Characters introduced in ABC’s “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” will be held hostage in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”
While fans of the ABC series will have to wait until next week for the crossover episode executive producer Jeph Loeb teased at PaleyFest, a new clip from the “Captain America” sequel (above) shows Agent Jasper Sitwell (Maximiliano Hernández) sitting among others patiently waiting to be rescued from criminals hoping to extort money from the super secret organization.
On Tuesday’s episode of “SHIELD,” titled “End of the Beginning,” Sitwell was called away for some kind of incident at sea.
“I guess I got a boat to catch,” Sitwell says. “Good luck, Agent Coulson.”
As it turns out, Sitwell is in need of luck when he’s captured alongside a number of other SHIELD agents. Fortunately for them, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) are leading the rescue team.
Much like Marvel did when “Thor: The Dark World” hit theaters last fall, a “Captain America” crossover episode will air on ABC after the movie hits theaters this weekend. The “Agents of SHIELD” had to deal with the aftermath of destruction audiences witnessed in “Thor,” but Loeb was tight-lipped about any details as to how his show will relate to Marvel’s latest blockbuster.
“It makes sense,” Loeb teased. “It would certainly not surprise anyone if things did happen from the movie that we’re mentioning on the show that we’re talking about.”
Here’s the promo for next week’s episode, “Turn, Turn, Turn.”
