    It was confirmed that she has A role. But we don't know what the role is.

    So we saw Alice Krige in the clips that surfaced online from SDDC
    She was analysing Jane Foster in Asgard. I guess she is an Asgardian

    I think she may turn out to be more. I mean, it seems weird to have one small role like that. She said in her role, she will be unrecognizable. Which leaves me scratching my head

    Perhaps
    she betrays the Asgaradians and helps Malekith enter Asgard

    Maybe. it's just..weird. I mean, why get someone like her for literally such a pointless scene, and the fact what she said, who knows?

    Off topic but this is the Trekkie in me, but I'd love to see Alice Krieg play the Borg Queen again in the new Star Trek films. Since it is an alternate reality the original crew can encounter them a lot earlier, maybe have it be something Q instigated because he was bored and wanted to sate his curiosity.

    I'm assuming you mean Star Trek and not Star Wars. I don't want to see them rehashing previous material for the next Star Trek movie. I hope they do something new.

    Some people aren't gifted with retaining brain cells once hitting a certain age, like, say forty going on forty one. I guess my age is starting to catch up with me and I get things that sound alike easily confused.

    For the record, we now know who Krige plays. Guess we were all wrong.

    According to the just-released novelization, she plays Eir, an Asgardian goddess of youth/medicine. Her only known role seems to be as Jane Foster's ob-gyn. Well, not literally, but she gives Jane some kind of Asgardian exam/X-ray that uncovers strange things inside her....we'll leave it at that.

    Funny thing, Eir never appeared in the 616 universe and ist taken straight out of the myth.

    Eir (also Iær, Aer) is mentioned once by Snorri and appears once in Svipdagsmál. Snorri tells us that she is “the best of healers”; in Svipdagsmál, she is one of the maidens on a mountain called “Lyfja” (“to heal through magic” - de Vries,Wörterbuch, p. 369 ), of which it is said that it “has long been a pleasure for the sick and wounded; every woman will become whole if she climbs it, though she has a grievous illness”. The other women also have names suggesting works of weal, such as “Hlíf” (“Protection”), “Blíð” (“Blithe”), and Fríð (“beautiful, peaceful”) and it is said of them that they offer help to those who sacrifice to them.
    According to de Vries (Wörterbuch, p. 97), Eir’s name is originally derived from words meaning “honour” or “worship” (related to modern German Ehre); it is lso seen as the Old Norse noun eir, “graciousness - mildness - help”. Related to it is the verb eira, “to care for; to help or please”. There is also a word eir meaning “copper”; though this word is not etymologically related to the goddess-name, the healing might of copper rings and bracelets has long been known in folk-medicine, so that this metal might well be thought of as particularly hers.

    If I'm not mistaken, Sigyn and Loki meet via while Sigyn is healing someone, or is learning Magic in the first Draft of the first movie.
    MAYBE Alice is Sigyn?

    Or maybe Sigyn was rewritten to be Eir for some reason....seems like they're too similar and would be redundant if there were two healer-goddess types in the story.

    Interestingly, I did find one very loose reference to Eir in Marvel online: Hela has a sword called Eir-Gram.

    That DOES sound interesting. Wonder if Hela uses Eir to power the Sword?

    Well I've seen the film so...and this isn't much in the way of a spoiler but..

    [BLACKOUT]She's only in the film for about 2 minutes. As mentioned she performs a medical scan of sorts on Jane. That's it.[/BLACKOUT]

    Resistence is futile, which is why it's making so much money.
