You'll best remember her as Robin Scherbatsky, the resident hottie on hit sitcom 'How I Met Your Mother.' But while we may have always believed she was designated for small-screen greatness, Cobie Smulders had a bigger vision for herself. Now, as part of the incredibly powerful cast that's speckling Hollywood's most awaited movie of the year, Marvel Comics and Joss Whedon's 'The Avengers,' it looks like Smulders is reaching the absolute pinnacle of career-related success.
She plays Maria Hill, the former director of the planetary defense/intelligence service S.H.I.E.L.D which brings together the team of superhumans (read: Iron Man aka Robert Downey Jr., Black Widow aka Scarlett Johannsen, The Hulk aka Mark Ruffalo and Captain America aka Chris Evans, to name a few) who will protect the Earth from deadly villainous characters like Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and his various-membered army.
In the comics, her character is a hard-nosed alpha female who's got it all together--quick, efficient and exceedingly strong. If you take into account Smulders' evidently similar real-life personality, it makes sense that she was the perfect choice for this role. Better still, Marvel's actually signed her for 7 more films in the future as well so you can expect to see a lot more of this brunette beauty even after 'HIMYM' draws to a close. And since the rumor mill is adamant that the show's finale may be upon us sooner rather than later, this piece of career-propping information is as perfectly timed for Cobie as it is for us--her drooling fans!
But perhaps the most amazing part of it all is that in a star-studded bonanza like this, alongside big-wigs like Samuel L. Jackson and all the above-mentioned superstars, Smulders is holding her own and how. In fact, a majority of the media seems to be just as, if not more intrigued, by her presence in the movie than any of the others. Apparently television stardom is a bigger pedestal than we had initially thought!
So for her first major film debut, a wonderful look that never quits, and a solid talent to match it all, we're expecting great things from Cobie 'Robin' Smulders. Thus, we have no qualms in naming her our 'Babe of the Week.'
Here's some more Smulders for your viewing pleasure:
