However, despite being part of “Avengers”, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”, “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, as well as guest starring in MARVEL’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” It came as a surprise to fans of Smulders, and of Maria Hill, whom she portrays in the MARVEL Cinematic Universe, that she, along with Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, who both play a huge factor when it comes to S.H.I.E.L.D., are missing from the cast lists. Smulders, however, in a recent interview, talked about her friendship with “Avengers” director Joss Whedon and also talks a little bit about Maria Hill. Read on to learn more about Cobie Smulders’ thought’s on Maria Hill and her future in the MARVEL Cinematic Universe. Read on to learn more about this story.

Die-hard comic book fans may have gotten heart attacks when they discovered that Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, and Smulders’ Maria Hill weren’t present in the official cast list of the upcoming “Captain America: Civil War.” The two S.H.I.E.L.D. agents did play a big role in comic book event “Civil Wars,” which inspired the upcoming film.


Within the earth-shattering comic book event, ex-Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. Nick Fury went underground. He helped the forces of Captain America, and those who were opposed to the Superhuman Registration Act. This meant going against the proponents and enforcers of the Act. It included Tony Stark, or Iron Man, the entire S.H.I.E.L.D., and its new Director, the tough as nails Maria Hill.

However, with things as they stand in the cast listing, it seems as if Fury and Hill will not be making an appearance in an event which their comic book iterations had a big hand in.

In a recent interview with The Daily Beast, Smulders, who was being interviewed regarding her latest independent film, “Unexpected.” Unfortunately, she couldn’t spill any of the beans when asked about Maria Hill’s future in the MARVEL Cinematic Universe, and if Hill would appear in either the upcoming movie, or in the two parter “Avengers: Infinity War.” She appreciated the gesture, and reminded them that she “would get in trouble,” if she spilled the beans on Hill’s future, as the big bosses are famous for being quite secretive with regards to a character’s future in the MARVEL Cinematic Universe.

However, Smulders told The Daily Beast that she was amazed at being part of something big such as the MARVEL Cinematic Universe as one’s job isn’t done with just one or two movies. There are other things, such as video games, in the franchise that one can still be a part of.
