This is our first look at Jaimie Alexander as Sif in an upcoming episode of Marvel’s Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. She will appear in the 15th episode, and she is part of an effort to help connect the series with more of the Marvel cinematic universe. Producer Joss Whedon had this to say in a statement,
“We always have our radar up for ways to tie our series into the Marvel films and bringing in an Asgardian really cements that connection. Lady Sif comes here on a hunting mission — sent by Odin — to find her arch-enemy Lorelei and bring her back to Asgard. It throws our agents for a loop when they find themselves in a fight right alongside this powerful woman from Thor’s world.”
Technically this episode is after Thor: The Dark World, so does this mean Sif was sent by Loki, who was disguised as Odin? Either way it is sure to be a fun episode. This will be the second Thor crossover, with a Captain America crossover sure to happen as well.
