Will the ability to tie into ongoing movie releases keep interest alive in Marvel's Agents of SHIELD? On November 19th, we'll find out whether or not Agents recieves a ratings spike from tying into Thor: The Dark World (which hits theaters here in America on November 8th).
So far, Agents of SHIELD has done alright for itself, but viewership dropped quite a bit after the premiere. The bad-guy of the week plot device hasn't proved overly entertaining for many, but it doesn't look like a formula they plan to change anytime soon. Tying into movie releases is definitely another way they can stir up interest, however if they do not make events that occur on the show feel like they actually matter in the marvel-verse it will be a moot point. At least with Commander Ryker at the helm, it's sure to be interesting.
