Welcome to Cobie Smulders Fan - your longest running online resource for the talented Canadian actress, Cobie Smulders! Fans may recognize Cobie from films such as Safe Haven and The Delivery Man. Fans of the Marvel universe will know Cobie as Maria Hill from The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Cobie is probably best known as Robin Scherbatsky from the hit CBS comedy, How I Met Your Mother. Online since September 2006, our goal is to bring you all the latest news, media and images regarding Cobie and her career. Thank you for stopping by, we hope you enjoy the site and return often!
You’ve seen Cobie Smulders play a badass government-type in her ongoing role as SHIELD agent Maria Hill in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But in Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Smulders gets to play an action hero in a world without flying men and skyscraper-toppling green giants. “I’m not competing fight-wise with superheroes,” she laughs. “It is so exciting to see these superheroes fight one another. The [human characters] are, like, ‘I’m just gonna make some phone calls.’ So it was really fun to be in a movie where you had to fight for your life at every opportunity. No weapons, no superpowered gear, no SHIELD agency beyond you. You’re on the run.”
In the Jack Reacher sequel, Smulders plays Major Susan Turner, a confirmed military badass with Ranger training. When the film begins, Turner has taken over from Tom Cruise’s Reacher as the head of an internal military investigation unit. Turner and Reacher know and respect each other…and there’s the spark of something more. “These are two people who don’t have much time to date,” says Smulders. “They started a relationship just by being friendly and helping each other out, and that blossomed into more. Reacher decides to seek out Turner, and maybe ask her out.”
Things quickly go awry, as they so often do in Reacher’s world, and the two find themselves on the run from an elaborate conspiracy. “It’s an interesting dynamic between these two characters, who are so used to being alone and being in charge. Now they have to work together. Initially, that goes horribly wrong, and they have to reconfigure themselves.” And then comes a further complication: A teenaged girl, played by Heroes Reborn’s Danika Yarosh, who claims to be Reacher’s daughter. “She becomes a big part of the story,” says Smulders. “So now we’re in this weird family dynamic. My character did not ask to be saddled with this type of responsibility, and so there’s a constant clashing of ideas. At the same time, they’re all being hunted, all being chased.” Eat your heart out, Modern Family!

Disney has confirmed that it will make only one Avengers: Infinity movie rather than the two it had announced previously.
Disney said on Friday that it still plans to release Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War as planned on May 4, 2018. But what was slated to be the second part in that story, Avengers: Infinity War Part II, has now been renamed as an Untitled Avengers project while retaining the May 3, 2019 release date.
The two “Infinity War” movies were announced together in October, 2014, with both directed by Anthony and Joe Russo. Two months ago, the Russo brothers told the Uproxx site that the third and fourth Avengers were being retitled in part to clarify that the films would be two separate films rather than one large film split in half.
Production of “Avengers: Infinity War” is expected to begin later this year. The Russos are directing from a script by the writing team of Christopher Marcus and Stephen McFeely with a back story based on immensely powerful Infinity Gems described in various Marvel stories.
Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner starred in both movies. Downey and Renner have been confirmed to appear in “Infinity Wars.” No word if Cobie will return as Maria Hill. (Source)

Richard Wenk, Marshall Herskovitz and Edward Zwick have adapted Lee Child’s 18th book in his Jack Reacher series, and Zwick directs. Here’s a little about the story from the book’s synopsis.
After an epic and interrupted journey all the way from the snows of South Dakota, Jack Reacher has finally made it to Virginia. His destination: a sturdy stone building a short bus ride from Washington D.C., the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. It was the closest thing to a home he ever had.
Why? He wants to meet the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner. He liked her voice on the phone. But the officer sitting behind Reacher’s old desk isn’t a woman. Why is Susan Turner not there?
What Reacher doesn’t expect is what comes next. He himself is in big trouble, accused of a sixteen-year-old homicide. And he certainly doesn’t expect to hear these words: ‘You’re back in the army, Major. And your ass is mine.’
Will he be sorry he went back? Or – will someone else?
