Joss Whedon has confirmed that Cobie Smulders will reprise the role of Maria Hill in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Smulders is currently set to appear in the pilot of the series and will likely guest star in a few episodes of the show’s first season.
“I wanted very much to have Cobie in the pilot because as much as anyone else, she IS SHIELD,” said Whedon. “She’s cool and commanding, and has the dry humor that plays so well with Clark’s. Also, if she’s in it I get to hang out with Cobie.”
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will premiere Tuesday, September 24 at 8:00 PM EST on ABC.
