'Captain America: Civil War' Will Tease 'Thor: Ragnarok,' Says Marvel Star
If Chris Hemsworth's absence on the cast list for next year's Captain America: Civil War made you think the movie would be missing all things Asgardian, think again. None other than Sif herself is teasing a Thor: Ragnarok tie-in for the next Marvel Studios production.
Talking to the Los Angeles Times' Hero Complex blog, Jaimie Alexander said that eagle-eyed fans can find clues about the third Thor movie all through the Marvel Cinematic Universe. "There's a lot of great stuff they've peppered in through Agents of SHIELD, [Avengers: Age of Ultron], Captain [America: Civil War] will have some stuff. There's just all kind of Easter eggs and hunts, if you're really paying attention. They're so good at interweaving everything throughout those films."
That doesn't mean that Alexander, who'll be appearing in NBC's Blindspot this fall, knows the plot of Ragnarok. "Marvel, I think on purpose, they don't tell me certain things," she said, "because they know I'll be like, 'So here's what's gonna happen.' But I do know I will be in Thor 3 and that Sif will have a very pivotal part in that movie. I just can't tell you what because I'll get shot."
Thor: Ragnarok is scheduled for a July 2017 release.
