Some would say Cobie Smulder‘s Agent Maria Hill in Marvel’s The Avengers saw too much screen time. Others would say Smulders was smouldering and didn’t get enough. Whatever side of the hill you’re on, one thing is for certain… she will be back for Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Smulders, who appears in the upcoming Disney film Delivery Man along with Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt, said the following to the Calgary Herald:
I think I’m in Avengers 2, but it is very top secret. I hope I’m in Avengers 2. I didn’t get my invitation yet. Well, actually, they know I’m in it but they don’t know to what degree I’m in it.
Smulders later added:
I am really excited to read the script because they are introducing Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch into the Avengers universe and the bad guy is going to be very interesting.
The fact that she is an avid comic reader makes me find her enjoyable, but I could care less about her return as Agent Hill. Personally, I didn’t think she offered anything substantial to The Avengers. My opinion could change, however, depending on her influence in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which is once again a S.H.I.E.L.D. centric story.
