What do you get when you combine Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. with Thor 2 in an episode directed by Star Trek The Next Generation star Jonathan Frakes? Well, we are all apparently going to find that out as Deadline is reporting that the hit ABC series will be crossing over with Thor 2 in an upcoming episode set to air in a few weeks time.
The episode will use events that happen in Thor 2 as major plot points, so it’s probably advisable that you see Thor 2 when it hits theaters on November 8th so you’re all filled in and caught up with the action.
It’s a brilliant move by Marvel to tie an episode of Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in with a hit movie that just hit theaters from the studio, and it opens the door for it to happen more moving forward.
While it was rumored that characters from Thor 2 could be making an appearance, Deadline points out that those hopes have already been dashed. No characters from the movie will appearing on the show but Marvel is making up for that by having vert an Star Trek actor and director Jonathan Frakes helm the episode.
All of this is likely going to come together in one of the best episodes we’ve seen of the show yet, which is saying a lot considering how well done the first season of the show has been so far.
Look for the Thor 2 crossover episode directed by Jonathan Frakes to premiere on November 19th.
