She further added, “I was just like, look, I got this. I’ll roll in the day of. Just stand there, don’t move. I did land a hit on him once. It was like a little love tap. I was moving a little faster than he was moving, and I made contact, and he fell to the ground because he was supposed to. I didn’t knock him to the ground. And he got up, and I said, ‘Tom, I’m so sorry.’ He goes, ‘No, no, no. It’s great, it’s great, it’s great.’ And I was like, ‘He thinks it’s great. I’ll do it again.'”

Loki’s head writer, Michael Waldron was the one who added Lady Sif to the plot. He said, “..Lady Sif is awesome! She’s a badass, fan-favorite character…She wasn’t dispatched by Hela in Ragnarok. She felt like somebody uniquely suited to really knee Loki in the nuts and punch him in the face a couple of times. So we were excited to get her in there, and she did a fantastic job.”

Lady Sif is returning to the Thor Movies

After her appearance in Thor: The Dark World, where she was seen handing over the Reality Stone to the Collector along with Volstagg of the Warriors Three, she is finally returning.
