Taika Waititi’s THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER may bring back Jaimie Alexander as Lady Sif of Asgard

Taika Waititi is returning to the director chair for THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER, which is about to begin filming next month. Chris Hemsworth is back as Thor, Natalie Portman is back as Jane Foster (who becomes Thor in this film, likely on a temporary basis), and thanks to the Disney Investor Day announcements, we finally know officially that Christian Bale is playing the villainous Gorr the God Butcher in the movie. But there’s another exciting addition to the cast that may be happening, or rather a very cool return. The lovely and talented Jaimie Alexander is said to be reprising her role of Lady Sif of Asgard in this upcoming sequel. Alexander appeared in the first THOR and THOR: THE DARK WORLD, and has even played the character on Marvel’s AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D., but did not return for THOR: RAGNAROK. In the comic books, Lady Sif is a fan favorite character, and sometimes an affectionate interest for The Mighty Thor. Deadline is reporting on her return, and even mentions she might possibly appear in the LOKI series on Disney+ as well. It would be great to see the beautiful Asgardian warrior back in the mix, especially since The Warriors Three met an unfortunate demise in RAGNAROK. Alexander has spent the past several years on the NBC series BLINDSPOT, in which she played a deadly woman with amnesia, covered in tattoos that held keys to her past. Marvel hasn’t officially commented on Jamie’s return, but that’s not unusual at this point. Expect to see THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER on May 6, 2022.
