Making promotional rounds for The Last Stand, Jaimie Alexander recently talked in-depth with I Am Rogue about her ‘Lady Sif’ role in Marvel's much-anticipated Thor: The Dark World. Weighing in on the sequel's new direction via Alan Taylor, the actress discusses her character's relationship with Chris Hemsworth's titular hero, the Warriors Three, and Zachary Levi. Check out the video below.

“I just finished shooting about a week and a half ago. There's going to be a bit of a darker feel and obviously a lot more action. We get to explore different realms a lot more and you see a lot more Asgard; and you get to know the people of Asgard. There is more [character development] with Sif. We sort of explore the Thor-Sif relationship a little bit; kind of [in a romantic way]. It's more like getting a feel of who these people are, how the way they are with each other. It was really fun for me and Chris. Him and I are almost like brother and sister too, so I was like maybe that translates into 'ohh they love each other on camera.' We had a good time making that movie.”

“That was hard at first [returning with a new director] because I didn't know what to expect. I love Kenneth Branagh very much He was a huge staple in my life because he launched my career. I gotta say, however, it is always great working with new people. Alan Taylor has brought a whole new vision to Thor. We've remained our own characters obviously, so there's still that similarity between the first and second one. But there's a darker feel to this one; a little more Gladiator-ish, a bit more viking-ish. So I'm really excited to see how it turns out.”

“The script did [feel more rooted in the comic book stuff]. I could read certain scenes and actually see how someone would do the drawings on the page. With that sense, Marvel was great; they said 'make it your own.' We just have a great team. I have been very lucky in my career. It was slightly different [with Zachary Levi coming in], because he's not Josh Dallas, but he's fantastic. And I've know Zach for years. He was actually one of the first choices for Fandral, so it's great to have him on board. He's definitely Fandral, and he's such a lovely guy, team player and really sweet. Everybody welcomed him with open arms and he's definitely a part of the family.”





Marvel Studios’ “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all. Starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano and Jaimie Alexander with Rene Russo & Anthony Hopkins as Odin, “Thor: The Dark World” is directed by Alan Taylor, produced by Kevin Feige, from a story by Don Payne (credit not final) and screenplay by Christopher Yost and Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely (credit not final) and is based on Marvel’s classic Super Hero Thor, who first appeared in the comic book “Journey into Mystery” #83 in August, 1962. “Thor: The Dark World” is presented by Marvel Studios. The executive producers are Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Stan Lee, Victoria Alonso, Craig Kyle and Nigel Gostelow. The film releases November 8, 2013, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios.

Looking forward to seeing more Asgard in this one. Felt like we didn't get enough of it in the last movie.
WhiteBolt - 1/5/2013, 5:47 PM
What a beauty, but she does need to add some weight.
rocky - 1/5/2013, 5:54 PM
Marvel needs to find a meatier role for her or expand Sif's role. She needs to be on camera more

She would also make a great WW in the JL film although I doubt WB would want her now
marvel72 - 1/5/2013, 5:56 PM
i'd rather see a thor & lady sif relationship than one with jane foster.
2gold - 1/5/2013, 5:59 PM
Brother and sisterly? That could go bad later.
deanwilkins - 1/5/2013, 6:00 PM

bazinga85 - 1/5/2013, 6:09 PM

BrotherStarkofMABMindz - 1/5/2013, 6:12 PM
Knowing Disney we shouldn't expect a trailer until Superbowl or next Marvel movie which is Iron Man 3
thorhulk77 - 1/5/2013, 6:12 PM

BrotherStarkofMABMindz - 1/5/2013, 6:12 PM

gambgel - 1/5/2013, 6:38 PM
Glad to read its more darker.

I just hope this feels more adult and intense and less like a kids/teenagers movie
TankD - 1/5/2013, 6:46 PM
Anyone remember her from the episode of Always Sunny when she manipulates dennis to take her to prom?? I would have done it. Dennis was a vag...

I loved the first Thor film. Iam worried that this sequel will ruin the awesome formula of the first film. I am starting to get sick of movies taking the "Darker" approach. Everything is starting to look the same. Man of steel, Star Trek Into Darkness, and even Skyfall are all taking too much from the Dark Knight trilogy in an attempt to try to gain audience approval. I am starting to hate that style.

I loved the scifi feel of the first Thor film. I thought it was refreshing and different and really stood out because of it. And I liked the humor. Now it seems like the whole style and tone will change. marvel has been making great films that are fun to watch. I hope they dont ruin it because every film is trying to be dark now.

