Cobie Smulders may be in line for a part in The Avengers

How I Met Your Mother star Cobie Smulders has reportedly landed a role in The Avengers.

According to Variety, the Canadian actress is wrapping up a deal to appear in the movie, which is being penned and directed by Buffy The Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon.

Cobie is said to be playing Maria Hill, the sidekick of Samuel L Jackson's character Nick Fury in the new film.

The Disney film would mark the first major film outing for the actress, who apparently was once considered for Joss's adaptation of Wonder Woman at Warner Bros.

Robert Downey Jr, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner and Scarlett Johansson are among the other stars in the ensemble.

The Avengers is due for release in the US in May 2012.
