It has been reported that two of
S.H.I.E.L.D.’s top agents, Nick Fury and Maria Hill are set to reappear before the first season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ends.
Samuel L. Jackson is set to appear as Fury in the season finale, while Cobie Smulders will be back as Maria Hill in the April 29th episode. These episodes take place after Captain America: The Winter Soldier, so be sure to see the film before you watch these episodes.
Maria Hill was featured in the pilot episode earlier in the fall while Nick Fury made an unexpected cameo at the end of the second episode. It appears that ABC has made the wise decision to connect the universes a bit more.
With Smulders no longer appearing on How I Met Your Mother it is rumored that she might do some more guest arcs on this series if it gets picked up for a second season. However, with Maria Hill looking at joining Stark Industries at the end of The Winter Soldier, it’ll be interesting to see how they tie her reappearance in.
