Even though she has a starring role in How I Met Your Mother on CBS, we may still see Cobie Smulders’ Maria Hill on the Marvel-ABC S.H.I.E.L.D. project at some point if it should actually make it on TV. Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D. is shooting a pilot for possible inclusion on the Fall 2013 schedule as we speak.
“The commitments to [How I Met Your Mother] don’t affect it,” Smulders said in a new interview with IAmRogue.com, when asked about the possibility of suiting up for TV. “And I can’t really say but there are definite talks about it.”
Smulders will, however, be reprising her role as Agent Maria Hill in the Captain America sequel, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. “I’m very excited,” she says enthusiastically. “I will do Maria Hill until they fire me and hire someone else to do it.”
