Just last week we told you that Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander) was going to cross over from Thor and pop up in an upcoming episode of S.H.I.E.L.D., and that Sif would be “integral” to the storyline she was set to appear in.
What we didn't know were the reasons why she was going to show up in the Marvel TV series in the first place.
S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer Jeph Loeb revealed that Sif is "here to hunt down another Marvel character." That other character, you ask? Loeb says that it’s another Marvel Asgardian villain named Lorelei (played by actress Elena Satine, who played Mera on Smallville).
Loeb said, "Lorelei is from Asgard. She's a beautiful redhead who has the ability to sway men's minds. She has this in her own unique way of speaking."
A tiny bit of Marvel trivia here: Lorelei was often involved in Loki's evil schemes and also happens to be the sister of another powerful female Asgardian villain: the Enchantress.
Are you guys excited that Lorelei will make her very first appearance in the Marvel universe by showing up in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?
