For those who’ve seen plenty of Scarlett Johansson running around with the colorful crew of Earth defenders, there’s another lady to throw into the mix: How I Met Your Mother‘s Cobie Smulders as S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria HIll. #2 to Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, Hill should see her fair share of action…or, at the least, she’ll be commanding The Avengers from a nearby high tech base. Either way, it’s nice to see the other gender being represented in this machismo-driven movie.
We caught a glimpse of her in the newest trailer, but take your first look of Smulders in The Avengers – think she can play ball with the rest of the group?
