More From Jaimie Alexander On WONDER WOMAN, THOR: THE DARK WORLD And Female Superhero Roles

The actresses speaks out on the opportunity for women to capitalize on the superhero phenomenon in film. Plus, Alexander once again touches on the NBC Wonder Woman show while acknowledging she too had been approached for the role of the Amazon princess but her loyalty is to Marvel.



Jaimie once again touches on the failed NBC Wonder Woman show as she addresses a question about the state of women in action films.
Alexander: I think you’re going to see a lot more great roles for women in action movies, and I think that’s due to the superhero genre being so big right now. Male superheroes are a dime a dozen. Female superheroes not so much. There’s a lot of them in comic books, but not in films, and I think that will change in the very near future. There’s a huge open door for women there, to play these positive and strong – legitimately strong – characters that aren’t just about big boobs and overt sexuality.

Of course, having said that, they have to do justice to those roles. They tried to reboot Wonder Woman, which was a huge embarrassment if you ask me. Adrianne Palicki’s great, but you can’t take someone – no matter how talented – and put them in a trashy costume, then say they’re supposed to be a positive role model for women. I don’t think she got into it thinking that’s what they’re going to do, and I think she played her hand as well as she could, but that project was just not the way to go.

On whether she'd ever want to play Wonder Woman herself.
Alexander: I’ve actually been approached a couple of times about it. I think right now, my loyalty is to Marvel. But yes, I’d love to play more characters like Sif: keep the young girls of the world safe from slutty costumes and poorly written scripts!

She also fields a question about Thor: The Dark World but doesn't reveal any spoilers.
Alexander: Nothing too juicy. Even Sif must respect the power of the NDA. [Laughter.] I can say that we explore the relationship between Thor and Sif a little more in this film. And you get to see a lot more of the people of Asgard, what their daily lives are like. We get to explore a couple of other worlds as well. I think the fans are really going to like it.

Over on joblo.com, Alexander answered a question about how her role as Lady Sif has changed her career.
Alexander: It's definitely helped me find my niche which is action films. And I enjoy them very much. A lot of people [ask] 'what's a dream role for you, what's something you haven't done' and really, right now, I'm enjoying action films. It's what I want to do. I've been lucky that my career has taken me down that path.
