Deadpool Star Messed Up Her Avengers Audition


Morena Baccarin revealed recently that she auditioned for a role in Joss Whedon’s The Avengers MCU movie and she completely messed it up.

During an interview on The Happy Sad Confused podcast, Deadpool’s Baccarin revealed that she auditioned for the role of Maria Hill in Marvel Studios’ The Avengers movie.

That role eventually went to How I Met Your Mother star Cobie Smulders.

Smulders is about to celebrate her ten-year MCU anniversary with a supporting role in the Disney Plus series Secret Invasion.

Here’s what Baccarin had to say about her audition for Maria Hill in The Avengers:

I didn’t get it at all, I didn’t get it at all. I love that [Joss Whedon] brought me in for it. He kept telling me she was like Sigourney Weaver in Alien, that she had this kind of hard edge to her, and I was like ‘I don’t understand.’ I couldn’t see it on the page, I couldn’t do it. I tested. I was there with Cobie, we tested against each other and I was like, ‘She’s going to get this part, I can see it.’ He wanted me to be emotional but hold it all in and be hard, and I was like, ‘I don’t know what you’re asking me to do. I can’t do it.’

It sounds as though she just really didn’t get the character.

Baccarin went on to star as Vanessa in Deadpool and Deadpool 2.

She also played Dr. Leslie “Lee” Thompkins in the Fox series Gotham and also voiced characters such as Talia Al-Ghul in two animated Batman movies and Gideon in The Flash.
