Cobie Smulders

When “How I Met Your Mother” star Cobie Smulders was confirmed as Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) sidekick and S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill for Joss Whedon‘s upcoming adaption of “The Avengers,” it’s safe to say the heart of the Whedon-verse skipped a beat. 

(Smulders, after all, was the first choice for Whedon’s shelved “Wonder Woman” project.)

Zap2it spoke with Smulders during production of the Season 6 finale of “HIMYM,” and what she could reveal about her upcoming role was very costume-centric.

“We start in April, which is like… tomorrow,” Smulders says. “I literally leave here and I go to Albuquerque, New Mexico, to shoot some scenes in a catsuit.”

No, you’ll likely never see her sporting those magical bracelets, but at least she’ll make it to the big screen in some type of skin-tight superhero regalia.*

“I’ve tried on portions of the catsuit,” says Smulders, “[and] I’ve seen conceptual drawings of what they want it to be. It’s fascinating to me. I feel like wardrobe becomes very creative on these types of movies because they literally spend weeks designing just the pants or the emblem. It’s such an all-consuming process, so I’m excited to see how it all turns out.”

Her and several million others.

*Zap2it acknowledges that Maria Hill has no superpowers, but you get the point.
