Jamie Alexander spoke with the L.A. Times to promote her new show, Blindspot. While the actress mostly promoted the mysteries and tatoos featured in the upcoming NBC show, talk inevitably turned to her popular role as Lady Sif in the Marvel films. Alexander has now portrayed the character in two Thor films and two episodes of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Although the next Thor film won’t strike theaters until 2017, Alexander said other parts of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are already alluding to it:
“There’s a lot of great stuff they’ve peppered in through “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “The Avengers,” “[Captain America: Civil War]” will have some stuff. There’s just all kinds of Easter eggs and hints, if you’re really paying attention. They’re so good at interweaving everything throughout those films.”
The actress admitted that she would likely divulge more information if it was given to her:
“Marvel, I think on purpose, they don’t tell me certain things. Because they know I’ll be like, ‘So here’s what’s gonna happen.’ But I do know that I will be in “Thor 3″ and that Sif will have a very pivotal part in that movie. I just can’t tell you what because I’ll get shot.”
That would definitely be a shame because 1.) people getting shot makes me sad, and 2.) in a world with very few big screen superheroines, Alexander has really owned the role of the Lady Warrior, especially in her S.H.I.E.L.D. appearances, and I’m excited to watch her continue her kick-ass streak in “Ragnarok.”
Are you interested in what Thor: Ragnarok Easter eggs Civil War will reveal? Or do you think it’ll deter from the main story like in those Age of Ultron scenes?
