Where Could Sif’s Adventures Take Her?

JAIMIE ALEXANDER

Viewers of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. received a little dose of Marvel movie magic last week with a guest appearance by Lady Sif. The fierce Asgardian, played by Jaimie Alexander, proved the size of the screen doesn’t dictate how much ass she kicks; in fact, Sif got into more brawls in that 40-minute television episode than she did in all of Thor: The Dark World. The cameo made it clear that both Marvel Studios and Alexander are game for taking Sif on more adventures than the Thor franchise may allow. With that in mind, here are five Marvel projects we want to see Sif show up in next.

SIF 001

Marvel One-Shot
Her Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spot demonstrates that Sif has the gravitas of a leading character. Sure, she was playing a supporting role to Coulson and his crew, but Sif shined outside of Thor’s shadow. She commanded scenes, forwarded action, and proved herself to be a capable and multifaceted character. We all knew that was the case before, the “Yes Men” episode just confirmed it. It’s time for Sif to really take over, and a Marvel One-Shot might be the perfect place. The film could focus on some of the doubt Sif showed in “Yes Men” about Odin’s decisions – as well as a lot of face-punching.

Loki
A lot of fans really want a Loki movie. While we’re not sure how that would play out – Loki’s magic has worked best in supporting roles so far – we do think the status quo set up at the end of Thor: The Dark World would be perfect for a Loki project. Asgard is filled with wonderful characters, and Heimdall, the Warriors Three and Sif easily could take on a more proactive role in a Loki film, especially if our heroes suspect that Odin isn’t exactly who he says he is. Jaimie Alexander has even expressed interest in diving into the Lady Loki material from Marvel’s “Dark Reign” era, wherein Loki took over Sif’s form to make mischief. An Asgardian Freaky Friday could be perfect movie material.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2
Sif already took a trip to a galaxy far, far away in Thor: The Dark World’s mid-credits scene. If this summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy succeeds and kicks off a Marvel cosmic craze, we could get a Guardians sequel – and Sif could take part in it. It’s a stretch, but there is a whole cosmic component to Asgard that the films have yet to explore – specifically the fan-favorite Beta Ray Bill. He’s never been a Guardian of the Galaxy, but Marvel could use the sequel to work the horse-faced hammer-wielder into its cinematic Universe. As Sif and Bill have been friendly in the comics, it’s not far-fetched to think that Sif could be by his side.

The Defenders
Alexander has shown herself willing to suit up at a moment’s notice to bring Sif to life again. She did it for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., so why wouldn’t she do it for Marvel’s upcoming Netflix series? While Sif doesn’t really have any ties to Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist or Daredevil in the comics, she could find herself in the Defenders team-up miniseries. If a threat is big enough to bring together those four street-level heroes, it would probably be big enough to warrant some Asgardian attention. Plus, Jessica Jones shouldn’t be the only woman on the team. The Defenders need Sif.

The Avengers
Seriously, just put Sif in an Avengers movie already. The Avengers: Age of Ultron is becoming a bit crowded, what with Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch and The Vision scheduled to appear, but maybe the third Avengers film can make room for Sif. As the threats grow exponentially, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes might need to expand their ranks. After all, what’s the natural progression from joining together a bunch of solo heroes for “Marvel’s Avengers”? It’s mashing up all of the heroes and their supporting casts. If the MCU is headed toward an Infinity Gauntlet-style showdown, it’s feasible we’ll see an Avengers 3 with Sif, Iron Patriot, Falcon, Maria Hill, Agent 13, the Warriors Three and the rest of the MCU supporting players all fighting Thanos across the Nine Realms.

    while Sif was my favorite part of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., that really speaks more to my dislike for any of the other characters than my like for her. she’s doing just fine as she is, I don’t think we need to see her anywhere other than Thor 3

  • thesnappysneezer

    They should just give her her own tv series

  • coalminds

    This show is terrible.

  • David Young

    Thank you! The Lady Sif (and Jaimie Alexander) has enough versatility to fit into any number of scenarios, from a team-up with the Black Widow for an earth-based adventure to rocking the cosmos with the Guardians of the Galaxy. I am definitely up for more of the Lovely Lady Sif in any venue available.

  • Michael Singer

    She get’s NOTHING interesting to do in those movies and barely any screentime. This is despite her being a really big deal in the comics. She is most certainly NOT “doing just fine where she is.” The fact that a freaking SHIELD show gave her more screentime/interesting stuff to do than both Thor movies combined is proof of that.

  • Eno Har

    Would definitely like to see some kind of Warrior’s 3 spinoff mini series. There would be more time to explore the characters if it’s spread out over multiple shows. A solid Game of Thrones style 10 episode’s would also avoid filler eps and stretching out plot lines unnecessarily.

  • demoncat_4

    odds are next time sif appears will proably be the thor third film. though would not mind seeing her on shield again. or indeed in the defenders tv show as if nothing else the leader of the formed team. or better marvel can give her a solo sif film.

  • David Young

    Michael, I have to agree with you. Considering how long she’s been an important part of the Thor comics, she’s been terribly under-utilized in the movies up to this point. But I do see some signs that may change for the next movie. Seeing Sif go through the same doubts about Odin (really Loki) that Coulson’s going through about SHIELD would add a great resonance to the movie; and the fact that Lorelei brought up Sif’s true feelings for Thor (which have really only been hinted at so far in the movies) MAY indicate that’s going to get more play — and if they’re going to continue the Thor francise for more than one or two additional movies, moving Jane Foster out and Sif in makes a lot of sense, for the same reason it did in the comics years ago. How do you manage to keep Jane Foster involved in Thor’s world without her becomming the perennial damsel-in-distress every adventure? But whether it’s in the movies or on TV, I definitely want more Lady Sif in my life! ‘Nuff said!

  • Devil_Dinosaur

    Loki. Sif. Beta Ray Bill. They’re cops.

  • FatherBearNE

    Alexander did a long interview with Nerdist, she’s the real deal, athlete, grounded, big heart, good casting! Fearless Defenders (all women team of Valkyrie) is a more likely scenario. FYI: Beta Ray Bill is an Annihilator (Space Avengers or GoG on roids) alongside Ronan, Silver Surfer (Fox/FF tied-up character), Nova (The Corps are in GoG; rumored), Gladiator (Shi’ar also Fox/Xmen tied-up rights) “Sif and are friendly” like lovers are ‘friendly’. Bill is the only one noble enough to lift Mjolinor, Odin knighted him.

  • Alexander

    Sif is amazing and Jaimie Alexander is beyond gorgeous. I would watch anything with her

  • ComicBook Coby

    yeah actually I just heard her & Chris Hardwick on his podcast, she seems like a really cool person

  • PietroMaximoff

    Sif in the Defenders… sounds a lot like Valkyrie..
