To clarify, this article and the ones similar to it that will follow are not reviews of this fall/midseason’s pilots (because pilots can change a lot between now and when they broadcast). These are just my first impressions of the not-for-air network pilots that I have been able to screen. I last wrote about CBS’ Supergirl. Next up: NBC’s Blindspot, which premieres on Monday, Sept. 21, at 10 p.m. The Premise: A naked woman, covered head to toe with tattoos, awakens from inside a duffel bag dropped in the middle of Time Square, with no idea of who she is. The only person who seems to have any shot at figuring out the identity of this Jane Doe is FBI Agent Kurt Weller, whose name is tattooed onto the woman’s back, dragging him and his team into this ever-growing mystery.

'Pixels' movie with Adam Sandler. 'Pixels' movie weekend box office: Adam Sandler vs. 'Ant-Man' Despite its underwhelming domestic box office debut last weekend, Marvel's Ant-Man may turn out to be the winner in North America this weekend (July 24–26, '15) thanks to another underwhelming debut: that of the Adam Sandler Pixels movie. According to weekend box office projections found at Variety, the Chris Columbus-directed Pixels is expected to open with $25 million from 3,723 locations – following a $10 million Friday take (including $1.5M from Thursday previews). If so, that'll place Adam Sandler's latest lowbrow comedy – now in 3D – on a par with Sandler domestic disappointments like Jack and Jill and Funny People. Deadline.com, for its part, is expecting $27-$28 million by Sunday evening. Sat., July 25, update: According to studio box office estimates, Pixels underperformed on Friday, taking in $9.2 million. That's below figures for Jack and Jill and, adjusted for »

There's no such thing as a standalone movie in the Marvel cinematic universe, with even something such as Ant-Man having a few threads to tie it to the broader world that's being created on screen. In the case of Captain America: Civil War, there's no shortage of crossover, given that not only is it set to round off Chris Evans' Captain America trilogy, but that the roster of Avengers in it is hardly small. Tony Stark, Black Widow, Ant-Man, Black Panther and Spider-Man are all expected to turn up, for a start.
Thor: Raganarok is still a couple of years at this point, but you can bet the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be laying the groundwork for it long before that. Jaimie Alexander, who’s set to return as Sif in the sequel, indicates that next year’s Captain America: Civil War will tie into Thor: Ragnarok. More on […]

Jaimie Alexander’s Lady Sif has played an important supporting role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appearing in 2011’s Thor, 2013’s Thor: The Dark World and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but it appears that her character may have an even bigger role in 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok.
In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Alexander stated, “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.”

You may recognize Jaimie Alexander's Asgardian warrior, Lady Sif, from a few scenes in both Thor and Thor: The Dark World. While she's been relegated to popping up in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for the time being, it looks like her character is really going to get in on the action coming Thor: Ragnarok. Alexander said this much when speaking with the L.A. Times, admitting that Marvel's generally reluctant to... Read More »

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. »

We're still two years away from "Thor: Raganarok," the film which is expected to deliver most of the setup for Marvel's two-part "Avengers: Infinity War" saga. Before then though we're getting several films which could contain hints about where the next 'Thor' will be going.
Speaking with The Los Angeles Times, actress Jaimie Alexander revealed that one of those films will be next year's "Captain America: Civil War" - even though Chris Hemsworth's Thor will not be in 'Civil':
"Yeah, there's a lot of great stuff they've peppered in through 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' 'The Avengers,' 'Captain' will have some stuff. There's just all kind of Easter eggs and hints, if you're really paying attention. They're so good at interweaving everything throughout those films."
Pressed for more details, Alexander demured on sharing more:
"Marvel, I think on purpose, they don't tell me certain things. »

She also teased fans by saying that her character Lady Sif will play a "very pivotal part" in Thor: Ragnarok.

