Kree or was this just a fan theory from Bennet all along?
Sooo I never "confirmed" that the alien was a Kree I said that's one of my guesses as a FAN! I'm still guessing like all of you!
