A rumor indicates that a Lady Sif television show could be in development for Disney’s upcoming streaming platform Disney+.
The rumor comes from MCU Cosmic, where they indicate the show will focus on around Sif’s banishment from Asgard and what the adventures she got into during that time. Some of those adventures involve dealing with Enchantress, but she won’t be dealing with the powerful magic user alone. The rumor indicates she will be joined by Beta Ray Bill, the Korbonite hero, whose visage graced the Grandmaster’s coliseum in Thor: Ragnarok.
If the rumor pans out to be true, it wouldn’t be the first time that Lady Sif made the jump from film to television.
Actress Jaimie Alexander appeared as Lady Sif in two episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. after her appearances in Thor and Thor: The Dark World. During her two appearances on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Sif was tasked by Loki masquerading as Odin to track down Lorelei, a powerful sorceress who had escaped Asgard when the Dark Elves attacked the city. She would eventually track down and capture Lorelei with the help of Phil Coulson and his team.
In a separate appearance, Sif is sent to track down a Kree named Vin-Tak who arrived on Earth. However, during her fight with the Kree, he uses a truncheon that causes her to lose her memory. With the help of S.H.I.E.L.D. Sif tracks down Vin-Tak, who uses his truncheon to restore Sif’s memories. Vin-Tak reveals he’s on Earth to remove the Kree experiments known as Inhumans. A fight ensues when it is discovered that Skye is an Inhuman that has the power to cause massive tremors. After Skye ices herself, Sif promises to take Vin-Tak back to Hala.
She would subsequently be banished by Loki posing as Odin, which allowed her to survive the events of Thor: Ragnarok. However, Avengers: Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo would reveal to HuffPost Brazil that Lady Sif was “gone” following Thanos’ snap. She would subsequently be resurrected by the Hulk in Avengers: Endgame.
It’s unclear how much validity this rumor has. It’s possible they could spin-off a Lady Sif show through the confirmed Loki Disney+ series with Tom Hiddleston.
One thing that does seem apparent is that Marvel Studios is interested in bringing Beta Ray Bill into the picture. A recent rumor involving Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 also indicates that Beta Ray Bill will appear in the film. He’s definitely a popular character in the comics and could be a solid replacement to Thor if Chris Hemsworth and Marvel Studios decide to go in a different direction. In fact, Thor’s Stormbreaker is actually the name of Beta Ray Bill’s weapon in the comics.
One thing that could hamper a Lady Sif television is Jaimie Alexander’s NBC show, Blindspot. The show was recently renewed for a final fifth season. However, her schedule might open up following the show’s final season leaving room for this rumored Lady Sif show.
