‘Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD’ Doing Crossover Episode With ‘Thor: The Dark World’
In one of the most ambitious crossover events in television history, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be depicting the aftermath of a major action blockbuster while it’s still in theaters.
Thor: The Dark World will release on Nov. 8, and the film will be followed by a crossover episode with Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on Nov. 19. Titled “The Well,” the episode will continue where the film left off: “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.”
The episode will be directed by sci-fi TV legend Jonathan Frakes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and will feature a ton of guest stars, although none from the blockbuster action movie. The casting list is as follows: “Peter MacNicol as Professor Elliot Randolph, Michael Graziadei as Jakob Nystrom, Erin Way as Petra Larsen, Toby Wilson as Neils, Alex Neustaedter as Maynard and Sylvia Brindis as Elena.”
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs Tuesdays at 8:00 PM ET on ABC. In the meantime, check out my exclusive interview with Thor: The Dark World star Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.
