THOR: TDW: Jaimie Alexander On Wanting to See Evil Sif; Turning Down Tough-Girl Roles

"'We’ll put you in a push-up bra and hot pants and you’ll run around and punch some guy in the face.' How about not." The actress says she gets a LOT of these type of role offers, but isn't interested. Plus, find out where she'd like to see her character Sif go in another movie..

Jaimie Alexander's Sif gets to see quite a bit of action in Thor: The Dark World, but because the movie is jam packed with characters all competing for screen time, she unfortunately disappears from the last act. Sif has been a fan favorite since her first appearance in Thor, and there's no doubt that audiences would like to see a bit more of her. But where does Alexander fancy seeing this character end up? Well, evil it turns out! “I would love to see her as Lady Loki. I would love for her to be evil.” she tells Cinemovie. But don't worry, she doesn't want Sif to completely turn to the darkside -- just a temporary Loki possession so she can battle her good side. The actress is also asked about the various "touch chick" role offers she must be inundated with since playing Sif, and she reveals that she turns most down because of the scripts. “'Oh, yeah! We’ll put you in a push-up bra and hot pants and you’ll run around and punch some guy in the face'. I'm like how about not." Of course if she does wind up playing Wonder Woman she may have to learn to love hotpants! But one would assume that'd be a different story script wise.

I think she may actually end up being wonder woman
remember when ben Affleck was just having conversations with warner brothers
thebearjew - 11/5/2013, 8:50 AM
fast forward boom batman
Omarvls - 11/5/2013, 8:52 AM
If she sticks with Marvel she will have a much bigger role in Thor 3 (Surtur/Enchantress/) and a possible Game of Thrones type show on HBO as Sif

If she goes with DC/WB she becomes Wonder Woman and has her own franchise

Tough Call?
I think not Wonder Woman is what she will pick
imo
Enphlieuwince - 11/5/2013, 8:53 AM
I want Wonder Woman but a part of me is afraid of how they would change her to suit JA if she got the role.
Enphlieuwince - 11/5/2013, 8:54 AM
If Wonder Woman is on the table she'd be a fool to pass it up regardless of what bones they decide to throw Sif.
knocturnalzen10 - 11/5/2013, 8:55 AM
sif vs ww would be a [frick]ing brawl ........
BatManiac - 11/5/2013, 8:55 AM
I found her role was somewhat smaller in The Dark World than it was Thor. Darcy got more screen time than Lady Sif without a doubt.
Enphlieuwince - 11/5/2013, 8:56 AM
@beto, lol...
InfiniteMonkey - 11/5/2013, 8:56 AM
Sif against Wonder Woman, that would be a sight.
Just wait for the first one to rip off their breast plate...
thebearjew - 11/5/2013, 8:56 AM
@0megaDaGod

exactly
BatManiac - 11/5/2013, 8:58 AM
Lady Sif is no match for the strength of Gaea.
Superman21 - 11/5/2013, 9:02 AM
Maybe we'll see Lady Loki in Thor 3.
Enphlieuwince - 11/5/2013, 9:05 AM
That dress was sexy as [frick]...
JoeMomma29 - 11/5/2013, 9:05 AM
Good luck on Marvel giving Sif a major role! I am pretty sure she will be WW, she is not going to pass up an opportunity to play a leading role.
BatManiac - 11/5/2013, 9:06 AM
Wonder Woman would break a bitches jaw for calling her outfit 'slutty'. Wonder Woman's swimsuit outfit gives her great mobility, so why wouldn't she wear it? I personally think they should stick with it, and give us something like this.

TheWolverine08 - 11/5/2013, 9:07 AM
@Batmaniac Oh, cleavage. *Licks lips* I hope Diana doesn't break me.
ruadh - 11/5/2013, 9:07 AM
She's in talks to play Huntress. (my guess)
dripdry - 11/5/2013, 9:08 AM
I hope she stays with Marvel....Dc Wonder Woman is ok but I just dont see how they will put batman, lantern, superman and WW on the same screen in all there silly

'get up' without it looking like bad comic con cosplay.

Wonder Woman cartoon was ok though ....she does have some nice b....oots too.

@MartianAbominationClone
"If she bulks up a bit and is actually good as well as masking her English accent, I'll take back EVERYTHING bad I've said about her. However, yeah, I hope she isn't WW. Makes WB looks really desperate."

