Jamie Alexander has been discussing her role in recent super sequel Thor: The Dark World , before also hinting at an interest in a prospective Wonder Woman feature.
“I hope [ the fans ] enjoy the movie as much as we did making it,” says Alexander, “and I can only pray for strong numbers, because when there are strong numbers there's going to be a third one.”
The way Thor: The Dark World finishes, it certainly seems as though that’s the plan. As for Alexander’s character, Sif, would she be interested in exploring that role further?
“I would love for there to be a spinoff film,” says Alexander. “I would absolutely say ‘yes!’ If the fans want it and there's a strong enough desire for it, it will happen. So, fingers crossed!”
Alexander went on to say that she has been “having discussions with both companies”, in relation to Marvel and D.C., an intriguing revelation given that she would be many fans’ choice for the role of Wonder Woman - and especially so, considering recent rumours that D.C. may try to smuggle tha character into (opens in new tab) Batman vs Superman (opens in new tab) / Man of Steel 2 …
“I'm a huge fan of Wonder Woman,” says Alexander, when the topic is raised. “I really think if this is the closest that we're ever going to get to Wonder Woman, then I'm proud to play Sif.
“I hope that other comic book entities can learn a lesson from Marvel in how to execute a female character the way it should be done. I really would like to one day see a Wonder Woman film or Wonder Woman character, but until it's done with class, I'd rather it not be done.”
While a solo film might be some way away, it has been suggested that Wonder Woman might crop up in Batman vs. Superman , with Alexander letting slip that she, “kind of knows the storyline for that movie.” Read into that what you will…
Her teasing tweets haven't done anything to quell the rumours either:
