Cobie Smulders, best known for playing Robin on the CBS hit sitcom How I Met Your Mother, was the top choice to play S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Maria Hill in 2012’s The Avengers.
Smulders and Marvel are now in final negotiations to have the actress play a part in the major superhero movie. In the comics, Hill is one of the highest ranking officers in the secretive organization and has previously taken control as Exectutive Director in Nick Fury’s (Samuel L. Jackson) absence. The character’s most famous storyline is during “Civil War” when she, alongside Tony Stark/Iron Man, attempts to enact the Superhuman Registration Act and locks away any superhero that doesn’t comply.
I love Smulders; she is funny, sensual real and believe will be on hell of an agent! Go Cobie!
