A Missing ‘Thor’ Character Has Been Confirmed for ‘Ragnarok’

Marvel Entertainment

This November, the beefy Thor (Chris Hemsworth) will reunite with his Avengers colleague Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) to fight the evil Hela (Cate Blanchett) in Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok. But while Thor and Hulk will assemble a new team to fight the dark Norse goddess, one of Thor’s oldest compatriots, Lady Sif (Jamie Alexander) may make her triumphant return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In a promo for an upcoming episode of Talking with Chris Hardwick on AMC, Alexander — who plays around with a huge fantasy sword in the clip — is billed as “Jamie Alexander from Thor: Ragnarok.” That’s an interesting credit, considering Alexander also stars in the successful crime drama Blindspot on NBC, which will premiere its third season this October.

Does this mean Lady Sif will be in Thor: Ragnarok? This is the most concrete confirmation thus far that she will. As one of the more popular characters in the MCU, Alexander’s Sif is one of the rare characters to have crossed over from the films to TV, with two appearances on the Marvel TV series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Meanwhile, Thor’s other friends, the legendary Warriors Three — Fandral (Zachary Levi), Hogun (Tadanobu Asano), and Volstagg (Ray Stevenson) — may also be primed for a return.

Roughly around the same time Thor: Ragnarok was filming in Australia, Asano shared a selfie from an Australian beach on his Instagram page. Stevenson got a tattoo “in between filming,” as revealed by a tattoo parlor based in Melbourne. Jury’s out on Zachary Levi coming back as Fanral, however.

Thor: Ragnarok will be released on November 3.
