Here Is What Happened to Maria Hill After ‘Avengers: Endgame’

What Happened to Maria Hill After Avengers: Endgame?

Avengers: Endgame marked the end of the Infinity Saga, which left us sad but excited for the future of the Universe. The defeat of Mad Titan Thanos cost Earth a lot, and the loss of Iron Man and Black Widow really struck the fans to their souls. However, one chapter closed, and another opened, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe didn’t stop there. Some superheroes retired from protecting the world, and some of them straight up disappeared. The former Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. Nick Fury and Commander Maria Hill went into hiding after Stark’s funeral. So what happened to her after Avengers: Endgame?

After the Endgame, Maria Hill was established on Earth, which was confirmed in the Secret Invasion trailer. We saw Nick Fury and Maria Hill in Spider-Man: Far From Home, but it was revealed that Talos and Soren impersonated the S.H.I.E.L.D. leaders. While Fury was living on Talos’ Skrull ship, Maria Hill was established on Earth, trying to keep everything under control – and she wasn’t very happy about it.

In the rest of the aritcle, we will discuss this topic more by mentioning what happened to Fury and Hill during the battle against Thanos, what happened after that, and why Hill stayed on Earth while Fury was in space for three years. If you are interested, stay with us until the end.

Maria Hill’s role in Infinity Saga was extremely important

Maria Hill is one of the most important characters in the Infinity Saga of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Nick Fury was the leader and founder of Avengers Protocol, but Maria Hill was Fury’s right hand for many years.

During his tenure as a Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., agent Hill was the Commander and Fury’s right hand, keeping everything in check. In the comics, the agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. was a more power-hungry, strong woman and overall force of nature whose determination and skills kept the secret agency working.

Upon Fury’s removal from the role of Director, Maria Hill was made a new Director. The character is mostly working with Avengers, and her sometimes “shady” happenings behind the scenes could never be proven by anyone. Maria Hill is a very capable agent whose knowledge, determination, and “by the book” attitude made her seem cold among the trainees and younger agents.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe version of the character is similar but isn’t that power-hungry. Hill is still incredibly loyal to Fury, and her steel-like leadership and knowledge of tactics made her the Commander of S.H.I.E.L.D. According to the MCU lore, Hill was responsible for leading high-risk missions within S.H.I.E.L.D. and was the leader and strategist of missions that former Avengers Natasha Romanoff and Clint Barton were part of.


MCU: Why Did Tony Stark Fire Maria Hill? 

Her biggest role was in the first Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier movies, when S.H.I.E.L.D. was at the forefront and focus of the story. When Fury faked his own death for S.H.I.E.L.D. to fall under the HYDRA internal attack, Hill was the only one who knew about the plan. Age of Ultron showed Fury and Hill helping Avengers find Loki’s Spectre and helping them after Scarlet Witch mentally hurt them. At the movie’s end, and during the massive fight against Ultron in Sokovia, Fury, and Hill bring S.H.I.E.L.D. Hellicarrier saves the innocent Sokovians and helps the Avengers against the Ultron army.

The Infinity Saga got more intense with Captain America: Civil War movie when Avengers had an internal conflict that separated them, but Fury and Hill were nowhere to be seen. Only when Captain Marvel Prelude comic book short came out we found out that Fury and Hill were observing the Civil War from afar and started recruiting the Avengers after Thanos’s threat intensified.

Only in Avengers: Infinity War post-credit scene provided us with the context of Fury and Hill disappearing – they were working worldwide to try and take control of the alien invasion. However, that proved in vain since the Snap happened, and Fury and Hill disintegrated with another fifty percent of the universe’s population.

Five years later, Hulk brought the lost population back, including Fury and Hill, who helped the Avengers in the last battle against Thanos. However, after the battle and Endgame, Fury and Hill both disappear, and we don’t find out about their whereabouts until the movie Spider-Man: Far From Home, where Fury and Hill try to solve the mystery behind the violent sandstorm that later proves to be the workings of Quentin Beck, also known as Mysterio.

In the movie’s post-credits scene, it was revealed that Fury and Hill were actually Skrulls Talos and Soren. They impersonated the S.H.I.E.L.D. leaders on the orders of Fury, who was later seen established on Skrull’s ship somewhere in the Universe, trying to figure out the new dangers threatening the Earth.

However, we never found out where Maria Hill was until the Secret Invasion trailer.

Maria Hill’s whereabouts were revealed in the Secret Invasion trailer

The upcoming Disney+ TV series Secret Invasion will finally reveal what Nick Fury was doing during his absence from Earth and where Maria Hill was during the three-year period.

The trailer that came out a few months ago revealed Fury was finally coming back to Earth and talking with upset Maria Hill, who reveals that she tried to reach the former director of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s whereabouts, but he never answered her calls.

It is speculated that Maria Hill was “holding the reigns” on Earth while Fury was in space, but the danger of the Skrull invasion of Earth got to an all-time high, and even the capable Commander started having problems. Fury finally returns to Earth and sees that his home planet has major problems that he and Hill need to solve immediately.

The Secret Invasion storyline is one of the coolest Marvel comic books in the last two decades. Fans hope Marvel Studios will do a great job adapting the notable story.

The trailer reveals a lot and not many things simultaneously, and we will have to wait for the series to be released for us to see what Maria Hill was really doing since the Avengers: Endgame movie. The Commander obviously had a “lot on her plate,” but we must see what her job was on Earth during Fury’s absence.
