Another returning face in Secret Invasion is Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill. The How I Met Your Mother actress made her MCU debut in 2012’s The Avengers as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who helps Fury activate the Avengers Initiative, summoning the likes of Bruce Banner, Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, Natasha Romanoff, Thor and Clint Barton to retrieve the Tesseract from Loki, Thor’s brother. Maria continued to play an integral role in films such as “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, as well as in three episodes of the series “Agents of SHIELD”
Like Fury, Secret Invasion will be the first time MCU viewers have been able to spend extended time with Agent Hill. It’s long overdue since little is known about Background or character of Maria Hill in the MCU, other than that, she is Fury’s staunch, pragmatic ally. Hill didn’t even get a chance to showcase her fighting skills, which in the comics make her look more like a Black Widow.
Smulders promised the same amount from the series. During an appearance at Comic-Con in 2022, she teased that Secret Invasion will be a darker thriller than Marvel fans are used to. In addition, she said, the show will need more time to explore some of its main characters, which likely include Maria Hill, although the question of who is a Skrull and who is not will remain up in the air.
