S.H.I.E.L.D. is getting a visit from a big-screen superhero for the very first time. Marvel announced at ABC’s TCA winter press tour that Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander), Thor’s warrior buddy from both of his standalone films, will be making an appearance on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the near future.
This won’t be the TV show’s first run-in with Asgard. The season’s eighth episode, titled “The Well,” was timed to coincide (roughly) with the release of Thor: The Dark World, and centered on the aftermath of events seen in the film. It happens that Alexander’s guest spot also doubles as Thor: The Dark World promotion — the DVD/Blu-ray hits shelves February 25.
Plot specifics are being kept under wraps for now, of course. Marvel would say only that Sif would drop down to Earth from Asgard “with a very specific mission.” Lady Sif’s visit is being shot right now, and will air as the 15th episode of the season. [Screen Crush]
After the jump, Marvel’s new TV project Agent Carter picks up a couple of writers.

The fate of the second season of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD is still up in the air — will there be one? — but while the first season is still on, showrunners Maurissa Tancharoen and Jed Whedon are pulling out all the stops. They’ve already tackled the Agent Coulson mystery, ramifications of Thor: The Dark World, they’ll be dealing with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Stan Lee will be appearing soon. Now a surprising actor is joining the cast. Bill Paxton, best known for his work in Aliens, Twister and Big Love, has been cast as Agent John Garrett for a multi-episode arc. Read More »
After teasing it for ten episodes, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. finally revealed exactly how Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) returned on the show after being killed by Loki in The Avengers. Details are below. Read More »
Briefly: Tuesday’s return episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is rumored to answer a big question: where was Agent Coulson between The Avengers and the beginning of the show? That potential info has created a little buzz for the show and this new tidbit will probably cause more. Marvel legend Stan Lee has revealed he’ll have a “big role” on the February 4th episode of the show. Considering he’s been in almost every Marvel movie up until now, it makes sense.

Yup, more quotes from Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. But when the man in charge of such an exciting slate of films actually comes out and talks to the press (a rarity in the business in general – do you see Kathleen Kennedy doing as much press?) you’d be smart to pay attention.
With his latest quotes, Feige discusses one of the subgenres Marvel has yet to tackle on film, but have started discussing, is an old-school secret identity film. Then, over in the TV realm, he teases the possibility of a more mature, non-network Marvel TV show potentially focusing on Daredevil or the Punisher, and the possibility of Phase 2 films having ramifications on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
