Good news everyone! The already awesome-sounding The Avengers: Age of Ultron is apparently going to be even better than anyone anticipated: According to Vulture, Cobie Smulders has confirmed her involvement in the film, meaning that Maria Hill will officially be back come 2015.
Well—she kind of confirmed it, anyway. In a new interview with the Calgary Herald, Smulders explained:
“I think I’m in Avengers 2, but it is very top secret,” said the former model at a Beverly Hills hotel promoting the comedy-drama Delivery Man, which opens Nov. 22.
“I hope I’m in Avengers 2. I didn’t get my invitation yet. Well, actually, they know I’m in it but they don’t know to what degree I’m in it.”
Good enough! Smulders also commented that she's a huge fan of The Avengers—not just because she was in it—and is just as excited as the rest of us see what goes down in the sequel. "I am really excited to read the script because they are introducing Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch into the Avengers universe and the bad guy is going to be very interesting."
As Maria Hill, Smulders will also appear in Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which is set to be released on April 4, 2014. As for The Avengers: Age of Ultron—that'll be released on May 1, 2015.
