Cobie Smulders revealed what seems to be a pretty big spoiler for her character during a recent interview with Vulture. She states that her character will have superpowers, which is either a mistake or a big departure from the comic book Agent Maria Hill has never had any superpowers.
Below is an excerpt from her interview. Give it a read and let us know your thoughts!
You're also getting into action with Joss Whedon's The Avengers. Before he cast you in that, he said he was considering you for a Wonder Woman project. So he’s clearly a fan. Did he ever tell you why?
No! If he did, I would throw up in my mouth. I mean, the Wonder Woman thing was a very kind comment, I think. I was never in touch with studios about it or anything like that. But we had so much fun shooting [The Avengers]. We had days when it was just us working — and, oh, 200 extras — but, you know, in the inner circle, it was nice to sit by the monitor with him and watch him take on this ginormous project with great ease.
You’re not a superhero in the movie, but you do have sick costumes?
I do. They’re very sleek, and very leather.
And she has superpowers and is hyperintelligent;a very nice, fine woman who has all the answers.
Sounds like this role might turn you into the sexy-brunette-vixen type.
You know, fingers crossed! If I can be seen as somewhat sexual, if only to my fiancé, after having a child and turning 30, I will be happy for us.
What do you make of this news? Is Joss Whedon diverting from the Marvel universe?
