Cobie Smulders On The Avengers

Cobie Smulders | Maria HillUPDATE: Variety is now reporting Smulders is confirmed! Cobie Smulders (CBS’s How I Met Your Mother) has appeared as the favorite for the character of SHIELD Agent Maria Hill in the Joss Whedon’s The Avengers and the actor’s contract could be done over the weekend. The audition occurred the day before yesterday and Smudlers was one of six actresses who reportedly had to read alongside Samuel L. Jackson for a Nick Fury’s assistant Maria Hill. Smulders wasn’t new and unfamiliar to Whedon. He appreciated her as a candidate for Wonder Woman when he was working on that superhero film. The character of Maria Hill in the comics was the brutal executive of SHIELD, who was not above bribing and harassment superheroes to get her way. She was eventually stepped into the shoes of Tony Stark aka Iron Man. She’s represented  by UTA and Roar. Marvel Studios starts production in April, which most likely falls into Smulders’ TV gap on the CBS sitcom “How I Met Your Mother.” The Avengers comes along as the counterpart of a superhero All Star game created by a filmmaker beloved by the nerd crowd. Robert Downey Jr performs his Iron Man character, Jeremy Renner is Hawkeye, Scarlett Johansson like Black Widow, Chris Hemsworth presents Thor, Mark Ruffalo is Bruce Banner/The Hulk, and Chris Evans is fabulous Captain America. Tom Hiddleston as Loki and Clark Gregg reprises the role of SHIELD agent Phil Coulson that he acted in the last Iron Man. The Avengers will be released by Disney May 4, 2012. Will Cobie Smulders be skilled to hold her own aligned with Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury or Chris Evans’s Captain America?
