Cobie Smulders Confirms She’ll Return to Play Maria Hill in THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

     November 8, 2013


Not that there was ever much doubt, but Cobie Smulders says she’ll be returning to play S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Maria Hill in The Avengers: Age of Ultron.  Speaking to the Calgary Hearld, Smulders says:

“I think I’m in Avengers 2, but it is very top secret.  I hope I’m in Avengers 2. I didn’t get my invitation yet. Well, actually, they know I’m in it but they don’t know to what degree I’m in it…I am really excited to read the script because they are introducing Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch into the Avengers universe and the bad guy [Ultron] is going to be very interesting.”

Hill didn’t have much to do in The Avengers, and while we don’t know the size of her role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, I doubt she’ll have much to do in Age of Ultron.  If Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. gets picked up for a second season, she could be a strong addition to the cast (assuming she’d want to do it).

    Thanks, good to know, now lets get Renner back and Hiddleston for a cameo (I wanna see Thanos punish Loki for his failure during the battle of NY)

    I know I was waiting patiently to know that the person playing the annoying pointless character based on the annoying pointless comic character is coming back.

      Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill was amazing. What is wrong with you?

      • Matt Hardwick

        They clearly don’t like decent characters.

    She had a larger part initially, but scenes were cut. The opening of the film centers on her (seemingly) testifying against Nick Fury. And she opposes him a bit more during the movie, only to eventually come to his side. And it comes full circle with her defending him in the testimony in the end.

    I like that SHIELD isn’t perfect and they’re morally grey. There are varying factions in SHIELD that you should trust to varying degrees. I like how they wanted to show that, but I also agree with cutting it once you see the scenes. The film opens much stronger in the final cut.

    I kinda wish the Silver Surfer would make an appearance at some point in the next Avengers movie. He was the best part about Fantastic Four 2.

    Hey she was alright IMO and yeah, ‘eye candy’. I’d like to see her again with more to do. Or at very least in her regulation S.H.I.E.L.D. tight-ass jump suit. And with short hair or hair pulled up, not down like in AoS. I like me some Cobie Smulders!

    She’d be great in the Shield TV show if she was just in an episode here and there as Colsons superior, similar to the Skinner character in X-Files.
