Cobie Smulders is returning as Agent Maria Hill in Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur on The Disney Channel, arriving in 2023.
Smulders has played Agent Maria Hill since 2012’s The Avengers. The actor has since reprised the role on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., as well as in 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War, 2019’s Avengers: Endgame, and 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home (though, spoilers, she was a Skrull).

Other guest stars for the forthcoming animated series announced at the panel include Blade actor Wesley Snipes, Jennifer Hudson, Alison Brie, Daveed Diggs, Maya Hawke, Method Man, Indya Moore, and Craig Robinson.
Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, based on Marvel’s hit comic books of the same name, follows the adventures of 13-year-old super-genius Lunella Lafayette and her 10-ton T-Rex, Devil Dinosaur. After Lunella accidentally brings Devil Dinosaur into present-day New York City, the duo works together to protect the city’s Lower East Side from danger. The Disney animated series stars Diamond White as Lunella Lafayette, who is Marvel’s first Black teenage girl superhero, and Fred Tatasciore as Devil Dinosaur.
The series is executive produced by Laurence Fishburne. Produced by Disney Television Animation, the series is executive produced by Fishburne and Helen Sugland’s Cinema Gypsy Productions (ABC’s black-ish and mixed-ish, Freeform’s grown-ish) and Steve Loter (Disney’s Kim Possible).
