WARNING! MAJOR SPOILERS! This article doesn’t just talk about what to expect with the post-credits scene of Captain America: The Winder Soldier, it also gives away a bit about how the movie gets to that point. If you want to be surprised, avoid reading this. If you don’t give a crap, then by all means continue.
According to someone over at BrainFreeze.be, there are two major scenes that help to set up where the Marvel universe will be going in the future. The first is before the credits begin to role:
“After the fall of both S.H.I.E.L.D. & HYDRA we see Baron Von Strucker (Thomas Kretschmann) in his underground lair. Loki’s scepter can be seen here, as well as 2 special prisoners: the “twins”. These are of course Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). Quicksilver is bouncing from one end in his cell to another while Scarlet Witch is stacking some building blocks with her mind. Watching them, Von Strucker announces “The Age of Miracles” is upon us. And with that we learn the new name for mutants in the Marvel movieverse.”
The second is, of course, the post-credits scene:
“The Winter Soldier is visiting the Captain America exhibit in the Smithsonian museum. Here he finds the information on James Buchanan “Bucky” Barnes, his real name. It appears the Winter Soldier now knows who he really was and remembers that Captain America spoke the truth about him.”
So there you have it. You have now been spoiled as to the way the movie will turn out. Bye-bye S.H.I.E.L.D. and bye-bye H.Y.D.R.A. and hello to Von Strucker as he takes his place as one of the next big Marvel movie villains. Hope you aren’t too traumatized, folks. Just remember that life goes on and Phase 3 will be bringing us new faces.
Thanks (?) to the BrainFreeze folks for the spoilers.
