DOCTOR WHO and SHERLOCK executive producer Steven Moffat recently admitted that he would love for his two series to do a cross-over story – but also that it is unlikely to happen because he’s the only one who wants it to happen.
Look I’m going to come clean on this: I would. Go speak to Benedict Cumberbatch [Sherlock], Martin Freeman [Watson], [and producers] Mark Gatiss and Sue Vertue, okay? They’re all in the way. I’m not the killjoy, it’s that lot. It’s probably not going to happen.
According to Marvel Studios, Jaimie Alexander will appear as Sif later this season on AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Sif was last seen in Thor: The Dark World in movie theaters last fall.
Marvel Executive Director of TV Communications Arune Singh tweeted this from ABC’s presentation at the Television Critics Association meetings in Los Angeles Friday:
Jamie [sic] Alexander as Sif announced as guest star on #AgentsofSHIELD this season! #TCA14
Yes, Arune did misspell her name. No word yet on an airdate, the storyline or with whom she will interact, but this sounds pretty cool to me.
Attention, fans of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.! Get thee to a cinema forthwith to view Thor: The Dark World, which opens today — because the Nov. 19 episode of AoS is going to pick up on plot threads left over from the movie.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the AoS episode, called “The Well,” most likely will not feature any Thor cast members (barring a surprise cameo), but rather some “connective tissue” in the storyline.
Check out the official synopsis from ABC:
“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.”
Putting this together with what we’ve all seen in the various trailers, it looks like there will be lots of Asgardian/Elf technology expended in all the fighting, so Agent Phil Coulson’s team most likely comes across something dangerous in some wreckage while cleaning up after the battle.
With a lot of the film’s action set in Greenwich, England, it seems like a natural setup for a crossover with TORCHWOOD, doesn’t it? If only that reconstituted UK team was still in action, that is…
