Agents Of SHIELD to cross over with Thor: The Dark World

A forthcoming episode of Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. is picking up where Thor: The Dark World left off...

When Agents of SHIELD was first announced, the possibility of crossovers with Marvel's big-screen world was a tantalising prospect for many. We've already had one cameo from a Marvel movie character, and now a forthcoming episode of the ABC show is set to pick up where the most recent Marvel offering, Thor: The Dark World, left off.

Marvel completists will want to make sure they've seen Alan Taylor's Thor sequel before sitting down to watch the November the 19th episode of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. (due to air on Channel Four in the UK on Friday the 22nd), which is set "in the aftermath of the events chronicled in the feature film Marvel's Thor: The Dark World". In the episode, "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.”

As yet, no Thor: The Dark World cameos have been announced for the episode, but let's hope Marvel has a surprise or two up its sleeve...

I wondered when I saw it whether the second post-credits scene of Thor:TDW would lead into an Agents of Shield episode. Seems like it might well do. The tie-up might also explain why there was a gap this week?

Stephen W - no the gap across the schedules for a lot of networks and shows was caused by the World Series being on - either channels were showing it or not willing to schedule against it.

I want the episode to be the agents have to capture the Jotunhiem Beast thats running around chasing birds.

I haven't really got into Agents of SHIELD. It's fine, but it's not good enough to pull me back every week.

I was actually thinking at the time it would have been brilliant at the end of that scene to see Coulson running after it "don't worry, I got this"

Well, this is cool and all, but a bit of a bummer for the fans who don't live in a country where Agents of SHIELD is broadcasted.

Ah yes, the "World" series. How quaint.

Damnit, I have to watch Thor before this Friday!
