In Secret Invasion’s premiere episode, which aired on June 21, Agent Maria Hill met a tragic end at the hands of Gravik, the leader of the Skrull rebellion. What made this twist even more surprising was the fact that Gravik had shapeshifted into Nick Fury, Maria’s longtime colleague and friend, thus betraying her trust. When asked about her reaction to the twist, Smulders admitted that she was informed about it right from the beginning.
Marvel Studios co-president Lou D’Esposito personally called her to discuss her involvement in Secret Invasion, and it was during this conversation that she was made aware of Maria Hill’s fate. Smulders found it amusing that she had known about it for years before it was revealed to the audience. It raises questions about the level of secrecy and planning that goes into Marvel’s storytelling, as well as the trust they place in their actors to keep such significant plot points under wraps.
Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have always appreciated the studio’s ability to surprise and engage them with unexpected developments. Secret Invasion, which explores the infiltration of Earth by shape-shifting Skrulls, promises to be no exception. With Cobie Smulders’ revelation about her character’s fate, the stakes have been raised, and the anticipation for the series is at an all-time high.
