Marvel has officially announced that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be airing a crossover with the newly released Thor: The Dark World. Already released in several international markets such as the UK and Australia, Thor: The Dark World is set to be released this coming week in the US (November 8).
The November 19th episode of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be titled “The Well” and 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 guest star 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. It will be directed by Jonathan Frakes (Star Trek: The Next Generation).
Although I wouldn’t hold your breath expecting to see any of the stars from the movie appearing in the episode, it will be great to see these two shows tied so closely together.
