'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Gears Up for 'Thor 2' Crossover

The God of Thunder franchise is about to drop the hammer down on ABC. The network's popular freshman superhero drama, 'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' has decided to take advantage of 'Thor: The Dark World's theatrical release by airing its very own crossover episode that will pick up right where the movie will leave off.

The episode, titled 'The Well,' is scheduled for a Nov. 19 release — just 11 days after 'Thor 2' hits theaters — and will address a couple of the issues the film will leave in its wake. So if you're unable to make it to 'Thor 2' by then and are fearful of spoilers, you may want to steer clear of the episode, at least until you're all caught up.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the official description of the 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' episode 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.” Who they're referring to remains unclear, but it sounds like it could have a serious impact on the show itself.

But don't be expecting Chris Hemsworth or anyone else from the 'Thor 2' cast to be stopping by for a little chat. They're all completely off the small screen grid, at least for now. I know...we're all bummed about it too. (Not even another brief cameo of Samuel L. Jackson? Please?)

What do you think of this crossover idea? Will the film's affiliation with the show make you more or less likely to tune in? Sound off on your thoughts in the comments below!

'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' resumes its 22-episode run on Tuesday, Nov. 5.

As I always intended to see both even before this it won't change my mind. Marvel's big attraction for me was always the little tidbits that slipped into my regular titles about other events in the universe. It made the story more real for me.

It's a great show, actually.  And this is awesome news.

Just not that good a show. Arrow has a much better take on the superhero world that this does. Misfits and Alphas are far more integrated that this has been so far. I keep waiting for the bang but always get the fizzle.

I love the idea, though 11 days after release is not a very large window...

But like ab said, if they keep the continuity right this is gonna be great!

After seeing the film, this makes sense to clear up their lack of presence in the movie.

If they're going to take the Marvel "Universe" idea seriously, they need to have any future movies in continuity, so this is a really good idea.
