'Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' To Deal With Terrifying Threats From This World And 'Several Others'

A new roundtable interview with the cast of ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." aired as part of the network's "Fall Preview Special," featuring the cast giving just a teeny bit more insight into their characters and the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe. The biggest reveal had to be Clark Gregg saying that this S.H.I.E.L.D. task force plans to deal with threats from "this world and several others."

The fact that aliens play a big role in the MCU is no surprise; after all, all the Norse gods have been presented as quasi-sorta-aliens, the Chitauri made a mess of Manhattan in last year's "Marvel's the Avengers," and next year Marvel's cosmic characters will steal the spotlight in "Guardians of the Galaxy." But now it looks like "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." will also feature even more extraterrestrial shenanigans. We even see some alien evidence at a crime scene in some of the preview's new footage. You can check out the entire six minute preview clip after the jump!

While before it seemed like "S.H.I.E.L.D." was light years away from "Guardians of the Galaxy"—both literally and metaphorically—maybe there will be some crossover after all. "Guardians" will hit theaters just before "S.H.I.E.L.D.'s" second season debut, so maybe it'll be up to the ABC series to deal with the fallout from that film.
