Cobie Smulders is as excited as the fans to see Maria Hill on the show Secret Invasion gives Marvelwhich will be released on Disney+.
Secret Invasionwill kick off Phase 5 of the MCU, and stars Samuel L. Jackson like Nick Fury, Ben Mendelsohn as the Skrull named Talos, and Smulders as former deputy director of SHIELD Maria Hill.
In an interview with TV Line, Smulders stated that Secret Invasion will be very different from what has been seen in the MCU so far.
“I’m thrilled. It looks so good, and it’s a very different shade from what I’ve seen [no MCU]. I mean, having Sam in anything is exciting to watch, but I think it really defines his character in a really interesting way that I always wanted to see.”
Maria Hill has appeared in several movies throughout the MCU, but none of them delve into her story. Smulders said Secret Invasion could add weight to her character story.
“It’s the most depth I’ve been able to show from Maria Hill. That’s the beauty of these shows that Marvel is doing, you’re able to really get to know the history of these characters. What are the conversations that go on when they’re just sitting around drinking coffee? It’s not like, ‘We’ve got to catch the bad guys! We have to catch the thing! We have to save the world again!’ It’s like, ‘Let’s just chat, let’s go for a walk.’ We can see those kinds of moments and be a little more intimate with the characters.”
As for the role Secret Invasion plays in setting Phase 5 and then Phase 6 of the MCU in motion, Smulders declined to go into detail. She said: “They’re geniuses at Marvel, so they’re going to create something that I can’t speak or have the ability to understand.”
Secret Invasion adapts a famous arc from Marvel Comics that shows a Skrull invasion on Earth, where the alien race begins to replace several people, including superheroes.
Other confirmed cast members include Kingsley Ben-Adir, Martin Freeman as Everett Ross, Olivia Colman and Emilia Clarke.
Secret Invasion arrives in 2023, and as mentioned, begins Phase 5 of the MCU, and the plot will end in 2025 in Phase 6, with the film Avengers: Secret Wars.
