We are now less than a month away from the release of Joe and Anthony Russo's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but there are some fans out there who just can't take the wait anymore. They want to know not only every detail of what happens in the Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel, but even what happens after it's over. While we can't help you on the former, we can now provide for the latter, as descriptions of the post-credits sequences from the film have leaked online.
SPOILER WARNING: If you are doing your best to avoid any and all Captain America: The Winter Soldier-related spoilers, I would highly recommend clicking away now. I'm not sure how you got this far into the article anyway, but you can look at this as a Cinema Blend courtesy.
Just like both The Avengers and Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is yet another Marvel Studios film with not one, but two post-credits sequences. According to Comic Book Movie's source, the first begins with Baron Von Struker (Thomas Kretschmann) walking into an underground lair where he is keeping two recognizable characters hostage: Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). Demonstrating their special gifts, Quicksilver is bouncing all around his cell at lightning speed, while Scarlet Witch is putting together building blocks with her mind. Von Struker then reveals what may be the replacement word for "Mutant" in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: "Miracles."
The second scene, which is after the credits have completed, is more closely tied to the actual plot of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The sequence has the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) walking into the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C. Going up to an exhibit dedicated to Captain America, he sees a photo and the name "Bucky Barnes" and comes to a realization. If you are really dead-set on ruining the next Marvel movie for yourself you can head over to Comic Book Movie for the full context of these scenes.
When you think about it, revealing Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch is a pretty awesome and smart move on Marvel's part. While we originally expected that we wouldn't get to see them for the first time until Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron, having them featured here will not only help audiences familiarize themselves with the characters, but give Marvel the jump on 20th Century Fox, who will be using the same pair of superheroes in the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past. Captain America will be in theaters on April 4th, while the X-Men sequel won't be here until May 23rd.
While it's hard to put all the pieces together without knowing exactly what happens in the Captain America sequel, do you think that these post-credits sequences are exciting, or would have rather seen them do something else? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
