The second half of Season 1 for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. looks to be aiming to impress! On March 4th, Bill Paxton will be making his first appearance of (hopefully) many when his character John Garrett aids the team in their search for the evil Clairvoyant! If you are wondering who the Clairvoyant may be, or have any speculation on the topic, you may want to read what our resident comic book expert Doc Palindrome has to say! Don’t miss Doc’s Top 10 List, later today on DFAT, of who he thinks this manipulative character is! But speaking of guest appearances we are finally getting out first look at Jamie Alexader as Lady Sif! Sif is set to appear in the March 11th episode, “Yes Men“, and we are finally getting our first look at her on set courtesy of TVGuide!
“We always have our radar up for ways to tie our series into the Marvel films and bringing in an Asgardian really cements that connection. Lady Sif comes here on a hunting mission — sent by Odin — to find her arch-enemy Lorelei and bring her back to Asgard. It throws our agents for a loop when they find themselves in a fight right alongside this powerful woman from Thor’s world.”
-Executive Producer Jed Whedon
“Jaimie walked onto the set in full Lady Sif regalia just as she looks in the movies — from the huge, mile-high boots to the metal armor — and she towered over everyone. It was so striking and impressive, all we could do was stare. It was very cool!”
-Executive Producer Maurissa Tancharoen
As we all know Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has at least some continuity with what is going on in the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe, and just like they had a crossover episode with Thor: The Dark World it won’t be any different when the rest of the movies roll into theaters! Clark Gregg gives everyone a little insight about will happen when the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier! Will we see Agent Coulson gush over his childhood hero some more? I’m sure we will!
