Cobie Smulders Says “There Are Definite Talks” for Her to Appear on ABC’s S.H.I.E.L.D. Series

     January 28, 2013


While fans are clamoring for every bit of Avengers 2 news they can get their hands on, writer/director Joss Whedon is currently busy focusing on a different Marvel property: the pilot for ABC’s new S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series.  Whedon is presently directing the pilot for the Marvel offshoot, which he co-wrote and will executive produce.  The show’s cast includes Ming-Na, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker, Brett Dalton, and of course Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson (Coulson Lives!), but it sounds like another familiar face in addition to Gregg might be making an appearance on the show.

Cobie Smulders, who played Agent Maria Hill in The Avengers, recently revealed that—despite her commitment to CBS’ How I Met Your Mother—there are “definite talks” about her popping up on S.H.I.E.L.D.  Hit the jump for more.

cobie-smulders-s-h-i-e-l-dSpeaking with I Am Rogue, Smulders revealed that she might make an appearance on the S.H.I.E.L.D. series:

“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.”

If Smulders’ Agent Maria Hill does show up, I assume it will be in some sort of cameo capacity.  CBS just renewed How I Met Your Mother for one more season, so her commitment to that show as a series regular would make it tough to pull double duty.  That being said, we can still look forward to seeing more of Hill in the upcoming sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier when it hits theaters on April 4, 2014.  The S.H.I.E.L.D. series is expected to debut sometime this fall on ABC.
