After being a part of the MCU for so long, Cobie Smulders is saying goodbye to the franchise that made her Maria Hill. Smulders’ character met her end in the first episode of Secret Invasion. The episode is named Resurrection and at the end of the episode, Maria was dead. This new twist has disappointed many fans. The 41-year-old actress has talked about her journey in the MCU, saying,

“This has been an amazing run. What a dream job. On paper, the credits are great, but … every production I’ve done has been an absolute blast with amazing people. So, I really don’t have anything to complain about.”

No one expected Smulder’s character to be slain in Secret Invasion’s first episode. In the series, Samuel L. Jackson, who plays Nick Fury, will be seen cradling Maria in his arms as she takes her last breath.

Smulders has also talked about how she was surprised by the fact that nothing was leaked on the internet before the episode’s release. The Safe Haven star explained that during the filming of the death scene, there were many people around, which is why it was such a surprise. The Delivery Man actress said,

“It was towards the end. I can’t remember if it was the actual end, but we worked on that whole sequence in that one location. It was shot at this town square just north of London. So, we went through the sequence of events as they played out with explosions and running and chasing, and then we ended with that.”

She further added,


“There were a lot of people around, so I’m surprised that there wasn’t an image that got leaked. I guess that’s the respect that Marvel has earned over the last decade, which is like, ‘Don’t spoil it for people.’ And nobody did, thankfully.”
