Though the primary episode of Marvel’s Secret Invasion collection solely premiered Wednesday, individuals can’t cease speaking about its, um, ultimate moments. Maria Hill, who’s been performed by Cobie Smulders since 2012’s The Avengers, has weighed in on what she thinks occurred. The information has already pervaded a lot of the nerdernet, however simply in case you’re fortunate sufficient to not know…
Maria Hill, right-hand lady to Nick Fury, has died, shot within the intestine by a renegade Skrull masquerading as her pal and mentor. The query that followers have been obsessive about since Secret Invasion’s inaugural episode debuted is whether or not Hill realized it was a Skrull in disguise, or whether or not she believed she had been betrayed. Smulders has her personal reply.
Talking to Vanity Fair, Smulders chooses the happier of the 2 choices. “To have Fury see himself, to know that Hill thinks that Fury shot her—that’s the ache of that second,” Smulders informed the publication. “I wish to suppose that she, by the point she handed, knew it wasn’t him. Initially, it’s terrifying and so complicated. However I’d wish to suppose she bought there.”
Personally, I agree with Smulders’ evaluation, primarily as a result of Maria Hill was a really sensible, succesful one that knew she was actually at that second chasing shape-shifting aliens who needed her useless, and thus had been a a lot, a lot, a lot likelier perpetrator than the actual Nick Fury. Maria Hill ain’t no dummy… er, weren’t no dummy.
This, in fact, begs the query of whether or not Maria Hill is actually useless, provided that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is presently the Marvel Cinematic Multiverse, the place theoretically an infinite variety of Maria Hills could possibly be working round. The character is rumored to star in The Marvels, which can premiere this November. Smulders says, “I don’t know something about that,” as legally obligated by the ominous vow of silence Marvel Studios forces their stars to make. It hardly issues—these are comedian ebook film, nobody ever wants to remain useless if a future story requires it—however there’s a a lot simpler rationalization. Maria Hill did seem in Spider-Man: Far From Residence, solely to be revealed to be Soren the Skrull in disguise, accompanied by Talos as Nick Fury, working as the previous SHIELD director’s brokers whereas he was on trip out in area.
Lifeless or not, Hill/Smulders had a hell of a run. Even should you don’t depend Far From Residence, she was in all 4 Avengers movies, and appeared in Captain America: Civil Battle. Goodbye, Maria and Cobie. You’ll be missed. Possibly. Most likely. Oh, who the hell is aware of—or relatively, who the hell is allowed to say?
