An Agents of SHIELD veteran is headed to Disney Plus’ Secret Invasion: Cobie Smulders returns as Maria Hill in Secret Invasion.
However, this is the real Maria Hill.
Smulders played Hill on Agents of SHIELD.
Although not part of the regular cast, Smulders appeared a few times on the series.
Nevertheless, Agents of SHIELD wasn’t part of MCU canon.
Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige took over their TV division in October 2019.
Afterwards, he disconnected them from the MCU.
That included Agents of SHIELD.
Thus, Hill is not the same character who debuted in 2012’s The Avengers.
That was a variant from the multiverse.
Moreover, she’s not the same Hill from Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Agents Of SHIELD’s Cobie Smulders Joins Disney Plus’ Secret Invasion
After all, that was the Skrull Soren impersonating her.
In addition, Smulders voiced Hill in the Disney Plus animated series What If…? That was the humorous episode “What If…Thor Were an Only Child?”
Secret Invasion truly brings her back.
Samuel L. Jackson was the first to be cast in Secret Invasion.
He stars once again as Nick Fury.
Smulders’ participation is a nice surprise but also expected. Jackson’s Fury and Smulders’ Hill have been partners in S.H.I.E.L.D. since The Avengers.
The question is where has Hill been spending her time since Avengers: Endgame?
Secret Invasion has an incredible cast that includes Ben Mendelsohn as Talos and Emilia Clarke.
Thanks to Feige’s secrecy, we have no word who Clarke is.
Secret Invasion was a crossover event in Marvel Comics.
It was written by Brian Michael Bendis and illustrated by the Philippines’ Leinil Francis Yu.
The 2008 series had eight issues.
It focused on shape-shifting Skrulls invading Earth.
Secret Invasion started filming on September 1, 2021.
In fact, it is still currently shooting.
Disney Plus releases Secret Invasion in 2022.
After Smulders’ announcement, fans wonder what other Agents of SHIELD actors are next.
Bennet left Powerpuff Girls due to “scheduling conflicts.”
That was before Secret Invasion hit the cameras.
So is Bennet in this?
Indeed, who do you trust?
