Cobie Smulders will reprise her role as Maria Hill on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. later this month, TVGuide.com has confirmed. But when Maria returns, she won't exactly be seeing eye-to-eye with her old buddy Coulson (Clark Gregg).
Now that S.H.I.E.L.D. has been disbanded, Maria has begun working for Tony Stark and is open to finding a new way to help the world. Coulson, on the other hand, has a bit more trouble letting go of the organization, even though it hasn't always been truthful with him.

Those who thought Jasper Sitwell running off to Lemurian Star in last week's episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was the ABC series' idea of a crossover with Captain America: The Winter Soldier were sorely mistaken on Tuesday night.

So what the heck was that alien?
When ABC launched Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the series was predicated on the idea that not all heroes are super, meaning fans knew ahead of time that they weren't getting The Avengers on television. But that didn't really work with viewers, who slowly tuned out ...
One day it's a punctured plane, the next a horde of Peruvian rebels blasting AK-47s, the next a mad scientist or a serial killer. There always seems to be danger in the air on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., though that's not the case right now. What's wafting through the show's Los Angeles soundstage is the unmistakable scent of love.
The cast of the ABC action-fantasy series has gathered on the Bus — a high-tech megajet — to shoot a scene that finds the government agents regrouping after a particularly rough mission. Black-ops specialist Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) came damn close to losing his life and was saved by, of all people, meek engineer Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker). Hacker chick...
