Colbie Smothers The Avengers interview slice

At today’s D23 (essentially Disney’s Comic-Con), I got to ask Cobie Smulders s a few questions about The Avengers before the presentation for the fans.  For those that don’t know, Smulders plays S.H.I.E.L.D. executive director Maria Hill in Joss Whedon’s Avengers.   During the interview, Smulders talked about her reaction to getting cast in the film, did she sign a 5 picture deal, a bit on her costume, and she talked about doing a big scene on the Helicarrier with all the superheroes and what that was like. In addition, she talked about How I Met Your Mother and I even got in a Robin Sparkles question.  If you watch HIMYM, you know what that means.  Hit the jump to watch.

Finally, I’m going to be posting a lot more video interviews from D23, so make sure to keep checking back.
