Cobie Smulders has been cast as the lead in ABC's adaptation of Greg Rucka and Matthew Southworth's creator-owned Oni Press comic book Stumptown, according to Deadline.
Smulders will reportedly play Dex Parios, described by the Hollywood trade as "a strong, assertive, and unapologetically sharp-witted Army veteran working as a P.I. in Portland, OR. With a complicated personal history and only herself to rely on, she solves other people’s messes with a blind eye toward her own."
Smulders is no stranger to comic book roles, having played the character Maria Hill in various appearances throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe, primarily in the Avengers film franchise.
ABC's Stumptown will be written by Jason Richman and Ruben Fleischer. No projected premiere date has been announced.
