Cobie Smulders

The Avengers Gets a New Cast Member

Earlier this week, it was announced that How I Met Your Mother star Cobie Smulders has been cast as S.H.I.E.L.D Agent Maria Hill in The Avengers. Smulders was previously
tapped by director Joss Whedon to star in his unproduced Wonder Woman project. In the film, Agent Hill will be Nick Fury’s second-in-command, much like her comics counterpart. It is reported that Smulders will be signing on for a nine-picture deal with Marvel Studios, just like Nick Fury himself, Samuel L. Jackson.

What do you think of Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill?
