Lady Sif will be one of the main characters in “Thor: Ragnarok.” Jaimie Alexander, who played the role in “Thor,” said in a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times that her character will play a large part in the next Thor film.
“Marvel, I think on purpose, they don’t tell me certain things. Because they know I’ll be like, ‘So here's what's gonna happen.’ But I do know I will be in Thor 3 and that Sif will have a very pivotal part in that movie. I just can’t tell you what because I’ll get shot,” she said.
Alexander did not divulge further details about how her character will factor in the film, but according to Web speculations her backstory and relationship with Thor will be explored.
In the comics, Lady Sif is an Asgardian warrior and lover of Thor, and often accompanies him in his battles. She is Heimdall’s sister and like most Asgardians was born with golden hair until Loki cut it off and replaced it with magical hair made by dwarfs. From a very young age she has skills to become a great warrior and emerges as the best female warriors in Asgard. Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created the character and she made her first appearance in “Journey Into Mystery” No. 102.
Not much is known about the plot of “Thor: Ragnarok.” Earlier this year Chris Hemsworth, who plays the title role, said that he has no clue about the story as the script has yet to be finalized. “No, I can’t. But also, there is no script for ‘Thor,’ the next ‘Thor,’ so I have no idea,” he told Digital Spy. The film is set to release on Oct 27, 2017, and Kevin Feige is producing it.
