“How I Met Your Mother” star Cobie Smulders is off to Mexico to begin filming “The Avengers” in a few days time. Speaking to Zap2It.com, the beautiful actress touched upon the attire she’ll be sporting in the Joss Whedon directed blockbuster.
“We start in April, which is like… tomarrow,” Smulders says. “I literally leave here and I go to Albuqerque, New Mexico, to shoot some scenes in a catsuit. I’ve tried on portions of the catsuit,” says Smulders, “[and] I’ve seen conceptual drawings of what they want it to be. It’s fascinating to me. I feel like wardrobe becomes very creative on these types of movies because they literally spend weeks designing just the pants or the emblem. It’s such an all-consuming process, so I’m excited to see how it all turns out”
Smulders is playing SHIELD Agent Maria Hill in Whedon’s “The Avengers”.
In the comics, Hill was the executive director of SHIELD. She would bully and blackmail any of the company’s contracted Superheroes to get her way. She was eventually dumped from the position and replaced with Tony Stark (Iron Man).
Joe Quesada once said of the character: “[Hill] is such a strong personality, she’s like a force of nature and quite frankly, while perhaps not immediately loved by all involved, she’s certainly as strong and imposing a figure as Nick Fury. Right now I feel that people view her as the outsider but [while] I don’t think she’s any harsher than Fury has ever been, what’s different is that we aren’t quite clear about her motives”
Kari Wuhrer (“Hellraiser : Deader”, “Eight Legged Freaks”) voiced Maria Hill in “The Avengers : Earth’s Mightiest Heroes” cartoon.
“The Avengers” is a big break for Smulders (or ‘Jacoba Francisca Maria “Cobie” Smulders’ as she was named at birth) whose only other previous film credits include bit parts in the likes of “The Slammin’ Salmon”, “The Long Weekend” and “Walking Tall” (as ‘Beautiful Eye Candy in Car’) with The Rock.
