Avengers agent Maria Hill will be a part of television’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
There has been a lot of speculation as to whether we would see the Avengers character Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders on upcoming television series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Well, speculate no more. Entertainment Weekly reported that the actress that portrays Agent Hill, Cobie Smulders, will be putting in an appearance on the series.
The even better news, though, is that Smulders will show up in the very first episode of the new series, re-teaming with Clark Gregg’s not-dead Agent Coulson.
Joss Whedon said, “I wanted very much to have Cobie in the pilot because as much as anyone else, she IS S.H.I.E.L.D. 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.”
Smulders is currently starring on How I Met Your Mother on CBS. However, as this is that series final season, who’s not to say that she’ll become a full-time cast member of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will premiere September 24th on ABC.
