We've been wondering just how Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would connect to the Marvel cinematic universe, and it looks like one of those connections is imminent. The events of an upcoming episode of the show will immediately follow the action of Thor: The Dark World.

EW reports that November 19th episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., "The Well," will pick up where the new Thor movie drops off:

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 exciting news? Commander Riker himself, Jonathan Frakes will be directing the episode. This isn't Frakes' first trip to down Joss Whedon lane; he also directed the Sierra-centric episode of Dollhouse, "Belonging."

See this is why I don't understand people bitching about the references to the Avengers cycle of movies - the show is obviously a PART of that universe, and intended to kind of flesh it out, why wouldn't they bring up the things that happen during the films? They're usually pretty big events. I really don't think they're afraid people will forget that a show with both Marvel and SHIELD in the title is connected to those films, I think they want a level of consistent bleed over so they CAN do crossover episodes without them seeming as if they come out of nowhere. It sets the tone.

Then again I don't get a lot of the complaints about the show. The only time genre fans complain more than when a new show is, well new, is when it get's cancelled. There's a trend here people.
