SDCC '13: First Look At Cobie Smulders As 'Maria Hill' In AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D
The pilot to The Avengers follow-up, Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D has been kept under tight wraps, but now it's been revealed that Cobie Smulders will appear in the pilot and beyond. See Maria Hill's new look and comments from Whedon!
It was just revealed during the Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D panel at San Diego Comic Con that How I Met Your Mother star Cobie Smulders will not only appear in the show's pilot, but also become a recurring guest star on the ABC show. Commenting on the casting, Whedon said "I wanted very much to have Cobie in the pilot because as much as anyone else, she IS SHIELD!". Continuing on Cobie's SHIELD=-centric role, Whedon also commented on her chemistry with star Clark Gregg. "She’s cool and commanding, and has the dry humor that plays so well with Clark’s. Also, if she’s in it I get to hang out with Cobie."
This somewhat comes as no surprise as Cobie's voice could be heard in several Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D promotional trailers talking to Agent Ward. Are you excited to see Cobie reprise her role as Maria Hill consistently?
UPDATE! Thanks to TVGuide, we know a little more about Maria Hill's appearance.
In the pilot, Coulson believes he died briefly, but was revived shortly after. None of The Avengers could know the truth since they don't have the right clearance level. But when he's not around, Maria Hill notes that Coulson can never know the truth about his death, possibly giving credence to our theory about Coulson being a Life Model Decoy. Whedon has previously noted that the mystery behind Coulson's revival will unfold throughout the season, so don't expect an answer soon!
