Cobie Smulders Confirmed For Maria Hill Role

HeatVision confirms that How I Met Your Mother actress Cobie Smulders is in final negatitions to take the role of Maria Hill in Joss Whedon's Avengers. It won't be official until there is an announcement from Marvel Studios but it looks like she's got the part. Whedon had Cobie pegged for Wonder Woman when he was developing the movie so it's not surprising that Smulders was offered a role.

Cobie joins the already rather large cast which includes Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Sam Jackson as Nick Fury, Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Clark Gegg as Agent Coulson, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America, Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye and Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/Hulk.

It's expected there will be a few more additions to the film in the coming weeks. Other possible characters could include Sharon Carter, Carol Danvers (Ms. Marvel), Captain Marvel, Nova, Rick Jones, Janet van Dyne/Wasp and Dr. Hank Pym/Ant-Man.
