It's getting closer to the shooting date of Marvel's 'The Avengers'. Earlier today Variety announced that Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother) will play Maria Hill in the very anticipated movie. Maria Hill is second in command to Nick Fury at S.H.I.E.L.D. (If you read the Civil War series then you know that Hill is not one to be messed with, or crossed.)
'The Avengers' is being directed by geek god Joss Whedon (YES!) and is scheduled for a May 2012 release. You can expect the Marvel panel at Comic-Con this summer to once again be a hot ticket. Here's hoping that they don't schedule a Twilight panel before, or after, the Marvel panel. Otherwise it's gonna get ugly.
What say you?
