Cobie Smulders recently sat down with Entertainment Weekly to discuss her latest film.
The Canadian actress was eventually asked about reprising her Captain America: The Winter Soldier role as Maria Hill in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
“There’s so many pieces to this giant puzzle, and I’m happy that Maria Hill is one of them,” she said of her character.
“She’s working for Tony Stark, yes, but they shot so many locations all over the world and this team is out doing all sorts of things. So I like to think that Maria is at headquarters, trying to keep everything running as smoothly as possible. And working for Tony Stark is a whole other ballgame. She doesn’t have S.H.I.E.L.D. personnel to back her up at her disposal, so it’s an entirely different vibe for her.”
Despite the many new and old characters being featured prominently in Age of Ultron, Cobie implies Maria Hill won't be sidelined.
“I see Maria as having more of a female presence in this world, and it’s really exciting to have Scarlet Witch come in, and to see the Black Widow have these amazing moments, and see more women on film with all these dudes. It’s great,” she said.
Anyhow, Smulders is rumored to play the character for the fourth time on the big-screen in 2016's Captain America: Civil War, but it was never addressed in the interview. What do you think?
The Avengers return in Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1, 2015.
