In an effort to strengthen the connection between their television and film properties, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will feature Thor: The Dark World star Jaimie Alexander in an upcoming episode.  Playing the role of Asgardian warrior Lady Sif, it’s unknown at this time just what mission will bring her to Midgard, unless it’s to advertise the arrival of the Thor sequel on Blu-ray and DVD.  She may be tempted to bring a message to Thor himself, or possibly just to give an Asgardian side eye to Jane Foster, but it’s doubtful that either Chris Hemsworth or Natalie Portman will make an appearance.  The show does have some other high-profile additions lined up, however.  Hit the jump for more.

Marvel reportsthor-the-dark-world-jaimie-alexander-poster that Alexander will star as Lady Sif in an upcoming episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but no further details are available at this time.  They also casually mention that Thor: The Dark World will be available on Digital 3D and Digital HD February 4, and on 3D Combo Pack, Blu-ray and DVD February 25.

Viewers of the series can expect to see comic book legend Stan Lee make an appearance on next week’s episode, in which he’s said to have a “big role”; beyond that, we’re not sure just what he’ll be up to.  We’ve got a much better idea of what guest star Bill Paxton will be doing in his four-episode arc as Agent John Garrett.  Described by Jed Whedon as “a rough-and-tumble former cohort of Agent Coulson [Clark Gregg] with a little bit of attitude and cigar-smoking swagger.  While Garrett’s comic iteration eventually goes robo-cop after being injured in the line of duty, this version “refused to sit behind a desk and doesn’t like the formalities of S.H.I.E.L.D. He’s going to help Coulson solve some mysteries and is not afraid to rig an explosive or two.”

Is the show doing enough to keep you interested?  Let us know in the comments below!
