    Default So...Maria Hill in the Avengers Live action movie?

    So is anyone surprised that one of Bendis little pets gets a major upgrade with joining the upcoming Avengers movie ?

    If not what is your reaction to all of this ?

    She'll probably have all of one or two lines and might not even get explicitly named on-screen. So it ain't that big of an "upgrade" and it's pretty pointless to get upset over it anyway. It's no different than Green Lantern supposedly being heavily based on Geoff Johns' "Secret Origin" rather than "Emerald Dawn."

    It's a Whedon movie, so everyone should have expected there would be a young, plucky female POV character.

    I'm sure it has little to do with Bendis. They probably want to introduce a few new characters for a possible SHIELD movie down the road.

    Such as the Wasp. Not Maria Hill.

    Yeah, but then nobody could call a character "X's little pet" so it has to be his fault. (Trying to imagine someone picking up Avengers #4 and going, "Great! Somehow they've put in one of Kirby's little pets!" Not trying too hard, though.)

    I hope they do something good with her.

    I agree - possibly something along the lines of Amadeus Cho's appearance in the Incredible Hulk movie.

    But if she were a moderately used character, I would be happy - I like her.

    I think it makes sense if you have a movie with a BUNCH of super-heroes in it, you need some 'regular' folks to keep things grounded / show the sense of wonder. I realize we already have Agent Coulsen, and to an extent Nick Fury already, but as they peel back the layers to the movie-verse version of SHIELD, they have to introduce more characters - it's not just Coulsen and Fury. So this makes sense to me.

    She's someone for Fury to bitch about the Avengers to. Basically, go watch the cartoon, that's probably the level of depth she's going to get, Fury's secretary.

    Agreed.

    But, was there really any doubt that she wouldn't make an appearance? I thought it was required. haha

    Robin Sparkles has none of the steely gravitas needed from butch-ass Maria Hill.

    Bad casting.

    I was hoping for Morena Baccarin. She's shove a hot stick up someone's rump.

    I'm excited and no, I don't think the role was created out of favouritism for Bendis.

    She's a tad too young though but oh well.

    This is who I thought was a shoe-in, but with her obligations to V maybe could be conflicting. Or, she just simply wasn't tapped for the role.

    or maybe she's up for the Wasp part in the sequel.
