Captain America: Civil War Sets Up Thor: Ragnarok, Says Jaimie Alexander


In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the events of one movie can be keenly felt in another, from Tony Stark’s Avengers-induced PTSD in Iron Man 3 to the dissolution of S.H.I.E.L.D. (seen in Captain America: The Winter Soldier) in Avengers: Age of Ultron. And so, perhaps it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to hear from Jaimie Alexander, who plays Sif in the Thor movies, that Captain America: Civil War will start to lay the groundwork for Thor: Ragnarok.

Though Chris Hemsworth’s God of Thunder is not scheduled to make an appearance in Civil War, given that he was last seen returning to Asgard in order to make sense of visions shown to him by psychic Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) during Age of Ultron, the super-sized Marvel outing won’t completely pass over Thor and his own personal quest within the MCU.


According to Alexander, clues about Ragnarok will be dispersed throughout Civil War. Speaking with the Los Angeles Times Hero Complex blog, she said:

“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.”

Alexander clarified that though she’s being kept in the dark about the exact plot details of the third (and rumored to be final) Thor solo pic, fans can expect Sif to make more than just a passing appearance:

“Marvel, I think on purpose, they don’t tell me certain things, 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 expected to arrive July 28, 2017. Chris Kyle and Christopher Yost are penning the script, and no director has yet been announced.
