With Thor: Ragnarok not set to hit movie theaters until November 3rd, 2017, it isn’t too surprising that we haven’t heard very much concerning the film. While promoting Ant-Man earlier this month, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige briefly talked about the next Thor installment, stating that there should be a director announcement, as well as a writer announcement, by the end of the summer. He also went on to tease some additional casting announcements before revealing that the film will begin production next summer, around the same time as the still untitled Spider-Man reboot.
Given that Feige teases a possible announcement by the end of summer, and D23 is next month, it seems likely that we’ll hear more about Thor: Ragnarok – as well as the rest of Phase Three – when Marvel Studios takes the stage at the D23 Expo. For fans eager to know more about the third Thor installment now, however, you’ll be glad to know that Lady Sif herself has offered up a few tidbits to the folks over at LA Times.
While promoting her upcoming NBC show Blindspot, Jaimie Alexander who plays Lady Sif in the Thor franchise, teased the next Thor film, as well as what part her character will play, and also briefly talked about her most recent appearance on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..
What’s going to happen with you and your character Sif in the next “Thor” film? We’ve been teasing out a lot of your character’s origins, but we’ve never seen it. Are we going to explore this? And how deep are we going to go?
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 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.
Were you excited to see the stuff [Marvel] put in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” that hints at it? There was a big tease out in that?
Yeah, there’s a lot of great stuff they’ve peppered in through “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “The Avengers,” “Captain” will have some stuff. There’s just all kind of Easter eggs and hints, if you’re really paying attention. They’re so good at interweaving everything throughout those films.
I can’t wait to see Sif in street clothes again. What was it like being in normal clothes but also playing Sif?
It was really difficult because I’m so used to the armor, actually kind of the protection of the armor when I’m fighting. Because if somebody hits me in the stomach or shoulder or the back I don’t feel it because it’s real armor. It was a little weird, I felt very small and kind of thin. Again, when I did that episode of “S.H.I.E.L.D.” I had a week’s notice. It takes me about three months to bulk for Sif. I was like, “Oh no,” and I don’t have my armor to really sell it either. Gonna have to rely on the voice and the wig. It was fun. And it was a really cool space to play up Sif’s vulnerability. Which I think makes her more relatable to everybody.
Alexander can next be seen in NBC’s Blindspot, which will premiere on September 21st, while Thor: Ragnarok is scheduled to hit movie theaters on November 3rd, 2017.
