Jaimie Alexander Talks THOR: THE DARK WORLD Trailer, Characters And WONDER WOMAN
Discussing her seemingly jealous face in the recently released trailer, Jaimie Alexander talks about Lady Sif's concerns over Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) in Thor: The Dark World. She also reiterates prior comments on possibly playing Wonder Woman.
In an interview with IGN, Jaimie Alexander talks about Thor: The Dark World and its recently released trailer. One of the most noticeable scenes in the teaser was when Lady Sif appeared with a seemingly jealous face, likely towards Jane Foster's (Natalie Portman) visiting Asgard and her relationship with Thor (Chris Hemsworth). Here, Alexander explains Sif's view as Jane being a threat not only in a love triangle way, but towards Asgard period. She also discusses the sequel's darker tone, the Game Of Thrones influence that director Alan Taylor brought, and teases more from the Warriors Three. Finally, Alexander once again shares her thoughts on possibly playing Wonder Woman for Warner Bros./DC Entertainment, and what needs to be done to get the character right.
On Lady Sif's Feelings Toward Jane In Thor: The Dark World:
"Well, I think that everyone can tell from the trailer that Jane comes to Asgard, which could pose a threat. You know, we’re bringing someone from another realm into our realm who technically shouldn’t be able to survive there. So I think she’s really, more than seeing Jane as a threat to somebody that she loves in a love triangle way, it’s more that Jane could be a threat to her people. And Sif is very protective of her fellow Asgardians and the throne and that sort of thing, so she’s quite wary of Jane. But also, she really, really loves Thor -- as a comrade, as a warrior and as the future king of Asgard -- but also as a man. So I think it’s very hard for her to see that he still has feelings for this other person. But you really get to see how much she loves him because she does end up sacrificing a lot. It’s a great part this time around. It was a lot of fun, and you get to see a more vulnerable side of Sif. You also get to see more of Asgard, the daily life in Asgard and the Warriors [Three] and where they come from, things like that. It’s going to be a lot of fun."
On The Sequel's Tone And Game Of Thrones Influences:
Yeah, definitely. Alan brought his own style to the film, which is great. It was up to us as actors to try and keep some continuity to it as well, because we’ve played these characters before. So that’ll still be there, but it’s definitely got a darker feel. I think people are going to like it. Again, I guess people are going to love or hate it, but I do think they’re going to enjoy it. It’s different, but all the characters are still the same. It’s not going to be too farfetched, and I really don’t think it’s going to feel like two separate franchises, just two separate films. I’m hoping that it smoothly crosses the first into the second. But yeah, those battle sequences he shot, he had so many great ideas, and the shots that he got were so great. It’s just really fun working with somebody who’s so excited and so passionate, because we had that on the first movie with Kenneth Branagh. So our hope for this one was that Alan was going to be a nice guy and collaborative, and he was all of those things and more. He was a really great person to work with."
On Whether Or Not She'd Be Interested In Playing Wonder Woman:
"You know, I’m very aware of that, and yeah, it is extremely flattering, because I really did love that character growing up. I think that if there was the right script and the right timing, like I’ve said before in interviews, it’d be nice to see Wonder Woman done sort of like The Bourne Identity or something a little bit more masculine and a bit more tough, because really all we’ve seen thus far is her running around in hot pants and big, huge boobs and not really doing much. And I’m talking about film and television, I’m not talking about the comic books, because actually in the comic books -- especially Allan Heinberg’s version -- she’s pretty badass! She works for the CIA, she’s incredible. But, you know, if something was done a little bit more classy and it had a lot more strength to it, I would consider it. There’s nothing I wouldn’t consider. Of course, I am Lady Sif in a Marvel franchise, and that may not work out, for me to play Wonder Woman, but I am absolutely flattered that people want me to play her because I’ve always loved her since I was a kid."
Thor: The Dark World stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Jaimie Alexander and Anthony Hopkins. The film is set to hit theaters November 8th.
