Lady Sif played a pivotal role in Thor and also featured heavily in the sequel Thor: The Dark World. She did not appear in Thor: Ragnarok and is not slated to appear in the fourth movie of the franchise Thor: Love and Thunder. Actress Jaimie Alexander has given some hope that we may yet see more of the character in the future.
This week saw Alexander post an image to her Instagram account of her aboard a plane bound for Atlanta.
The image has fans theorising over what this post may represent. There are several major projects under development by Marvel in Atlanta. The most likely option here would be the Disney+ series Loki. Loki still has several weeks left of filming before principal photography wraps up.
Before the project was delayed back in March due to the coronavirus pandemic, Alexander had been asked by fans, what she had lined up. Her response was:
Yes, once upon a time I was able to do that and I might have to do that again in the future so hopefully, I haven’t lost that gift. What am I working on now? I do wish I could tell you, but I would probably cease to exist, don’t you think, if I actually told what I have coming up, so I can’t tell you guys but thanks for asking anyway!
Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige, also hasn’t shut the door on a return for Lady Sif. When previously questioned about the absence of Lady Sif in Thor: Ragnarok Feige had the following to say:
What has Loki been doing on that throne in the guise of Odin? And we always liked the idea that he was doing a good job! He was doing a good, but a shortsighted job. The trains were running on time, but he wasn’t paying attention to anything else going on in the universe or in the realms. … So that was always one idea. And the idea that he would have to get rid of Heimdall because Heimdall can see everything. That was an idea – and probably the Warriors Three, to discount them… which is probably an answer to a question I’ve been asked a few times today: Sif was probably banished. She’s off somewhere.
While we eagerly await a release date for Loki, why not check out our list of characters we want to see in their own movie/show, including the Lady Sif.
