After her character fell victim to Thanos' snap at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, fans wondered when and if Maria Hill would return. That question, of course, was later answered when set photos for Spider-Man: Far From Home surfaced and showed Maria Hill and Nick Fury alive and well alongside the titular web-slinger. However, the character's return wasn't officially confirmed until recently.
During a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, actor Cobie Smulders, who plays the character, briefly discussed her future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Although she managed to avoid giving any specific spoilers, she did confirm that she will reprise her role in Far From Home.
When Fallon asked if she was going to be in the new Spider-Man film, Smulders had no problem confirming her return, answering with a quick "yes," before stating that the aforementioned leaked set photos revealed her return. Of course, when Fallon pushed for more, Smulders was quick to play coy, saying, "I can't tell you what's happening in it, but yeah."
As to whether or not she's in Avengers: Endgame, Smulders did not answer, only saying that the film was out "so soon." However, the fact that Far From Home takes place after Endgame is pretty definitive proof that most, if not all, of the people killed in Thanos' snap will return.
Whether or not she is in Endgame, fans can finally see Maria Hill's proper return to the big screen with this summer's Far From Home.
Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton, Jake Gyllenhaal, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, Jacob Batalon, Remy Hii and Tony Revolori. It is scheduled to be released on July 5, 2019.
