Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is dipping into the Asgardian pool once again with Jamie Alexander‘s upcoming appearance as Lady Sif. She’s been sent by Odin to hunt down Lorelei (Elana Satine), the deadly Asgardian seductress who’s up to no good on Earth.
This looks to be a great episode. Satine was fantastic on Starz Mob show Magic City and her two upcoming appearances on S.H.I.E.L.D. (Tahiti & Yes Men) should prove it Marvel fans. The Tahiti appearance is mostly likely just a pop up at the end of the episode, but we should see a lot more of Lorelei in YES Men. Could this small screen role lead to a big screen appearance for Satine as Lorelei in the next Thor movie?
The Tahiti episode airs on March 4th with YES Men the following week on March 11th.
Executive producer Jed Whedon had this comment about the episode:
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.
Executive producer Maurissa Tancharoen had this to say:
Jaimie walked onto the set in full Lady Sif regalia just as she looks in the movies — from the huge, mile-high boots to the metal armor — and she towered over everyone. It was so striking and impressive, all we could do was stare. It was very cool!
These episodes take place after the second Thor Movie Thor: The Dark World. That means when Sif is ordered to track down Lorelei by Odin, it’s really Loki posing as Odin. Could the whole thing be a trap for Sif?
