It looks like Colbie Smulders’ famed Avengers character Maria Hill may be headed two to screens near you: the How I Met Your Mother Actress is confirmed for a role in the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier and rumored to be joining the cast of the currently-in-production TV pilot “S.H.I.E.L.D.”.
Smulders recently commented on her Captain America role and the secrecy behind the hugely-anticipated Marvel films:
“I’ve seen parts of it, but yeah I don’t know much. This is Marvel! They don’t let you know anything. It’s very watermarked scripts, heavily watermarked. Yeah, they don’t let you know like the day of, but they are very secretive and I think they are still figuring stuff out.”
Smulders also commented that she’s been “in talks” to join Joss Whedon’s upcoming “S.H.I.E.L.D.” television show, currently filming its pilot episode:
“The commitments to [How I Met Your Mother] don’t affect it. And I can’t really say but there are definite talks about it. […] Oh yeah! I’m very excited. I will do Maria Hill until they fire me and hire someone else to do it.”
