Lady Sif series possibly in the works - Disney +

Lady Sif was introduced in the first Thormovie and had a fairly substantial part to play in the story, but since then the character has been seriously underutilized in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with only a short cameo in Thor: The Dark World and an an appearance on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to boast of.

Well, the "Goddess of War" may finally be about to get the respect she's due - but this time on the small screen.

Discussing Film reckons Marvel is in the process of developing a solo Sif series for the Disney+ streaming service along with the likes of The Vision and Scarlet Witch and Falcon And The Winter Solider. We don't have many other details to go on just yet, but Jaimie Alexander is expected to return as the highly skilled Asgardian warrior.

Yeah, someone posted this in the MCU thread and the source seems real sketchy. Assuming that this is true, which I doubt, I'd honestly be disappointed. They've got a Loki and Vision/Scarlet Witch show and they're gonna do a Lady Sif show? Nah, no way.
Vision / Wanda
Falcon / Bucky

Sif / Loki? straight up Journey into Mystery

She was absent in Ragnarok when they killed off most of Thor's asgardian allies. If they kept this away from high fantasy, make it like Outlander or GoT it could be awesome.

I'd honestly prefer a Lady Thor run with Portman eventually.

Portman would never do a Disney+ series.

She was pushing hard for a female director, specifically Patty Jenkins. Eventually Patty walked away, simply expressing that she didn't believe in it, couldn't make their script work, and they probably were probably especially rigid at that time for wiggle room she would have wanted.

And it shows, as Thor 2 is about absolutely fucking nothing. There is no thematic heart to it.

I never understood the popularity of this character. I feel like she barely had any scenes. Unless she had a lot in Thor 2, which I have excised from my mind.

That's part of it. The first part is she didn't want to come back for Thor 2 (despite being under contract for it) because she only did Thor 1 to work with Branagh.

Wasn't this talked about ages ago?

As for Blindspot, yeah that's probably not making it to another season given the ratings unless WB gives NBC a good deal for a shortened final season to wrap it up if they don't in the forth, might want to hit 100 episodes too.

Didn't even know this character existed, but after looking into it I'm honestly pretty excited to see this! I'm not much of a fan of MCU really, but the TV shows have managed to surprise me before, especially with Agent Carter and Jessica Jones.

it makes sense, I mean after all Jamie Alexander did say Sif, in her way, is Marvels Wonder Woman.

Portman is never coming back. They will either recast or use the Lady Thor Framework with another character.

MCU Lady Sif is awesome tho, they could easily adapt her to be Lady Thor if they want to go that direction.

I do love me some Sif, so I like the idea. I was sort of assuming she'd never show up again after everything Asgard (except for Thor and Loki) got thrown out in Ragnarok. Valkyrie is as cool (if not cooler) but I think she has a much bigger future on the film side.

I'm not sure what the plot could be though. Maybe they could introduce Beta Ray Bill and have them go on adventures... though I guess that depends on whether these shows have "horseman cgi" level budgets.

Loki can carry a series. Scarlet witch and Vision can't carry a series, but together they can.

There's no way Lady Sif can. She's such a minor character, most fans of the MCU probably have no idea who she even is.
