So far, ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." has been fairly restrained when it comes to tapping into the goodwill from Marvel's hit theatrical franchises.
Cobie Smulders' Maria Hill topped up in the pilot and hasn't been seen since. Samuel L. Jackson appeared in the tag of one episode as Nick Fury, but he hasn't been seen since. A November episode featured a tie-in to "Thor: The Dark World" and I honestly don't remember if the threads introduced in that episode have rippled forward.
The latest movie-to-TV crossover occurs on Tuesday's (March 11) episode, as Jaimie Alexander brings Lady Sif to ABC for an episode that also features Lorelei, a seductive Asgardian with a complicated relationship with both Thor and Loki.
Lorelei, played by "Magic City" veteran Elena Satine, was introduced at the end of last week's "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." using her amorous wiles to charm a ride from the desert towards civilization, presumably with nefarious intent.
Will it be up to Lady Sif to stop Lorelei? Let's just say that Jaimie Alexander wasn't offering many hints when we talked last week. In lieu of spoilers, though, she discussed the difference in pace and scale of playing Lady Sif for TV and talked about the excitement of working on a set with so many strong actresses and strong female characters.
