The nerd is strong with this one.
Thor: The Dark World comes out in the United States on November 8th. And on November 19th, after everyone’s had a chance to see it (maybe a few times), Agents of SHIELD will pick up where the film left off for its very first crossover episode.
Here’s the official description of the episode, titled “The Well” (don’t worry, nothing looks spoiler-y):
“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.”
No characters or actors from the Thor movies will make an appearance in the episode, but there will still be several guest stars, among them Peter MacNicol (Renfield!), Erin Way (hey there, Kat from Alphas!), and Michael Graziadei (American Horror Story: Murder House’s Travis).
And, as mentioned, the episode will be directed by Jonathan Frakes, who’ll get to do the Riker lean all over the set if he so chooses.
Personally, I haven’t been watching Agents of SHIELD. I was going to, but then I was busy when the pilot aired and all the scuttlebutt I’ve heard has amounted to “meh.” I’ll watch it if I hear it gets good, but until then there are just too many movies and shows on my list. But this news is certainly intriguing, though I’m guessing I’ll be more intrigued after I actually get to see Thor: The Dark World.
Darn you, countries where it’s already been released. Darn yooooouuuuu!
