Cobie Smulders Talks Reprising ‘Maria Hill’ Role In CAPTAIN AMERICA 2 And Maybe S.H.I.E.L.D.

Revealing a definite possibility for Maria Hill to appear in director Joss Whedon’s S.H.I.E.L.D. series, Cobie Smulders also comments on reprising the role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier!

After portraying the S.H.I.E.L.D. Deputy Director in Marvel’s The Avengers last year, Cobie Smulders is expected to reprise the Maria Hill role in Captain America’s next solo venture, The Winter Soldier. Speaking with I Am Rogue recently, the actress discussed the sequel and, more interestingly, the definite possibility for her to appear in Joss Whedon’s TV adaptation of the Espionage Agency.

About the script for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Smulders reveals, “I’ve seen parts of it, but yeah I don’t know much. This is Marvel! They don’t let you know anything. It’s very watermarked scripts, heavily watermarked,” she explained. “Yeah, they don’t let you know like the day of, but they are very secretive and I think they are still figuring stuff out. I don’t know the exact dates [filming begins]. I know it's some time in March or June.” On whether Maria Hill could appear in Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D. small-screen adaptation, Cobie Smulders declares, “The commitments to [How I Met Your Mother] don’t affect it. And I can’t really say, but there are definite talks about it.” Even if those ‘definite talks’ fall through, the actress says she’s thrilled for the opportunities in the sequels to Captain America and The Avengers and beyond. “Oh yeah! I’m very excited. I will do Maria Hill until they fire me and hire someone else to do it.”

Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” will pick-up where the highly anticipated film “Marvel’s The Avengers” leaves off, as Steve Rogers continues his affiliation with Nick Fury and the peacekeeping organization S.H.I.E.L.D, and struggles to embrace his role in the modern world. Starring Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Frank Grillo, Toby Jones, Cobie Smulders with Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson, and directed by Joe Russo & Anthony Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and is scheduled for release on April 4, 2014. In addition to “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” Marvel Studios will release a slate of films based on other iconic Marvel characters including “Iron Man 3” on May 3, 2013; “Thor: The Dark World ” on November 8, 2013; “Guardians of the Galaxy” on August 1, 2014; “Marvel's The Avengers” sequel (title TBA) on May 1, 2015; and “Ant-Man” on November 6, 2015!

Slow news day
JDUKE25 - 1/26/2013, 7:39 PM
Couldn't care less about her. She was the most annoy character in Avengers.
superotherside - 1/26/2013, 7:57 PM
JDUKE25 Have you read the comics? She's SUPPOSED to be that way! :P

Looking forward to her return! Hoping she makes her character even more annoying! Hope they tease Civil War by her dropping something about registering the heroes.
XavierLehnsherr - 1/26/2013, 8:13 PM
She will reprise in my pants.
jimpinto24 - 1/26/2013, 8:22 PM
I agree. I could care less! I rather have Jeremy Reener come to reprise his role as Clint Barton in CA:TWS instead of Colbie Smudlers.

Hawkeye better be there.

I think she did a decent job in Avengers but it was a very basic Maria Hill, there wasn't a lot to work with, and it's probably better that way because the movie was busy enough as it is.
TheAbomination - 1/26/2013, 8:27 PM
I'm calling it now: they're gonna eventually kill off Nick Fury and she's gonna take over S.H.I.E.L.D.
Knightrider - 1/26/2013, 8:34 PM
Wish they had hired a harder nosed actress for Maria Hill, Smulders was pretty bad, her acting was some of the worst I have seen in a while. That alt. start really showed how bad she was.

Hopefully has a minimal role, which is a shame as Hill is a great character.
Coachella - 1/26/2013, 8:37 PM
I feel like her charachter was the least interesting in the film. Black Widow was way better. So was Hawkeye.
BrotherStarkofMABMindz - 1/26/2013, 8:40 PM
Is Hawkeye the only SHIELD Agent NOT confirmed for Captain America:The Winter Soldier he needs to be in it much more screen time for him. I like Maria Hill I think we'll be seeing her in these movies
-Cap 2 & 3
-The Avengers 2 & 3
-Nick Fury
thorhulk77 - 1/26/2013, 8:40 PM
Cool, I hope she's in the SHIELD show, could broaden the intertwined continuity with the movies.
poop23 - 1/26/2013, 8:42 PM
The only point in her being there was to even out the male female ration in the film a bit. Luckily her looks compensate for her acting.
Herr role was pretty small so I really don't mind her being there
ahhmynuts - 1/26/2013, 8:43 PM
i wouldnt be surprised. or they can do what the did in the cartoons and have him go MIA and maria has to fill in for him.

