Nick Fury has found his Sidekick!

Cobie Smulders

Today (February 8th) Marvel Studios announced that Cobie Smulders, best

Maria Hill

know for her role in How I met Your Mother, will be playing Nick Fury’s right-hand woman, Maria Hill.

She will play a similar role to Clark Gregg, Agent Coulson. In the Comic series Brian Michael Bendis introduced Maria Hill in New Avengers back in 2005, as a rising star in the organization who eventually went to on to take over the reins as Director. Does this mean that we will see Fury go rouge in The Avengers movie, and Maria take over? Just speculating… But it is highly possible.

This is not her first encounter with Joss Whedon, who chose Cobie to play Wonder Woman in his unreleased movie from 2007.

She will be joining an all-star cast with; Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johnasson and Samuel L Jackson who playing the main characters.
