Lady Sif will arrive on Earth to join Agent Phil Coulson and the rest of the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents for a special guest appearance on the show's fifteenth episode of its first season.
ABC president Paul Lee announced on Friday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour that Jamie Alexander is slated to make an appearance on the show. He assured that Lady Sif's role is "integral" to the episode, unlike previous cross-overs such as Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.
Marvel said in its release, "Sif has come to Earth with a very specific mission. Unfortunately, we can't tell you just what brings her to our neck of the woods just yet."
The Asgardian warrior goddess will mark the first non-S.H.I.E.L.D. agent character from the movies to be introduced on S.H.I.E.L.D. We last saw her in the action-packed battle between realms in Thor: The Dark World.
Marvel also announced last Monday that S.H.I.E.L.D.'s newest recruit, Bill Paxton, will guest star in an upcoming episode as Agent John Garret, an old colleague of Coulson.
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will return in February with an episode featuring Marvel legend Stan Lee. The show airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
Despite the show's plummeted ratings, are you excited to see the Asgardian heroine in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?
