5 New 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Clips: Cobie Smulders Makes a Cameo, Black Widow Gets a Shout-Out (Video)

Iron Man and the Hulk also make appearance on video monitors in the background in a new clip from the ABC's new superhero drama

Cobie Smulders, the “How I Met Your Mother” star who also played agent Maria Hill in “The Avengers,” makes a cameo in one of five new clips from ABC's “Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” And Clark Gregg — otherwise known as S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Phil Coulson — gives the Black Widow, the Avenger played by Scarlett Johansson, a shout-out in the same scene.

The clip features Gregg assigning Brett Dalton, who plays agent Grant Ward, to a new team responsible for investigating the new, the strange, and the unknown across the globe in order to protect the ordinary from the extraordinary. Ward isn't thrilled to be part of “a welcoming committee,” which is what he interprets the special team to be.

“I know it's not what you want. Agent Hill did a very detailed assessment of your last three missions. Combat? Top grades Espionage? She gave you the highest marks since Romanov,” Gregg says. “Under people skills she drew a — I think it's a little poop with knives sticking out of it. That's bad, right? And given your family history, I'm surprised it's not worse.”

If you look really closely, images of Iron Man and the Hulk pop on the screens in the background in the same scene. But that's not all. Meet the rest of the team Joss Whedon assembled for the new series debuting on Sept. 24 in four more clips, as well.

Start with Smulders’ cameo, below:

  • Jay

    Seems very very Campy…No Thanks

  • Jeff G

    i just don't understand that they killed him in the avengers movie then spin him off into his own TV show. why make it a big plot point in the movie knowing that this show was obviously planned at the same time?

    • Brian

      To show Nick Fury is a master manipulator. This is why super heroes don't trust him too much in Marvel Universe. Plus everyone who dies in Marvel Universe comes back eventually… even Uncle Ben shows up now and then.

      • Jeff G

        seems like its worth checking out, whether or not television marvel and movie marvel are as good, well…

    • Loggan44

      Who knows? Ill check it out. Might be good. Not sure how they'll pull it off without the superhero element.

      • Jeff G

        they're gonna have to have some superhero cameos from time to time or it'll never last.

  • Jason Welzin

    I'm so looking forward to this
