Concept designer Jeremy Love has shared a number of pieces of concept art for a cut Thor: Love and Thunder scene featuring Jaimie Alexander’s Lady Sif. The actress first took on the role of the Asgardian warrior in 2011’s Thor. Alexander has since played the character across three films and three television series.
Following her absence from the people of Asgard in Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity Warand Avengers: EndgameAlexander returned as Lady Sif for a brief appearance in Taika Waititi’s latest Thor adventure, Love and Thunder. As Gorr the God-Butcher (Christian Bale) begins his quest to wipe out all gods, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) receives a distress call from Sif, who tracked the villain after he murdered the colossal god Falligar. Traveling to an ice world, Thor and Korg (Waititi) find a wounded Sif, having lost her arm to Gorr, before taking her back to New Asgard for aid. Natalie Portman has teased the film’s deleted scenes in past interviews and now a number of recently shared pieces of concept art have revealed an extended sequence involving Sif that never made it to film.
On his ArtStation account, Love shared several pieces of concept art that depicted a cut scene that saw Sif exploring the ice-world before her fight with Gorr. In the artwork, Sif can be seen exploring a shrine dedicated to Falligar in an ice cave that features a large golden monument, surrounded by the god’s worshipers. After investigating the monument, Sif makes her way toward an opening, where Falligar’s corpse is revealed at the distance, appearing closely to how it looks in the final film. According to Love, the artwork was created early in production process. Check out Love’s artwork below and click here to see even more.
Despite Alexander returning for brief a cameo in LokiSif had been absent from the ongoing MCU narrative prior to Love and Thunder since 2015, when she appeared in season 2 of Agents of SHIELD. While Thor and Sif’s close friends The Warriors Three appeared in 2017’s Thor: RagnarokSif was absent from Asgard during Hela’s (Cate Blanchett) attack, due to Alexander being preoccupied filming the NBC crime drama Blindspot. According to Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige in a 2017 interview, Sif had likely been banished by Loki (Tom Hiddleston) when he was disguised as Odin (Anthony Hopkins) following Thor: The Dark World. Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame Co-director Joe Russo also addressed Sif’s fate in both of his films, stating that she was a victim of Thanos (Josh Brolin) and had disappeared during the Blip.
Lady Sif’s appearance in Thor: Love and Thunder finally saw the character return to screens once more after an almost seven-year absence, with Alexander being keen on returning to the role in a possible future series. While her appearance was brief, Sif’s scene quickly established Gorr as a threat due to him being able to defeat the powerful Asgardian warrior. Despite ultimately never being filmed, Love’s artwork gives fans a glimpse at an alternative introduction for the long-awaited returning character.
