The upcoming Disney streaming service Disney+ is looking to expand the Marvel Cinematic Universe on a smaller scale and there’s news that another MCU series is being developed.
According to Discussing Film, Kevin Feige is in the process of helping to develop a series for the streaming service featuring Thor character Lady Sif. The article goes to state that Jaimie Alexander is expected to reprise her role as Sif for the series which Feige will produce. It is also unclear where in the MCU timeline the proposed series will take place.
Sif was featured prominently in the first two Thor films, but has been absent from the franchise and the MCU since Thor: The Dark World and her appearance on an episode of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD. With the MCU touting that “it’s all connected”, the absence of the character from Thor: Ragnarok was noted. Perhaps this new series could answer the question of where Lady Sif was during the events of Ragnarok and whether her actions during that time will impact the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
If confirmed, Lady Sif will join the Vision and Scarlet Witch, Loki and Falcon and the Winter Soldier limited series currently in development.
