Maria Hill As Seen In The Promotional Of Falcon & Winter Soldier:
A new promotional image for Marvel’s upcoming Falcon & Winter Soldier features Maria Hill. Released recently, the leaked photo came to surface online on Reddit. As seen in the image, you can clearly see Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes in the image. In addition to his character, you can also see Emily VanCamp’s Sharon Carter in the promotional image. However, what is surprising is that the image also features the character of Maria Hill.
Who Is Maria Hill?
Portrayed by actress Cobie Smulders, Maria Hill is the former Deputy Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. The tough-minded character has also held the title of “Commander” in MCU, in addition to having a well-deserved reputation. Hill is a clear-headed pragmatist who serves as a valuable source of reason, especially during the critical discourse of the Avengers Initiative.
She worked with Nick Fury after he faked his death and was also a part of the assault team which defeated the Helicarriers from Project Insight. Hill subsequently joined Stark Industries after the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D. to help protect herself from prosecution. She also served as an intermediary between the organization and the Avengers during the war on HYDRA.
After the Civil War, Maria Hill was fired from Stark Industries by Tony Stark himself. In 2018, she, along with Fury and fifty percent of the universe, was killed by Thanos’ snap. Five years later, she was resurrected by Bruce Banner using the Infinity Stones. She was also among the people present at Tony Stark’s funeral.
Fan Reaction To Hill Being A Part Of The Promotional:
Soon after the image surfaced online, fans were quick to point out that the image was fake. One Reddit user commented that even though the image looks fake, it is a known fact that SWORD will have a role in WandaVision. Moreover, the show will start off as a sitcom, which will further develop into a supernatural spectacle. Therefore, unless a SWORD is making a quick cameo, it is possible that they might be introduced in the Falcon & Winter Soldier.
Yet, there are others who think that the image is just an unused Sharon Carter concept art. However, including Hill in the show is somewhat believable, mostly because Marvel has done things like this before.
Moreover, there are many others who are of the opinion that Maria Hill is a character that they saw more of in the MCU.
As of now, all we can do is wait to see if the series, which premieres sometime during mid-2020 does actually have Maria Hill or not.
