Marvel keeps adding onto its Agents of SHIELD TV show. After Stan Lee is set to appear in February and Bill Paxton to show up for 4 episodes later in the year, you’d think they’d calm down, but no. Today, they confirmed that Jaimie Alexander would be reprising her role as Sif from Thor and The Dark World in an upcoming episode of the series. The press release did not confirm when the episode will air, but just that we’ll see the Asgardian lady.
This isn’t the first episode that will focus on actual Asgardians hiding on Earth, a la Men In Black kinda alien story. Either way, it was by far one of the best episodes yet, top notch for the series that has been fluctuating in quality. Hopefully they can bring back that excitement and wonder into another Asgardian story. Read on for the press release!
Are you excited for another established Marvel Universe character to appear in the show or do you think she’s not the star power needed?
The Lady Sif is making a trip to Midgard, and her journey will lead her straight to our favorite Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
That’s right, True Believers, Jaimie Alexander will make a special guest appearance as Sif in an upcoming episode of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” reprising her role from Marvel’s “Thor” and “Thor: The Dark World”!
Last seen in “Thor: The Dark World”—now the third largest grossing Marvel Studios film—Sif has come to Earth with a very specific mission. Unfortunately, we can’t tell you just what brings her to our neck of the woods just yet.
Don’t miss “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Tuesdays at 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC, and to catch up with Sif get Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” on Digital 3D and Digital HD February 4, and on 3D Combo Pack, Blu-ray and DVD February 25.
