Last night’s episode of ABC’s hit series Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. finally did what fans had been hoping would happen since the show premiered — crossover with the world of the movies. Last night’s episode featured a crossover wight he events that occurred in the film Thor: The Dark World and today we got confirmation from Jed Whedon that this sort of crossover will happen again for Marvel’s next big release.
According to an interview with Guide that Whedon gave, Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will feature a crossover with Captain America: Winter Soldier.
“We’re trying to flesh out the world. The Marvel brand carries with it a lot of familiar faces. We’re trying to flesh out the world of S.H.I.E.L.D. with the established characters and the characters we’re introducing to build out the larger organization that we operate in. Nick Fury [Samuel L. Jackson] is in that one, and S.H.I.E.L.D. makes an appearance, so we will definitely try to tee-up some stuff and probably play a little bit of the fallout from that film. We’re hoping to do some cool stuff.”
We’ve been hearing rumblings, specifically from ComicBook.com, that this sort of thing would happen. It’s not surprising as Marvel knows how to spread it’s brand across multiple mediums. The films and the television show are now starting to become even more intertwined which means we can expect an even deeper marvel experience than we once thought possible.
