Your favorite Avengers women: movies vs. real life

Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill

There are many different formidable characters in the Marvel universe, and one of them is none other than Agent Maria Hill, played by well known Cobie Smulders. We first see her in the first ever Avengers film, when she is essentially the deputy of Agent Nick Fury, head of Shield operations. Her role later expands, but for the most part she stays as a workhorse on the Shield squad, helping the Avengers out whenever they can. She even made a brief appearance in the recently released Avengers: Infinity War film.

Cobie Smulders in real life

Some actors and actresses were just born to play certain roles, and Cobie Smulders was definitely put on this earth to play Maria Hill. She has a certain way about her that allows her to embody her characters with such vigor and confidence, up to the point that she has us completely convinced her fictional character is actually one hundred percent real. She gave that same vigor and confidence when she played the role of Robin in How I Met Your Mother, a role that she is perhaps best known for. As far as her romantic life, she is married to well known actor Taran Killam, and let’s just say she’s a bit more committed to him that Barney Stinson.
