Speaking with David Canfield from Vanity Fair, Cobie Smulders revealed that he was keeping Maria Hill’s death in Secret Invasion a secret for over a year.
Smulders also said that she didn’t know her character was skrull in Spider-Man: Far From Home, but she is “pretty sure” that this is the end of the road for Hill.
“I mean, I didn’t know I was an alien in Spider-Man, there is a multiverse now, so anything is possible. But I’m pretty sure this is it.”Cobie Smulders
The character is also rumored to appear in The Marvels, which releases this November. However, Smulders completely rejects the rumors, saying: “I don’t know anything about that.”
“It felt and it feels strange, Maria Hill’s passing is very real, and it’s shocking, and it feels very human.” She adds, “It was a sad day.”Cobie Smulders
