Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother) joined the Marvel Universe this past summer, playing the role of S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill in The Avengers.
This, of course, begs the question of whether or not she might pop up in the SHIELD TV series which is currently under production over at ABC (HIMYM is on CBS).
Smulders vaguely answered that question in an interview with the website I Am Rogue.
When asked is she would appear in the new series, Cobie Smulders answered: “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.”
‘Talks’ can mean a lot of things; anything from random internet gossip to actual negotiations. But the main takeaway from the quote is that she could be in the show, if everyone involved was so inclined.
If not in the series, Maria Hill will make her next appearance in 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
