Cobie Smulders aka Agent Maria Hill Says She May Appear On 'S.H.I.E.L.D.'

She might be contractually obliged to see out at least one more season of “How I Met Your Mother,” but like the rest of the show’s cast, Cobie Smulders looks like she has a career on the big screen to look forward to once we finally find out who Ted Mosby knocked up. Smulders of course showed up in “The Avengers” last year as Maria Hill – a character who has a lot of scope to develop if the comics are anything to go by – and we’re probably going to see a lot more of her as Marvel’s Phase Two kicks into gear.

The Avengers Cobie Smulders

She might be contractually obliged to see out at least one more season of “How I Met Your Mother,” but like the rest of the show’s cast, Cobie Smulders looks like she has a career on the big screen to look forward to once we finally find out who Ted Mosby knocked up. Smulders of course showed up in “The Avengers” last year as Maria Hill – a character who has a lot of scope to develop if the comics are anything to go by – and we’re probably going to see a lot more of her as Marvel’s Phase Two kicks into gear.

Smulders has been talking about the upcoming sequel “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and although it was announced last year that her character will appear, she’s not yet sure of the details. “I’ve seen parts of [the script], but yeah I don’t know much. This is Marvel! They don’t let you know anything. It’s very watermarked scripts, heavily watermarked. 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,” she told I Am Rogue.

That tallies with what we’ve heard about the film so far, with Toby Jones only recently being able to confirm his involvement, and with film’s love interest yet to be cast. In fact, if the script still is in flux, than we wouldn’t be surprised if either Smulders or Black Widow become the love interest in this one, with Peggy Carter being held back until part three.

During the same interview, Smulders was also asked about her potential involvement in the upcoming “S.H.I.E.L.D.” TV series, which Joss Whedon is also shepherding, and it sounds promising, and she won't have to worry about her sitcom gig getting in the way. “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.” We already know that the series will take place post “The Avengers,” and that Clark Gregg’s Agent Coulson will appear, so we’re intrigued with the plans Whedon has for this one. Placing Smulders in it would also seem like a safe bet, and help further integrate the series with the big screen universe, and it’s encouraging that HIMYM doesn’t seem to be holding its talented cast back too much.
