Since the show’s premier back in September, one of the biggest topics discussed by Marvel fans is which characters from the Cinematic Universe would appear on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?
Marvel officially announced that Jaimie Alexander will guest star in an upcoming episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. She will reprise her role as The Lady Sif from Thor and Thor: The Dark World.
Marvel is keeping the exact plot under wraps for now, though they’ve revealed that Sif will come to Earth with a “very specific mission”. However, that’s just about all they’ve said so far, but expect to hear things in the coming weeks as the episode draws nearer.
Alexander isn’t the first star from the Marvel Studios films to appear on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Samuel L. Jackson has reprised his role as Nick Fury, Colbie Smulders returned as Agent Maria Hill, and Marvel legend Stan Lee is set to star in February 4th’s episode. Hopefully this opens the door to other minor role characters appearing on the show.
I’m really happy with how well the Agents is slowly progressing. It took a while to find its footing, but Marvel is now delivering solid episodes each week, and I’m looking forward to the second half of the season. Hopefully it ties in to Captain America: The Winter Solider in March or April, seeing as though the upcoming film revolves around the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premiers Tuesday nights at 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC. Thor: The Dark World will be released on DVD and Blu-ray February 25th.
