Hill, Maria Hill: Two New Images of Cobie Smulders in 'The Avengers'

Marvel, in its endless beneficence, has issued forth amongst us two new stills from The Avengers.  Marvel has made these images count; they don't feature Iron Man pew-pew-pewing through the concrete jungle of Manhattan, Hulk smashing, or Captain America hurling that vibranium shield through alien craniums.  Instead, both of these new stills showcase an ethereal spectacle more stunning than even the biggest visual effects budget could possibly create.  I refer, of course, to the impossibly lovely Cobie Smulders, who plays SHIELD Agent Maria Hill, the right-hand woman to Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury in The Avengers.

I know, I know, trailers and previous stills have created the impression that Black Widow, played by Scarlett Johansson, is the lone representative of double-X chromosomes in the Marvel team-up, but don't discount Smulders, who any fan of How I Met Your Mother will recognize as Scotch-drinking, hockey-loving Robin Scherbatsky.

Anyways, both images debuted at Marvel.  Naturally.  In a non-Smulders observation, note the schematic of the SHIELD helicarrier on the right panel in that first still below.

Agent Hill was glimpsed oh-so briefly in this week's theatrical trailer, but everyone was probably too distracted by all the superheroics and destruction happening elsewhere in the trailer.  The official one-sheet unveiled even earlier this week was all the weaker for including only trace amounts of Smulders (her name in the credits at the bottom).

Joss Whedon both writes and directs the franchise crossover.  Smulders is but one part of an ensemble cast that includes Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, and Clark Gregg.

Maria Hill will distract from the primary story of The Avengers with her unearthly beauty when the film hits theaters on May 4th.
