“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…)
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…)
Actually, it’s more like Lady Sif and the Warriors Three fight, but the movie is called THOR: The Dark World after all. In this brief, but active clip, Asgard’s finest warriors seem a bit in over their head till the God of Thunder appears and swings his might hammer. So to viewers from one end of the internet to the other: Llllllllllllllllllllllllllllet’s get ready to rumble!!!!!!!! (more…)
I’m sure we all remember – though I’m also sure we’d like to forget – the doomed Wonder Woman pilot from a couple years ago. It was a huge misstep in what could have been the Amazon’s return to glory and a chance for her to receive equal representation as a member of the DC’s Trinity. But alas, it sucked, and never even aired.
Now, another mythic superheroine is speaking out about what was so horribly wrong with David Kelly’s failed attempt and how she thinks a Wonder Woman TV show should be handled. Listen up producers of the CW’s upcoming Amazon, the Lady Sif, Jaimie Alexander, has some pointers for you,
Let’s talk about this for a second. You have very few female superheroes dominating films these days, unless they’re in a skin tight outfit and their boobs are pushed up to their chin. It’s not okay. All she does is sit and eat ice cream while she’s crying over a boy. I know that never aired, but that’s what the script said.
There needs to be a positive role model. If you’re going to make ‘Wonder Woman,’ make it like ‘The Bourne Supremacy.’ Let’s do something awesome like that. Like ‘Alias.’ That was a fantastic show. Why can’t we do that? Why does she have to be in hot pants and spandex? I get it, it’s visually stunning for half of the people, but at least make her grow a pair!
I would also suggest staying as far away from how Wonder Woman is portrayed in the current run of Justice League. Seriously, Superman needs to teach her how to be a hero?! Suggests she take on a secret identity!?! Ugh. It’s like they don’t even know who she is anymore!
How do you think Wonder Woman should be portrayed, in either film or TV? We know the premise for Amazon is looking for a younger Diana, but what about the Justice League movie?
