EXCLUSIVE: Cobie Smulders is set to reunite with Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury on Marvel’s Secret Invasion, reprising her role of Maria Hill. The series will premiere on Disney+ and also stars Ben Mendelsohn, reprising his role as Skrull Talos, Olivia Colman, Emilia Clarke, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Christopher McDonald and Killian Scott.
The crossover comic event series showcases a faction of shape-shifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years. Details about the role are being kept under wraps, but I hear it is a newly created character that could cross over to the larger MCU, including appearing in movies and other Disney+ limited series. A rep for Marvel declined comment.
Smulders has reprised the role in several Marvel pics including Spider-Man: Far From Home, Captain America: Civil War and every Avengers pic. She recently received strong reviews for her portrayal of Ann Coulter in American Crime Story: Impeachment.
She is repped by UTA and Gang, Tyre, Ramer, Brown & Passman.
