“At least we’re in the dark together.”
This week on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., we pick up right where we left off with last week’s after-credits scene. Lorelei is done with the newlywed groom that she stole from his bride, and is moving on to building her army. Hot on her trail, however, is the lovely Asgardian warrior Lady Sif, who’s come to Earth to bring the seducing sorceress back to their home planet for her crimes across the realms. (more…)
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. (more…)
Agents of SHIELD hasn’t been the breakout hit everyone expected. Failing to continue drawing large audiences after its premiere, the series now turns to guest appearances to bolster its sagging popularity. Bill Paxton will soon guest star in a four episode arc and there’s even a requisite Stan Lee cameo, but it’ll take a goddess to truly make an impact on Agents of SHIELD.
As the Television Critics Association Winter press tour winds down, we get some juicy (in nerd terms) pieces of new information about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Of course, one of the most frequently heard complaints about the show (and there are many) is that S.H.I.E.L.D. doesn’t pay enough lip service to the comic books. Well, it seems like that’s going to change pretty significantly in upcoming episodes. (more…)
If you’re one of the fans that is still hanging on to Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and hoping it will morph into the greatness we all expected, I’ve got some good news for you. It looks like they’ll be throwing in another guest star from the Marvel universe of the big screen. Very soon (once they start airing again), we shall see the wonderful Jaimie Alexander (aka Lady Sif) making an appearance. (more…)
Taking a break from fighting all those Dark Elves, not to mention all those Wonder Woman casting rumors, actress Jaimie Alexander, who plays the Asgardian warrior Lady Sif in the blockbuster Thor: The Dark World, visited a group of ill kids at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Very cute pictures of a Hollywood actress, in costume, posing with some adorable though sadly hospitalized children follows… (more…)
Jaimie Alexander is no stranger to portraying a kick-ass lady in a superhero film or talking about the potential of Wonder Woman appearing in a superhero film. So it comes at no surprise that when MTV caught up with the Thor: The Dark World star they asked about the possibility of her playing Wonder Woman in Batman vs. Superman, as has been incessantly rumored. (more…)
Thor: The Dark World is visually epic and full of battles and world saving shenanigans, but the Asgardian demi-God’s second solo outing lacks the heart and punch of its predecessor. Simply put, you may walk out of this with a smile on your face, but you’re likely to forget why by the time you get to the car.
Superhero movies are often treated as top secret, classified projects. No one involved is ever allowed to even hint about their development, yet, over and over again actors and actresses are caught slipping up and revealing possible, crucial information. Are they simply the worst secret keepers ever or is there some ulterior motives at work? Perhaps they’re meant to slip up such teases in order to test the waters? That could be exactly what’s happened at this weekend’s Comikaze where Thor: The Dark World star, Jaime Alexander admitted she’s been in talks with “both companies” – DC/Warner Bros. and Marvel – about future projects.

Empire has a new spread on Thor: The Dark World featuring some beautiful images from the film. Directed by the talented Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones, Sopranos, Hell, this guy has directed episodes of some of my favorite television series, way to many to name), Thor: The Dark World stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Idris Elba, Rene Russo, Stellan Skarsgard, Kat Dennings, Jaimie Alexander, Ray Stevenson and newcomers Christopher Eccleston (Malekith), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Algrim) and Zachary Levi (Fandral).
The Empire spread, as always, has some interesting quotes about the movie:
“You know, we are killing Asgardians in this movie,” says director Alan Taylor inside. “It turns out immortality isn’t all that it was cracked up to be.”
Explains producer Craig Kyle, “Asgard at the beginning of the first film was at a time of peace. Now our guys have been fighting for over a year, constantly. It’s a time of war.
“When the Bifrost was broken at the end of the first film, Odin had to conjure a lot of dark energy and go through a lot of personal sacrifice to try and get his son back to Earth. And it was a one-shot deal. If Thor didn’t succeed, without the Tesseract he couldn’t have got back again. And in our film, finally the Bifrost has been rebuilt, but during that time, when the cops were largely cut off from the rest of the universe, you had miscreants that came in from outside the Nine Realms, pillaging and destroying and causing havoc. So that’s what our guys have been doing now – trying to put all these fires out across the Nine Realms.”
Sounds like there is trouble in paradise for the Asgardians. This time around there should be plenty of action. My only question about the pictures is, “Who is that rocky headed guy Thor is laughing with or at?”
