In an IAMROGUE exclusive with Jordan DeSaulnier, on January 26th, 2013; How I Met Your Mother’s Cobie Smulders revealed as much as she could on her upcoming role as Agent Maria Hill in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Series.


Here’s an excerpt of that Cobie Smulders Interview:

2014′s Captain America: The Winter Soldier will reunite much of the supporting cast from last summer’s superhero team up.  Smulders will appear alongside her fellow “The Avengers” actors.

Though she’s eager to play Hill again, Smulders revealed that she has not yet seen a full script for the Captain America sequel, saying, “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 of the measures taken by Marvel Studios to present any screenplay pages from leaking. “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.”

Joss Whedon is set to return as both director and writer for “The Avengers 2″, hitting theaters in the summer of 2014. At the moment, however, Whedon is directing the pilot episode of a S.H.I.E.L.D. television series for ABC. The series features an ensemble cast that includes Clark Gregg, reprising his Marvel role as Agent Phil Coulson.

Since the S.H.I.E.L.D. series is set within the cinematic continuity and Maria Hill is such a indispensable member of the eponymous espionage agency in The Avengers, can we expect her to appear on S.H.I.E.L.D. in some capacity? “The commitments to [How I Met Your Mother] don’t affect it,” Smulders said. “And I can’t really say but there are definite talks about it.”

Regardless of whether or not Maria Hill shows up on S.H.I.E.L.D., Cobie Smulders is now a part of the Marvel Studios continuity, and with the cross-pollination of franchises, Hill may very well be a part of various Marvel features over the next several years. The actress was thrilled by the possibility, saying, “Oh yeah! I’m very excited. I will do Maria Hill until they fire me and hire someone else to do it.”


Joss Whedon’s S.H.I.E.L.D. is in production and features Ming-Na as former soldier Melinda May, Chloe Bennet as  Skye, Elizabeth Henstridge as science expert Gemma Simmons, Iain De Caestecker as tech whiz Leo Fitz and Brett Dalton as Agent Grant.


Captain America: The Winter Soldier will be in theaters April 4th, 2014. Cobie Smulders is also rumored to be reprising her role as Agent Maria Hill in The Avengers 2 which will be released in the summer of 2014.
