Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD has recently faced a lot of fire for its slow- burn (read: painfully boring) approach to the stories of several SHIELD agents working under movie funnyman (and Captain America fanboy) Agent Phil Coulson. The show runner’s response has been a new plot involving Thor sidelines player, Lady Sif.
Jaime Alexander will reprise her role as Lady Sif on the March 11 episode of SHIELD, entitled “Yes Men.”
SHIELD executive producer Jed Whe- don (not a typo—it’s his brother) said this about Lady Sif’s visit:
“Lady Sif comes here on a hunting mission—sent by Odin—to find her arch-enemy Lorelei and bring her back to Asgard. It throws our agents for a loop when they find themselves in a fight right alongside this powerful woman from Thor’s world.”
A picture has been released of Lady Sif’s visit, which doesn’t do much to assuage concerns about the cheap- looking aesthetic of the show.
Will you be watching? Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD returns with new episodes Tuesday, March 4 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
