Thor: Love and Thunder will soon gonna smash our screens. With the release of its trailer, many are speculating about the return of Thor’s longtime ally Lady Sif.
The long-awaited first trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder offer up plenty of exciting hints, from the titular God of Thunder’s interactions with the Guardians of the Galaxy and Russell Crowe’s introduction as Zeus to Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster wielding Mjolnir.
In between these things, one scene from the trailer had caught attention across social media and speculated the return of the hidden character that might be Lady Sif.
Where Was Lady Sif The Whole Time?
In the wake of Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Infinity War, the list of surviving Asgardians not named Thor or Valkyrie has grown very thin. Hela stated that almost half of the surviving Asgardians were murdered in the Infinity War.
One of the few who survived is Lady Sif, who was MIA during the events of Ragnarok but is confirmed to return for Thor: Love and Thunder. The reasons for her absence had a bit to do with her storyline as actor Jaimie Alexander, who plays Sif, got the lead in the TV series Blindspot in 2015, which went on for five seasons and was involved in unresolvable scheduling conflicts. But now that she’s back, let’s get a quick glimpse of where was she all this time!
Sif’s appearance in Love and Thunder is interesting for many reasons. According to traditional Norse myths, she’s the wife of Thunder God while the MCU re-imagined her as a platonic friend of Thor, that can still change. As, Thor: The Dark World hinted that Sif might have romantic feelings for the Asgardian prince.
Why Jaimie Alexander Coming Back To Thor 4 is Important
Adding Jane Foster here armed with Mjolnir as seen in the trailer along with an accompanying power boost and possible romantic entanglements of multiple varieties enter the fold. Furthermore, as one of the few named Asgardians still among the living, Sif can fill in a lot of background about unseen parts of the MCU in the events both before and since The Snap.
As to where she’s been, it will likely to be cleared up once Love and Thunder debuts. Officially, she was last seen delivering the Reality Stone to the Collector for safekeeping at the end of The Dark World. That meant she was still a warrior of Asgard when Loki seized the throne disguised as Odin. That was followed by a pair of appearances on Agents of SHIELD, where she claimed to be working on Odin’s orders. Sometime after that, she simply disappeared.
