Cobie Smulders will return to repeat her role as Maria Hill and reunite with Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury in Marvel’s upcoming Disney + series Secret Invasion.
As reported by meeting, Smulders is expected to return to the MCU as the former SHIELD deputy director when Secret Invasion airs in 2022. Smulders will return along with Nick Fury from Samuel L. Jackson, who will star on the show.
Smulders has played Hill on a number of different MCU projects to date. After making her Avengers debut, the actress has repeated the role in other films such as Spider-Man: Far From Home, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and more.
In addition to Jackson and Smulders, a number of other high-profile actors and actresses are said to have joined the ranks of the show. Ben Mendelsohn will return as the Skrull leader, Talos, whose previous appearances include trips to Captain Marvel and Spider-Man: Far From Home. Kingsley Ben-Adir, meanwhile, is said to play one of the series’ main villains.

The cast is also believed to include Emilia Clarke of Game of Thrones and Olivia Colman of The Crown. Hollywood Reporter reports earlier this year also described directors Thomas Bezucha and Ali Selim on board to bring the project to life before its release in 2022. While little was known about the project’s production schedule, Jackson posted on Instagram back in October to let fans know that filming for the show had begun.
In Secret Invasion, Fury and Talos investigate a sect of Skrulls who have infiltrated the highest levels of authority in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. For more information about the show, check out this article, which is a first look at an eyelash-less Nick Fury from the series.
