How I Met Your Mother Actress Lands Role In The Avengers!

how i met your mother actress joins avengers cast

Looks like ANOTHER How I Met Your Mother star will take on the super hero world!

HIMYM's Neil Patrick Harris voiced Spider-Man in the short lived 2003 cartoon series of the same name, and now Cobie Smulders will play S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Maria Hill in The Avengers.

For those of you who are behind on your comic book knowledge, Agent Hill acts as Nick Fury's "second-in-command" in the Marvel Universe…but of course as we all know, she became FIRST-in-command when Fury was MIA "during the 'Civil War' storyline."

WHAT? That's common knowledge, isn't it???

Congrats on the exciting gig, Cobie! Next, we need to get HIMYM's Jason Segel his first super hero role…unless you count I Love You, Man as a super hero movie…

…Is "bro love" a super power???

Has The X-Men: First Class Villain Been Revealed?

x men first class villain may have been revealed

Back in August, we announced some exciting details on the plot of X-Men: First Class!

Now, it looks like the X-Men MAY have their villain!

Here's a hint at the bad guy from a plot summary for the film:

"Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not arch-enemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-Men."

Armageddon could def be the villain, as there have been two characters in the Marvel Universe that have gone by that name. They are…

- An artificially-created offspring of Apocalypse

- Ruler of alien "Troyjan empire"/antagonist for The Hulk

The name Armageddon could, of course, also refer to the Bruce Willis/Ben Affleck movie an event that could potentially end the world…if the X-Men don't stop it.

Hopefully we'll learn more soon. We're just excited to hear updates! We're pumped for this one!

What do U think Armageddon refers to here? Offspring? Alien Emperor? End Of The World? Liv Tyler flick?
