Actress Chloe Bennet has been working in the acting industry for quite a few years now and has appeared in plenty of television shows and movies during her career, giving us some fantastic performances along the way. However, while Chloe has plenty of credits to her name, it is fair to say that she has become best known for her role in the hit Marvel TV series Agents of SHIELD.
There has been plenty of talk about the lack of diversity in Hollywood over the past few months and years, and Chloe Bennet has now given her views on how the Marvel Cinematic Universe could do their part in improving things. Chloe believes that Agents of SHIELD has done a great job with their diversity of characters and believes the MCU should take a leaf out of their book.
Bennet explained, "I know they want to stay true to their characters but, you know, every female character in Marvel comics also has, like, triple-Z-sized boobs. So if they cast actors based on the way characters look on the page, I don’t think even Scarlett Johansson—well, maybe Scarlett Johansson—would be in the movies."
She added, "I think they could do better. You know, there are a lot of white guys named Chris. But I think they will, because it’s important. It’s the right thing to do. Marvel’s a smart company and I think they will represent their fans from around the world. They can take note from the way we’re going on the show, ’cause we’re doing a pretty good job."
Marvel have definitely been trying to mix things up over the past few years but there are clearly still people who believe that they could do a little bit more. We will just have to wait and see whether they take these ideas on board.
