In lower than one week, moviegoers will probably be heading to the movie show to see Thor: Ragnarok, and meet up with Thor, Loki, Hulk, and a bunch of new faces. One face viewers will not be seeing although is Girl Sif, who’s sitting this one out after showing in each of the earlier Thor films. It has been a small subject of mystery as to why that is, however each Marvel and actress Jaimie Alexander have remained tight-lipped about it…till now. Turns on the market’s no deep cause for Sif’s absence apart from scheduling conflicts, in response to Alexander.
I used to be requested, however the timing of after they had been going to shoot and when Blindspot was gonna shoot — it was just about the identical time. So there was a battle there. I hoped for extra of a discover from [the studio] so I may make it work, but it surely was a brief discover factor. They referred to as and stated, ‘Hey, by the best way, would you come do that?’ I stated there isn’t any manner I could make that work that quick.
Along with showing because the Asgardian warrior Girl Sif, Jaimie Alexander additionally stars in a tv thriller on NBC referred to as Blindspot. TV schedules are notoriously grueling, and it feels like Blindspot conflicted with a job in Thor: Ragnarok. Alexander advised Yahoo! that Marvel did attain out to her about showing within the film, however filming for the superhero sequel straight conflicted together with her TV present. So, Alexander simply wasn’t capable of do it. One thing tells me that Girl Sif did not have a really massive half anyway, so maybe Alexander did not miss out on a lot.
Additional complicating issues was the truth that Thor: Ragnarok was filming on a wholly totally different continent than Blindspot. Ragnarok filmed in Australia, that means that even when Alexander was capable of squeeze in time for the blockbuster, she’d by no means have the ability to make it midway the world over in time — at the very least not on the brief discover Marvel gave her.
It could not occur. They had been on a unique continent! So it was unhappy. I used to be bummed about it.
Whereas Jaimie Alexander needed to sit this one out, there’s all the time the consolidation that Girl Sif in all probability is not lifeless, which implies that there’s all the time Thor four (which Alexander stated she’d be very happy to do)! Whereas some could also be dissatisfied with the dearth of Sif, it is not like there may be already a riches of expertise within the film. The film is getting near universal praise, with a number of critics highlighting the performances of Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, and Chris Hemsworth.
