According to Deadline, Cobie Smulders -- who was a top pick for 'Wonder Woman' when Joss Whedon was in charge of that movie -- is the current frontrunner to play S.H.I.E.L.D agent Maria Hill in 'The Avengers,' which is the mysterious female role that Samuel L. Jackson alluded to earlier this week while on the Jimmy Fallon show. Hill is a tough, aggressive, no-nonsense former director of S.H.I.E.L.D., and if her storyline follows that of the one in the animated series 'The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes,' Hill will be "a central member of S.H.I.E.L.D. and a protege of Nick Fury serving as his second-in-command and being explicitly taken for tasks."
