AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. to Feature THOR 2 Crossover

On Friday, it’s Hammer Time once more, as Norse mythology nerds and Tumblr-addicted Loki fans will at long last be able to return to Asgard in Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World. The film, which as you’ll see in my review later this week is quite enjoyable, isn’t where the Nine Realms-spanning fun stops though. Marvel revealed that on the November 19th episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the sweeps week story line will intersect with the ending of Thor: The Dark World.

Just what kind of intersection are we talking about? According to the official Marvel description, “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, titled “The Well”, is directed by Star Trek actor/NCIS: Los Angeles director Jonathan Frakes and will hopefully be a shot in the arm for the series and help it feel more directly connected.

In a recap for The Hollywood Reporter, Nick Fury co-creator Jim Steranko offered this appraisal of the series thus far: “The sometimes-manic, sometimes-plodding quality of the previous eps has settled into a pragmatic, if sometimes predictable comfort zone.”

What do you think? Do you agree with Jim Steranko? Does the prospect of a Thor 2 crossover make you want to throw down your mug and shout, “Another!”? Let us know in the comments below or take the Bifrost and hit me up on Twitter!

    The Devoted Fan

    Do think you are the devoted fan of Thor? If yes, it is important to know who is devoted fan. Devoted Fan will never just watch a show. Oh no, He will devour it. After he is finished watching, he will go online and read up on the actors and the producers and indulge in heated debates with the fandom via livejournal or tumblr. He might produce fanart or fanfiction or fanvideos to express his love for the show and everything associated with it. He will coin adorable terms that define his status as a fan (Whovian or Gleek) and wear the label proudly. He is the true face of loyalty. Now what you say? Are you?

    Though it’d be awesome if they brought in Stark or Romanov in for an episode, like they did with Director Fury. That was awesome.

    Overall, I’ve enjoyed the show immensely. I’m not a comic book reader, so I’m not nitpicking everything intensely, like I’ve heard of others doing.

    I actually really enjoy the series “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” I think the cast is great, the stories are fun, and it has me invested. They should have made it a comic series, even before the TV show. I can see it now. “Phil Coulson, Agent Of Shield”. Give it the feel of the old Steranko comics, with Phil’s love of the classic era. It could work.
