SECRET INVASION: Cobie Smulders Set To Reprise The Role Of Maria Hill For Disney+ Series
It's been a while since we've seen Cobie Smulders' Maria Hill in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the former S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent is set to return for the upcoming Secret Invasion Disney+ series.
Cobie Smulders has joined the cast of Marvel's Secret Invasion, with Maria Hill set to reteam with long-time friend Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) for the upcoming Disney+ series.
This probably won't come as too much of a surprise, as the former S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent has been a loyal ally of Fury's ever since she made her MCU debut in the first Avengers movie. Since then, Smulders has appeared in the likes of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Avengers: Infinity War, Spider-Man: Far From Home, and more.
Plot details are still under wraps, but we do know that Captain Marvel's Ben Mendelsohn will return as Skrull hero Talos. It's also been confirmed that the show will focus on "an infiltration of Skrulls on Earth" (no big surprises there, either).
One Night In Miami star Kingsley Ben-Adir will play the lead villain. We don't know who that'll be, but Dorrek VII, Emperor of the Skrull Empire, is a strong possibility. The cast will also include Olivia Coleman (The Favorite, Tyrannosaur) and Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones, Solo: A Star Wars Story) in undisclosed roles.
Thomas Bezucha (Let Him Go) and Ali Selim (The Looming Tower) have been tapped to helm the upcoming miniseries, which was written by Kyle Bradstreet (Mr. Robot). Production is now underway.
