Thor's Lady Sif to Return to Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns to our screens next month and news has just arrived that the show will be getting an Asgardian injection before the season is out. Via TV Insider Marvel has confirmed that Thor's Lady Sif will be returning to the show, but unlike her last appearance alongside the agents, it's Sif that needs help. Jaime Alexander's character will appear on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. without her trademark armor and will have no recollection of her abilities or how her Asgardian leader.
"Sif has no idea who Thor is or that she serves a king, and we're going to have fun with that," says executive producer Jeffrey Bell. "It'll give us some much-needed humor in a season that's been full of betrayal and death. Sif can't even recall who she came here from Asgard to stop, but Agent Coulson [Clark Gregg] and his team will try to help her figure all that out."
Sif loses her memory during an epic battle with a Marvel supervillain whose identity is being kept a closely guarded secret by the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. showrunners. Bell says that although Sif's memory is in tatters, she'll still have a big impact on the agent's attempts to unlock the secrets behind the powers they discovered before the show went on mid-season break.
"We've been dealing a lot with space aliens and Inhumans in our last few episodes-things our Earth-bound heroes just don't know much about," Bell says. "They need help understanding what's really going on. Sif's memory-what's left of it-will come in very handy."
The next episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs on Tuesday March 3rd and you can catch the teaser for the Mid-Season premiere below.
