Fans of Marvel’s hit television show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have been waiting for a crossover cameo from one of the Marvel movie characters and those prayers have been answered — sort of. Marvel has announced that a key character from Thor and Captain America films will be appearing on the television show but it’s not who you think.
No, Thor or Captain American themselves aren’t making an appearance this season, but Agent Sitwell will be and that’s news fans are intrigued by. Agent Sitwell was most recently seen in the Iron Man 3 short film Item 47 and has been confirmed to be appearing in Captain America: Winter Soldier, which dropped it’s first trailer the other day.
Early on in the process of developing Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for ABC, Agent Sitwell was rumored to be a series regular and that still could be the case. But it looks like what is happening on the show right now is leading into Captain America: Winter Soldier which both bodes well for the chances of seeing Sitwell again and watching how the show makes itself crucially relevant to the Marvel movie cannon.
The debut of Agent Sitwell on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will take place on November 19th.
