Following its announcement at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this month, fans have been hungry for any and all news about Taika Waititi’s upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder, starring Natalie Portman as Thor. This week, one Thor actor expressed her enthusiasm about possibly appearing in the film--Jaimie Alexander, who said that she wants her Lady Sif to be queen to Valkyrie’s King in the film.
The news came earlier this week, when, according to ComicBook.com, Alexander retweeted a news story that listed possible characters who could join Valkyrie on the Asgardian throne, adding the caption “>raises hand< ??” Since the conclusion of Avengers: Endgame when Thor gave Valkyrie the role of King of Asgard following his departure with the Guardians of the Galaxy, there has been considerable speculation on who will join her.
Since her appearances in the first two Thor films and the ABC series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Alexander has not made any appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, due largely to her involvement in the NBC series Blindspot. Previously, per ComicBook.com, she has expressed that she wanted to appear in Thor: Ragnarok, but scheduling conflicts prevented her from doing so.
Still, enthusiasm for Alexander and for Sif have prompted many fans to speculate on the possibility of the character in Thor: Love and Thunder or the upcoming Disney+ series Loki.
While we’re not sure how (or if) Alexander will fit into Love and Thunder, we’re beyond excited for the film, and we’ll keep our eye on the possibility of her appearing.
