BREAKING: Jaimie Alexander To Guest-Star On Agents of SHIELD As Lady Sif!

Today in Awesome

Exciting nerd news out of TCA today – Thor’s Jaimie Alexander will be appearing on ABC’S Agents of SHIELD

Former Marvel Entertainment’s Executive Director of TV Communications, Arune Singh tweeted some very exciting news from the ABC TCA presentation just a little while ago.

He added, the announcement “went over well here at #TCA14 Just wait till you see the episode- one of the best!”

Uh, duh, obviously. Alexander is fantastic. Though we’re happy to be able to look forward to her on Agents of SHIELD, we find it a little odd they didn’t include her in the Thor: The Dark World crossover episode (which could barely be called that) earlier this season. But it can definitely be considered smart they’re bringing in Marvel “superhero” characters at all considering that’s been a main gripe with fans.

According to ABC president Paul Lee, Alexander’s episode will be number 15 of this season. TV Line added, “Lee also teased a “really cool” arc coming up in the back half of the season, ultimately building to the reveal of The Clairvoyant, the mysterious entity who has been dogging, namely, Coulson, as well as his team.” Furthermore, Lee also suggested the Agent Carter series we talked about earlier today has a chance of making it onto ABC.
