Bone crunching knock-backs are the stuff of rough and tumble action films that superhero movies like “Thor” perpetuate from on-set stunts to a Silver Screen vivification worth the ticket price.
“Thor: The Dark World” nominally boosts expectations for more of the same.
Right out the sets of Asgard and surrounding realms comes the cryptic news that Jaimie Alexander had suffered a fall and close call injury. Alexander, playing the Valkyrie-like Asgardian warrior Sif, told her Twitter fans of a sever fall occurring while shooting an action sequence.
After posting her injurious cause requiring hospitalization without explanation on the description regarding the severities. Only the chlling underline that Alexander nearly came to paralyzation hinges how serious the fall actually was that moment.
“Already in recovery mode and my spirits are high. I’ll be back kicking ass as Lady Sif in no time! It can only get better from here on out!”
Her later tweet that she’s well and better and enjoying the staff’s professional care assures that movie-goers are sure to enjoy plenty of power charging sequences with Sif fighting alongside Thor. Most likely against Malekith from actor Chris Eccleston and Adewale Akinnouye-Agbaje’s version of Algrim the Strong.
