    I’m not sure why the character’s name would be considered a spoiler. It should be safe to include her name in the title. – Stevoisiak Nov 6 '17 at 14:09

    I gotta say, it's pretty clever of Jaimie Alexander to have a scheduling conflict with the movie that most likely would have killed her off. It is much easier to bring her back for future movies than the Warriors Three. – J Doe Nov 9 '17 at 15:54

In universe, according to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige:

It's been in the works for many years, right, since we finished Dark World. What has Loki been doing on that throne in guise of Odin? And we always liked the idea that he was doing a good job! He was doing a good, but shortsighted job. The trains were running on time, but he wasn't paying attention to anything else going on in the universe or in the realms. ... So that was always one idea. And the idea that he would have to get rid of Heimdall, because Heimdall can see everything. That was an idea - and probably the Warriors Three, to discount them... which is probably an answer to a question I've been asked a few times today: Sif was probably banished. She's off somewhere.

Out of universe:

Yahoo Entertainment caught up with the actress, who currently stars in the NBC show Blindspot, about why she didn’t return for the blockbuster film.

“I was asked, but the timing of when they were going to shoot and when Blindspot was gonna shoot — it was pretty much the same time,” she told Yahoo on Friday. “So there was a conflict there.”

Alexander continued, “I was hoping for more of a notice from [the studio] so I could make it work, but it was a short notice thing. They called and said, ‘Hey, by the way, would you come do this?’ I said there is no way I can make that work that fast.”

Still, Alexander says she “tried,” noting, “It couldn’t happen. They were on a different continent!” Thor: Ragnarok was filmed in Australia.

“So it was sad,” she admitted. “I was bummed about it.”

    "I was bummed about it" Probably for the best, given what happened to the others would probably have happened to her character too.. – Joel Roberts Nov 14 '17 at 2:36
