Woohoo! This is exactly the kind of exciting news I was hoping would emerge from the fanatic frenzy of Comic-Con announcements! It has been revealed that Cobie Smulders, who played Agent Maria Hill in the ‘Avengers’ movie, has a large role in the pilot episode of Joss Whedon’s upcoming TV show ‘Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ My love for Canadian actress Smulders has been previously stated, so I am thrilled that she will be reprising her role on the small screen.
Not only will Smulders be stealing scenes in the pilot episode of 'S.H.I.E.L.D.,' she is already slated to appear in multiple episodes of the first season in a recurring guest role. Some very lucky people at Comic-Con today were treated to a screening of the entire pilot episode, which apparently included some very cool fight scenes, unexpected cameos and the reveal of a “Big Bad.”
Smulders still has one more season of ‘How I Met Your Mother’ to work on before her schedule opens up and so there is a chance that she could have an even bigger role in season two of ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ should the series perform well with audiences. If the reception the pilot episode received at Comic-Con is any indication, Joss Whedon has struck gold with his new show and we can all look forward to a highly successful new television addiction.
Are you as happy as I am to hear that Smulders is officially on board will ‘Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?'
