Cobie Smulders is SHIELD Agent Maria Hill in "The Avengers"

Cobie Smulders is SHIELD Agent Maria Hill in "The Avengers"Submit Comment
We just reported that Morena Baccarin ("V"), Jessica Lucas (Cloverfield), Cobie Smulders ("How I Met Your Mother") and Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs the World) have all auditioned to play Nick Fury's (Samuel L Jackson) sidekick in "The Avengers."

Despite the fact that Baccarin starred in Joss Whedon's "Serenity" and "Firefly," Deadline is reporting that Smulders has emerged as the favorite and that a deal may be in place before the weekend is out. The site added that the sidekick role is actually of S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Maria Hill.

In the comics, Maria Hill was the ruthless interim executive director of S.H.I.E.L.D., who was not above blackmailing and bullying superheros to get her way. She was eventually replaced in the job by Tony Stark (aka Iron Man).

Whedon is very familiar with Smulders. Back when he was developing a "Wonder Woman" film for Warner Bros, he considered the actress to play the title character.

Personally I think she's more fit to portray Wonder Woman. But if the rumor is true, then what the hell..... she smokin' hot anyway.

The Wonder Woman role would have fitted better, but then again she looks hot and will be in the Avengers gangbang.

Bout time. The Avengers was starting to look like a sausage fest. Even tho Black Widow counts about equivalent to like 4 hot chicks, they still needed a few more. Got one, now how bout giving Loki The Enchantress as a sidekick in this one?

Yes bring on Smulders who should after all change her name to Smoulders cause shes hot! Also I vote for Enchantress being brought on also.

At first, I thought they were introducing Suzanne Sommers as Maria Hill, then I thought, " Great, she'll be thighmastering through the whole f*cking movie, all the while jiggling in a one piece black bikini. "
