I like how Turtletrekker's careful efforts to prevent careless disclosure of spoilers went up in smoke in the very next post

She's not recurring... yet. But may appear again down the line.

The Newsarama link four posts above said this, by way of the Hollywood Reporter...
Cobie Smulders is reprising her role as S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill in the show's pilot, though it's described at this point as a "one-off cameo role." Smulders is under contract to CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother, which starts its ninth and final season this fall. Yet the article does state that there's a possibility she'll return in a similar capacity in the future.

Articles say lots of things are possible. Doesn't make it news.

How is it a spoiler? Of COURSE she would be appearing, it's not like the actress is a huge movie star that refuses to do TV. I can see her joining SHIELD once HIMYM is over with.

I can't say that I'm a big fan of most of Whedon's work (I'm one of those people who really disliked Firefly, for instance), but I really am looking forward to this show.

It's a spoiler because it's information about future plots or events in the show (the appearance of a character who is not a main character). It wasn't a guarantee that she would appear. I agree it was a minor spoiler, but I wouldn't say "of course" she would appear just because the actress currently doesn't have another job lined up. I'm not even upset by it. I just found it amusing in contrast to the post immediately above yours which said the same information but was careful to use spoiler tags. That's all.

Re: Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D to ABC!

One thing I didn't see touched on in any of the articles above is that there is apparently a bit of a mystery attached to Coulson's resurrection that implies that it might be something more than simply dying and being revived seconds later... even though that's the story the SHIELD doctors tell to Coulson himself.


The mysterious nature of the spoiler above could imply that the early fan speculation about Coulson's survival could actually be correct and that...

I'm really excited for the show. It sounds like it will be great, even if I wasn't already a huge Whedon fan.

Sorry, I misread reprising as recurring.

Re: Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D to ABC!

Well I think Whedon was very smart in casting Smulders as Hill since really HIMYM isn't going to last forever, and how he tends to like to give his friends jobs - I'm pretty sure Maria Hill will be at least a recurring character in Season 2, if not a "regular guest star" just short of being part of the main 'cast'. Sort of like how for ages on like Stargate they would have characters like Bre'tac as 'guest stars' even though they're basically in practically ever episode that season, but they aren't in the main cast crawl at the beginning of the show.

Wait, Ron Glass will be on this show, too? Fantastic! Hopefully it'll be more than one appearance.

One thing: I can't bring myself to believe that Coulson's field team is going to be the only one doing this kind of investigative work. There will be other groups, right?

Re: Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D to ABC!

I imagine there are other SHIELD teams as well as rival agencies. Hydra, perhaps, could make for a good recurring villain. The same with whatever remains of the Ten Rings syndicate and other such enemy groups. I really hope they work out a way to have Mutants at some point, as that is a pretty big part of the Marvel Universe to have to leave out.