It may SEEM that way, ThePowerCosmic, but the Dark Knight trilogy borrows a lot of ideas from other movies as well. Because it is so iconic now, we tend to think that any use of such tropes (Hannibal Lecture, for example, or ironically, Batman's Gambit) is a rip-off.

The bad guys have been getting themselves caught on purpose for a long time now.

Josh Dallas is in that horrible ABC show that my friend loves so much.... I'd say he's missing out, but then, I didn't really like him as Fandrall. Here's hoping the new guy will be more... dashing.

Jamie has GREAT SKIN... hah, that's the first thing I think when I see her. Looking forward to seeing more of Sif and her dynamic with Thor... not just the Warrior's Three.

PowerCosmic - I'm with you bro.

Thor can do dark , heck he can go to hel , he can get so dark it can be horror lol . That is one great thing about Thor he can do anything , action , sci fi , fantasy anything and he can go anywhere too .

Yes I agree that TDK trilogy did not start that style. I think of Blade Runner and The Crow as films that the trilogy borrowed heavily from. But yes, I just meant the current popularity of that darker style. Getting a bit overused and formulaic. That's why I cant wait for Guardians of the Galaxy. It might be a wacky idea, but at least it has potential to he something very unique.
Kayo - 1/5/2013, 8:40 PM
sounds pure awesomeness..........this movie is going to rock.
Durf - 1/5/2013, 8:41 PM
Hell yes to more of the Nine Realms and more of Sif! Love her as Sif.

And yes, she is really [frick]ing hot!
Ranger14 - 1/5/2013, 8:49 PM
Just because the word "dark" is mentioned does not mean it is in reference to the style of TDK or TDKR. That notion is quite ridiculous, but a conclusion everyone wants to jump to.

I am not the least bit worried about this film. The film is going to have more battles and action...which is a plus as far as I am concerned. The other realms of Asgard being explored is another plus and they are not supposed to be as tech and bright as Asgard is, so they will come across more "dark" in nature. That is what I a taking out of what she says. Taylor knows what he is doing with this style of film and world.
THORGodOfThunder - 1/5/2013, 9:28 PM
By far my most anticipated movie of 2013!!
clogan - 1/5/2013, 11:10 PM
I'd have her babies.

werty - 1/5/2013, 11:11 PM
Jaimi's beauty is beyond stunning. And she is so adorable. I love her personality. And her bum. She has a great bum
mgeoff88 - 1/6/2013, 1:37 AM
Hell Yeah! It sounds like she'll be kicking more ass in the sequel!

Not only is Jaimie Alexander very beautiful, but she is such an awesome girl.
GUNSMITH - 1/6/2013, 2:51 AM
MARVEL PICS THE BEST GUYS TO DO TRUE JUSTICE TO THEIR CHARACTERS...THEY WAY MARVEL STUDIO HEADS ARE HANDLING THEIR PROPERTIES I THINK IS THE BEST
iuhgluiblbjjkhkjhkljh - 1/6/2013, 5:30 AM
I hope they don't abandon the Jane Foster relationship, just for Lady Sif.
aztecRaingod - 1/6/2013, 6:38 AM
This movie has the potential to make 850 million. Its going to do well, no matter what. Thats what a movie like the Avengers will do for a character.

Even the dissapointing TDKR made a billion simply on the reputation of TDK.

I really think this movie will make at least 550, but if its a very good or great movie, it can make up to 850 million.
aztecRaingod - 1/6/2013, 6:39 AM
Powercosmic

You need to take a Zanax, this movie is going to rock.
aztecRaingod - 1/6/2013, 6:40 AM
@Ranger 14

I agree with every thing you said !
SpideyQuad - 1/6/2013, 9:30 AM
Honestly Thor would murder Jane in bed... he needs tougher stock like Sif

"Jane I'm sorry, but it was just a dream"
Kyos - 1/6/2013, 5:02 PM
Very excited for this movie! And although I really like Natalie Portman as an actress and as someone who's just nice to look at - Jane Foster needs to go...!

Ace101 - 1/7/2013, 4:00 AM
most anticipated movie of this year for me. seriously no word on balder and no pics of kurse yet :o
KNIGHT3000 - 1/7/2013, 7:15 AM
She lost some weight, don't lose too much Jaimie, I like them curves...
TheCaptain - 1/7/2013, 7:24 PM
She seems so cool and down to earth. Why can't hot girls at school act like this?? Lol. Like what I'm hearing about Thor: TDW though. Looks like Marvel realized the mistakes they made with the first one and they're correcting them.
