Cobie Smulders Talks THE AVENGERS, 'Maria Hill' Approach And 'Nick Fury' Relationship

Ultimately discussing her approach to her SHIELD Agent Maria Hill role in The Avengers, her relationship with Nick Fury and potentially Black Widow, check out what Cobie Smulders says!

From the latest issue of SFX Magazine, How I Met Your Mother actress Cobie Smulders discussed her appearance as Agent Maria Hill in Marvel's The Avengers flick. Essentially sharing her initial approach to the role, potential "female bonding" with Black Widow, and relationship with Nick Fury, read on below!

How was it working with Joss Whedon?
It was everything they said it would be. I've wanted to work with Joss for a long time now. I auditioned and then he saw the tape and I was brought in to screen test with him. I somehow convined him to give me the part.

Do you get to bond with Black Widow much?
There's not a lot of female bonding because of the central story. I'd like to think behind the scenes they were really good pals like the guys in the locker room.

What was your approach to creating Maria Hill?
I said to Joss and Marvel,"How would you like this to be done and I will try to do that to the best of my abilities.'" I wanted to bring out the things in her personality in the comic books that I liked, which was similar to what they had envisioned.

What is Maria Hill's relationship with Nick Fury?
Maria Hill has an interesting relationship with Nick at the beginning. She really follows the rules and has a certain mentality when it comes to the way that she gets things done. I don't think she necessarily agrees with Fury so there's a lot of head-butting throughout the film as that relationship changes.

What type of "change" do you think will occur between Maria Hill & Nick Fury's relationship?

Marvel Studios presents in association with Paramount Pictures “Marvel’s The Avengers”--the super hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel super heroes Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins.

Starring Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson, & directed by Joss Whedon from a screenplay by Joss Whedon, “Marvel’s The Avengers” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963 and a comics institution ever since. Prepare yourself for an exciting event movie, packed with action and spectacular special effects, when “Marvel’s The Avengers” assemble on May 4, 2012. The film is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. In addition to "Marvel's The Avengers," Marvel Studios will release a slate of films based on the Marvel characters including "Iron Man 3" on May 3, 2013!; and “Thor 2” on November 15, 2013.

I'd tap it.

And here's to wishing Scarjo agree's with me.

Cool. I for some reason always liked Maria Hill in the comics, she's a good director of a spy agency kinda thing. You don't always agree with her, and you shouldn't but very she's a 3 dimensional character.

Just read Civil War to see what I mean.

Anyway I'm glad she's in this film can't wait to see how she interprets the character.

LAXtremest - 3/8/2012, 2:24 PM
This has to be a run off feud from the article about Wiccan and Hulking sharing an intiment kiss on another thread. Everyone decided to voice their personal beliefs. I hate when shit like that gets started on here. I come here to talk with my fellow fan boys about shit that's not real world. You know, to escape reality?

mgeoff88 - 3/8/2012, 4:56 PM
I think Maria Hill will end up taking over S.H.I.E.L.D. Somehow she'll discredit Nick Fury so she can run the whole show.

Black Widow and Maria Hill bonding behind the scenes? I see the both of them slipping into lingerie and having a pillow fight. ;P
