Just when I thought the world of surprising news was over and done with, Marvel just have one extra trump card to shock people with and today it’s relating to Marvel’s decent TV show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The following information comes from ComicBookMovie:
“Marvel has revealed that Jaimie Alexander’s Lady Sif will be paying another visit to Midgard for an appearance in an upcoming episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. They’re keeping the exact details of her guest starring role a secret for now (of course) but at the TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour today, ABC president Paul Lee said that she’s expected to show up in episode 15 of the ABC series. Lee also said that the identity of “The Clairvoyant” would be reveled soon, and it’s “going to be very, very cool.””
Well this is just unexpected. Even with the other characters who have been included in the show from Agent Sitwell to the big crazy appearance from Nick Fury, this is probably the biggest unexpected and pleasant surprise in my opinion. Jaimie Alexander’s Sif is one of my favourite aspects of the first Thor film and I’ve always wanted her to have more screen time and while it was never in this context, I am still glad that her character is getting more room to spread her wings. This is the first super-powered person from the MCU to be included in the show and this will definitely be a treat for not only fans of Sif but also people more interested in the films rather than the TV show. As for how she’ll fit into the show, I can assume it’ll obviously tie to Asgard. I think it may have something to do with that Dr. Elliot Randolph (Peter MacNicol) who showed up in episode 8 and maybe he comes back into play and needs help from Sif with another Asgardian item or something of that nature. I just hope that she is used in the show appropriately.
