Marvel Studios is reportedly developing a Lady Sif series for the Disney+ streaming platform. According to sources, the show will see Jaimie Alexander reprise her role, which should make Marvel Cinematic Universe devotees pretty excited. The studio is currently developing a show based on Loki, Scarlet Witch and Vision, which just signed Jac Schaffer on to direct, and a Falcon And The Winter Solider series. Additionally, there have been rumors of a Rocket and Groot series, which would be pretty cool to see along with the rest of them.
Other than the fact that the Lady Sif series is in development, there isn't really any other information about the project, other than the fact that it will be on Disney+, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige will produce, and it will star Jaimie Alexander. It's not clear if the show will take place before or after the events of Ragnarok. Alexander was reportedly not able to star in Taika Waititi's take on the Thor franchise due to other commitments, though she has reprised her role for two cameos in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. series.
Lady Sif is a fan-favorite character, but the Russo Brothers have admitted that she was a victim of the Decimation, which may lead to the Disney+ series taking place before Ragnarok. However, it has also been rumored that Jaimie Alexander could be reprising her role for the Loki series, which would make sense. So far, the God of Mischief series is the only one that doesn't seem to have another character attached to it. Regardless, fans should be happy to know that there's a strong possibility that Alexander will be back as Lady Sif in the near future.
Jaimie Alexander stars in the NBC series Blindspot, which is currently in its fourth season. Alexander's representatives were contacted, but they did not have a response for the Lady Sif series news. As with most things that Marvel Studios does, expect this series, along with the rest of them, to be shrouded in mystery until they make their respective debuts on Disney+. It's beginning to look like the future is pretty bright for MCU fans who have been asking for more stories to be told.
Kevin Feige recently talked about his excitement to bring the MCU over to the Disney+ streaming platform, revealing that it will allow the studio to tell stories on the small screen in a much more expansive way, something that they couldn't get away with on the big screen. Each new Marvel show will reportedly cost $100 million to produce and they will all consist of 6-8 episodes, though that has not been officially confirmed at this time. If that's true, it will put the shows on par with what HBO has spent in the past with Game of Thrones and what Disney is doing with the live-action Star Wars series, The Mandalorian.
