It’s official: Cobie Smulders is joining ABC’s Joss Whedon superhero drama series Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD.
The Hollywood Reporter has learned that the How I Met Your Mother star has worked out a deal with producer ABC Studios and Marvel Television to reprise her role as Agent Maria Hill from Whedon’s The Avengers film.
Sources tell THR that Smulders is so far set for a one-off cameo role in the pilot because she’s contractually committed to CBS’ How I Met Your Mother, though the actress could return for another similar spot in the future.
On Friday at Comic-Con in San Diego, ABC and Marvel were to screen the pilot for SHIELD during a panel set for Ballroom 20. The pilot was not included in the typical freshman series screeners sent to critics in May in an effort to keep the news under wraps. Whedon is slated to be joined by “surprise guests” during the session. It was unclear if Smulders, who will be at Comic-Con for How I Met Your Mother’s panel on Saturday, will participate in the SHIELD panel.
“I wanted very much to have Cobie in the pilot because as much as anyone else, she IS SHIELD. She’s cool and commanding and has the dry humor that plays so well with Clark’s [Gregg]. Also, if she’s in it, I get to hang out with Cobie,” Whedon said in a statement to THR.
The news comes as Smulders is in production on the ninth and final season of How I Met Your Mother, which hails from producer 20th Century Fox Television.
SHIELD is based on Marvel Comics’ secret intelligence organization that has appeared in countless titles including Iron Man, Captain America and The Ultimates since being introduced in the 1960s. The military law-enforcement agency’s moniker stands for Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division, which also has evolved over time in the comics.
Smulders becomes the second Avengers star to join SHIELD. Gregg became the first to sign on to SHIELD in October when he agreed to reprise his Avengers role as Agent Phil Coulson. The character is a key member of the elite task force in Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor and Disney XD’s Ultimate Spider-Man. The role brings Coulson, who died in Avengers, mysteriously back to life.
Confirmation of Smulders’ role in the pilot comes months after the actress opened the door to participate in Whedon’s first TV series since Dollhouse, telling THR in January that there have been “some talks” about involving Hill in the ABC series.
“Joss Whedon is a genius, and any opportunity that I have to say words that he has written, I will take. … I love Clark and want to be a part of it, but we’ll see,” she said.
The How I Met Your Mother wedding-set final season is, fittingly, turning out to be a family affair. Wayne Brady will return to the CBS comedy in a recurring capacity as Barney’s brother James in Season 9 TVLine has confirmed.
The actor announced his news via Twitter on Monday.

James’ reappearance – he was last seen in a 2011 episode -isn’t a complete surprise, seeing as how the show’s upcoming swan song takes place during the weekend of Barney’s nuptials to Robin. (Source)

Marvel Studios officially announced today that Robert Downey Jr. is returning as Tony Stark/Iron Man in both The Avengers 2 and The Avengers 3. However, the agreement was just a two-picture deal, which means that Iron Man 3 will likely be the last of his stand-alone movies.
The deal falls in line with a story from last month, that revealed the actor was in early talks to come back for The Avengers 2 and The Avengers 3, but had no interest in a potential Iron Man 4. Iron Man 3 was the last movie under Robert Downey Jr.’s Marvel deal. We also reported in April that the actor wants to “retire” as Tony Stark/Iron Man, but he didn’t say when that might happen.
Joss Whedon is writing the screenplay and directing The Avengers 2, which will include the cast from Marvel’s The Avengers, along with characters never before seen in Marvel movies, such as Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. Production is slated to begin in March 2014, so stay tuned for more updates from this Marvel Phase Two ensemble.
The Avengers 2 comes to theaters May 1st, 2015 and stars Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Mark Ruffalo. The film is directed by Joss Whedon.
The Avengers 3 comes to theaters in 2019 and stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson. (Source)