Marvel's third phase has officially kicked off. Captain America: Civil War is next supercab off the rank and likely to end with the Marvelverse a much fractured and fragmented place. Somewhere within this heady and very well-populated brew, Jaimie Alexander, Aka Sif, told the La Times, will be a narrative tie-in with Thor: Ragnarok."There’s a lot of great stuff they’ve peppered in through Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Avengers [and] Captain [America: Civil War] will have some stuff,” Alexander tells the newspaper’s Hero Complex blog. "There's just all kind of Easter eggs and hints, if you’re really paying attention. They’re so good at interweaving everything throughout those films.”No major surprise there, perhaps, although with Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 and Doctor Strange to come before Thor 3, those tie-ins could potentially become a knotty business. Alexander took the fifth on how these possible Easter eggs might take shape ("Marvel, »

With the release of Ant-Man this past weekend, Marvel Phase Two has officially come to a close, as fans now start the countdown for Phase Three. One of the movies that will be featured in the nine-movie Phase Three is Thor: Ragnarok, set for release on November 3, 2017, but there is very little we know about the story thus far. Actress Jaimie Alexander was at Comic-Con a few weeks ago to promote her new NBC TV series Blindspot, where she revealed that the upcoming Captain America: Civil War will tease Thor: Ragnarok.
"Yeah, there's a lot of great stuff they've peppered in through Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War will have some stuff. There's just all kind of Easter eggs and hints, if you're really paying attention. They're so good at interweaving everything throughout those films."
Ironically, Chris Hemsworth is one of the only Avengers »
When L.A Times' Hero Complex spoke with Jaimie Alexander about her new NBC show Blindspot, she had also discussed her cinematic return as Lady Sif in Thor: Ragnarok. While the third solo outing for the God of Thunder doesn't hit theaters for over two years, the actress also implied there will be Ragnarok teasers, much like those in Avengers: Age of Ultron, in a 2016 Phase 3 movie. "Marvel, I think on purpose, they don’t tell me certain things," said Jaimie Alexander when asked about Sif's big-screen return. "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." About those Ragnarok teasers in Age of Ultron, Alexander said, "Yeah, there’s a lot »
'Ant-Man': Paul Rudd as Scott Lang. 'Ant-Man' box office below expectations: Lowest Marvel Cinematic Universe domestic debut Starring Paul Rudd as a bug-like (sizewise) action hero, Ant-Man was expected to open with $60-$65 million from 3,856 U.S. and Canada locations this past weekend, July 17-19, '15. That didn't happen. A mere three days ago, Variety enthused that Ant-Man was "marching to a solid $65 million weekend at the U.S. box office." But instead of a $65 million domestic debut like those of Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, Ant-Man bowed with a considerably more modest $57.22 million (down from the studio's $58.04 million Sunday estimate), including Thursday evening screenings. This latest Marvel Cinematic Universe entry averaged a highly disappointing – especially for an McU entry with loads of steeper-priced 3D and IMAX / Pfl screenings – $14,841 per location. But really, why "highly disappointing"? Trailing 'The Incredible Hulk' Even taking into account the fact »

Out of all the Marvel films, the ones starring the God of Thunder have unfortunately fallen a little short for me; that's not to say they're all bad however, the Thor film's have given us more than a few great characters who have thankfully managed to make appearances in other McU flicks. One such character, albeit a sadly underused one, is that of Jaimie Alexander's... Read More »

It’s easy to get a little distracted at Comic-Con. HitFix Harpy caught up with Jaimie Alexander to talk about her brand-new show “Blindspot.” However, the opening small talk soon turned into a hidden gem as Alexander revealed her hidden talent for speaking Shyriiwook! She’s tall, she’s action oriented, and she’s got the accent down. If Lucasfilm needed a lady Wookiee, Jaimie Alexander would be a smart choice. Just sayin’. Back on topic about “Blindspot,” I asked Alexander about stepping into Jane Doe’s shoes after playing Sif in the Thor movies. She said, “I really wanted something I could do that uses all my abilities as an actress, but also have it a little more reality-based so that not every strong female you see is a superhero.” Continuing with that theme, Alexander added: “For this show, I really wanted to let the viewers know ‘This could be you. »

She has hardly any idea who her latest character is.
The "Thor" actress talked with Access Hollywood at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday about headlining a series in which the lead role is someone completely unknown to herself, her co-stars and her audience. Luckily, she said, that's all part of the fun.
In the upcoming NBC drama, Jaimie stars as Jane Doe, a ...
