While the connections between Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the multi-film Marvel universe franchises have already been demonstrated in the show, it was only a matter of time before the powers-that-be decided to make those links even stronger. It looks like we won’t have to wait too long either, because the latest skinny on S.H.I.E.L.D. is that a future episode will be directly continuing a storyline from Thor: The Dark World.
As the official description states:
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.
And while we almost certainly won’t be seeing Thor himself show up, it is nice that the Marvel crew is trying to integrate all the properties into a tighter net of super hero goodness. Of course, those of us that haven’t seen Thor: The Dark World might want to hurry it up, because the S.H.I.E.L.D. episode will be airing come November 19th.
Thanks to /film for the heads-up.