Ryan Penagos is "Executive Editorial Director for Marvel Digital Media Group and"
He's been posting S.H.I.E.L.D. set photos on his site!
SugarYumYum - 1/26/2013, 8:57 PM
Good god, she is [frick]ing awful. That alt. start/ending was a good idea made freaking painful to watch by her shit acting. Thank god she got so little screen time, hope they keep it that way. I'd personally prefer if she didn't return at all.
thewonderer - 1/26/2013, 9:00 PM
Worst part of The Avengers by far.

Her acting was complete shit, if I hear her do that "DERR" in her voice one more time, Imma lose it.
DrDoom - 1/26/2013, 9:18 PM
I thought Scarlett did much worse than Smulders. Don't see why some people are so worked up about her performance. She wasn't stellar, but she was adequate. Give her time to evolve. That alternate opening was horrendous, though.
Jollem - 1/26/2013, 9:18 PM
smobie culders
Durf - 1/26/2013, 9:24 PM
yeesh people, she wasn't that bad. She wasn't great, but she was ok. I will give people that the alt. opening and ending did suck. Gotta love her enthusiasm and commitment to the role though!
Kjo0212 - 1/26/2013, 9:29 PM
We wanna talk about bad acting we need to revisit Marion cottilard and her terrible death scene.... I thought she wasn't great but not terrible the movie was an overall hit and I'd like to see what she can bring given a chance
Kjo0212 - 1/26/2013, 9:30 PM
I actually liked the alt opening version better than the one they used and she was a bigger factor in the alt
BIGBMH - 1/26/2013, 9:30 PM
"I will do Maria Hill until they fire me and hire someone else"

Funny. I was thinking the same thing.

Shadowmaster35 - 1/26/2013, 9:31 PM
like her as an actor, but hate her character with the white hot intensity of a thousand suns.
Jollem - 1/26/2013, 9:31 PM
puny alien grenade
SageMode - 1/26/2013, 9:44 PM
She was a little too nice as Maria Hill in THE AVENGERS. She needs to the bitchy Maria Hill that we all love to hate, especially how she was during Civil War.
ATrueHero1987 - 1/26/2013, 9:47 PM
Cobie was ok. She wasn't great or horrible. So idk what the hell some of yall are talking about.
sameoldthing - 1/26/2013, 9:51 PM
Wanna see her nekkid.
FirstAvenger - 1/26/2013, 9:56 PM
Hill is an annoying character, so if Smulders bugged you she did great!
BubblesShedAndBreakfast - 1/26/2013, 10:00 PM
I second what sameoldthing said!

I like her.
epitaz - 1/26/2013, 10:17 PM
I like her on How I met Your Mother.....I hated her as Maria Hill. Just didn't buy into her as that character. That short haired chick from Pam Anderson's V.I.P. show would have made a much better choice.
thewonderer - 1/26/2013, 10:32 PM
Wtf at least 5 people criticized her before me and yet 2 people attack me?

What in gods name does Christian bales bat voice have to do with bad acting? It's a disguise, it's meant to sound that way. And I prefer bales voice to something boring like conroys, I like my batman putting effort into his voice and not sounding like a voice actor thank you.

As for Cotillards Talia, besides her death, which I think is humor for immature middle schoolers nonetheless, she is great.

Cotillard captured her father very well, and even got some of Liam neeson in there somehow
epitaz - 1/26/2013, 10:40 PM
How did a story about the Maria Hill character turn into a Batman discussion?
LAXtremest - 1/26/2013, 10:48 PM
Bales Bat voice was by far the worst thing about the Nolan movies. But we're not here for that...
ToTheManInTheColdSweat - 1/26/2013, 10:49 PM
please no, please kill her off. damn near broke my [frick]ing avengers blu ray when the alternate opening came on. what sorta shitty acting was that.
AztecRainGod - 1/26/2013, 11:01 PM
" I will do Maria Hill UNTIL THEY FIRE ME ..."

That might not be too far off, she did a horrible job in the movie.