English accent? She's 'merican!
BatManiac - 11/5/2013, 9:09 AM
If Alexander has landed the role of Wonder Woman, I doubt Snyder would have her in the movie without her transforming her body to look the part more. I mean Affleck is in the gym now buffing up, Snyder had Antje Traue in the gym, and he wanted Cavill to transform his body for the role too, so Alexander would most probably have to do the same.
Enphlieuwince - 11/5/2013, 9:11 AM
@Batmaniac, I totally agree. It's stupid to make the character conform to our opinion of tasteful attire because she's from an entirely different culture. Besides, once again, calling this version slutty is lkke calling most Olympic gymnastics teams slutty and I know JA isn't bold enough to go there.
BatManiac - 11/5/2013, 9:11 AM
@beto

LMAO!
charlie2094 - 11/5/2013, 9:14 AM
@Batmaniac

The swimsuit costume really does look ridiculous, I highly doubt they'd ever used that on film, be hard to take it seriously; would be like having Namor just walk around in swimming trunks instead of a proper costume. Works in the comics to a point, but not on screen. Top half would be fine, but at least fill out the legs. Like how Marvel would never used the Ms.Marvel costume, it'd probably be more in line with the Captain Marvel revamp
BatManiac - 11/5/2013, 9:14 AM
The Amazons use men to have children, and get rid of the men when their done as well as any male children they have. Do you think they'd understand this concept of 'slut'?

Somehow, I don't think so.
ruadh - 11/5/2013, 9:17 AM
"HBO is owned by WB. No way will any Marvel TV show see the light of day on there."

Hey, money talks. Since WB is a business, and not a group of petty, competitive nerds, I imagine a Marvel show that might make them a sizable profit would be greenlit.
jlabatman - 11/5/2013, 9:18 AM
Damn, gusto!
BatManiac - 11/5/2013, 9:20 AM
What would look even more ridiculous is having Superman & Batman in their costumes (which both can be considered ridiculous too) but Wonder Woman in some watered down costume.

I mean did you see the costume Snyder gave Silk Spectre? He wouldn't get rid of the costume for shit.
Negaduck - 11/5/2013, 9:21 AM
Some of you people are ridiculous haha. She never said the WW outfit was slutty or anything like that. She was probably just talking about all of the generic roles she gets offered to be the eye candy in crappy action movies.
Vaportrail - 11/5/2013, 9:21 AM
I know exactly what kind of movie she's talking about and I'm glad she's smart about it.

Wonder Woman would be a much higher caliber and an excellent career move that takes her from "Ohh yeah she was that girl in Thor" to "omg Wonder Woman's in this movie".
SuperCat - 11/5/2013, 9:21 AM
I've seen Jaimie so much on this site, I think I'm falling in love with her.

ruadh - 11/5/2013, 9:22 AM
@BlackJack10
I guess you're right. Marvel and DC have never collaborated on anything, and they actively spit on each other when ever given the opportunity.

Come on, don't be so short sighted. again, they are a business, and they surely aren't. If a Marvel show came along, and HBO saw it as a surefire hit, there's no way they'd turn it away. Why let some other network profit when they can? Also, NO company has enough money. If they did, they'd close down their doors. Get real.
Negaduck - 11/5/2013, 9:26 AM
If HBO wanted a Marvel show they would make it without question. Business is business. The DC and Marvel cinematic universes are not at war with each other. Only online nerds are. They have all agreed that any comic film that does well is good for everyone's bottom line. It keeps the movies coming out and productive. The general public doesn't even always know which characters belong to which company.
ruadh - 11/5/2013, 9:27 AM
@Downboy

Exactly.

I wouldn't want to see the pumas either...

I brought back up!
BatManiac - 11/5/2013, 9:31 AM
I'm sure HBO would make a Marvel show if they wanted, but I HIGHLY doubt Marvel Studios will ever make a HBO show based in the MCU. Maybe Fox, but not Marvel Studios.

Disney are all about making money, and they can't sell toys based off an HBO show like they could a family friendly show on ABC.
DEVLIN712 - 11/5/2013, 9:33 AM
Not sure what I'd think of a TV show... It would be all watered down and family friendly. I want to see a show that's more like GoT
ruadh - 11/5/2013, 9:34 AM
@Batmaniac

That's not a really solid point, since there are absolutely no toys based on their family friendly ABC show.
ruadh - 11/5/2013, 9:36 AM
@beto

I'm sure they've have plenty of pitches, but HBO is pretty strict with what they'll go for. If it was the right project, and fit with the kinda stuff they put out, I'm sure they'd do one.
SuperCat - 11/5/2013, 9:37 AM
LOL! @ DEVLIN712

Thanks!!
