Cobie Smulders, Canadian actress and star of hit TV show How I Met Your Mother, has been cast in The Avengers. Smulders will be playing Maria Hill, a character with a relatively short history in comic book terms, created by Brian Micheal Bendis just six years ago. A high-ranking SHIELD agent, Hill will presumably be a sidekick of sorts to Samuel L Jackson's Nick Fury, and help out Scarlett Johansson in the representing girls department, filling Whedon's ass-kicking ladies quota.
Any Smulders fans care to weigh in on how she might handle the role of a superspy and the Whedonean banter with SLJ?
