THOR: THE DARK WORLD Will Continue on 11-19’s Episode of AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.

It looks like the first crossover between Marvel’s TV show and feature film divisions is about to become a reality. Just in time for sweeps, the November 19th episode of ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is set to deal directly with the aftermath of Thor: The Dark World, picking up where the feature film leaves off. In an effort to make the whole thing even geekier, Star Trek alum Jonathan Frakes is directing the episode. The official logline for “The Well” is as follows:

“In the aftermath of the events chronicled in the feature film Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World, Coulson and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. pick up the pieces–one of which threatens to destroy a member of the team.”

News of this Marvel crossover was announced over at EW, which notes that while a number of guest stars are slated for “The Well,” no one from Thor: The Dark World is currently poised to show up. That’s not to say that there absolutely won’t be a Chris Hemsworth or Samuel L. Jackson cameo (the latter has already popped up on S.H.I.E.L.D.), but nothing else has been announced. Those Marvel folks are keen on secrecy, you know. 

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. could use the boost from a feature film tie-in, as the show’s ratings have been steadily declining since its initial debut and critics haven’t exactly been kind to the show thus far. With the promise of an epilogue of sorts to Thor 2, “The Well” is sure to bring in a large audience, and I doubt this will be the last time we’ll see a TV show crossover with the film world. April’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier deals heavily with the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we got another tie-in episode around that time.

      I see what they did there… going back to “The Well”

    • Hopefully Frakes can make it an episode worth watching.
