Variety confirms that Cobie Smulders is the front runner for the role of S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill in Joss Whedon’s Avengers movie. Smulders is a Whedon favorite (he wanted her for his Wonder Woman movie) and Hill is a perfect Whedon-type character so the handwriting has been on the wall for this.

Smulders, best known for How I Met Your Mother, has been signed for nine films as Hill — spanning a variety of films, she’ll play Nick Fury’s (Samuel L Jackson) sidekick until she “eventually becomes the head of the espionage and law enforcement group.”
Okay then. Avengers ho!

  1. For my tastes, the best thing about a Joss Whedon AVENGERS movie is the idea of Summer Glau as the Wasp. Haven’t heard any rumors to that and, mind you, I don’t mean to start them but you’ve got to admit she’s perfect for it.
