Captain America: The Winter Soldier has yet to have a red carpet premiere, and already it seems like the end credit scene has been leaked. The release is just less than a month away for the U.S. moviegoers while it’s just over two weeks for the UK release. It will be perilous times for those surfing the web for information but do not want to read spoilers.
Well, that journey through spoiler territory starts today, with news of the end credit scenes being leaked in the second Captain America movie.
Warning, Spoilers Ahead
If you are here, that means you are willing to read the end credit scenes and be spoiled. But if you clicked here by accident, proceed no further. This is your last chance to back away.
Okay, I gave you the chance to back away. Now on to the spoilers. But first a quote from the book, The Divine Comedy (Inferno),
Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch’entrate.

After the fall of both SHIELD and HYDRA we see Baron Von Strucker (Thomas Kretschmann) in his underground laboratory. His men have the scepter of Loki got hold of, as well as two special prisoners. None other than Pietro Maximoff / Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). The superfast Quicksilver bounces from one side of his cell to another, while Scarlet Witch few blocks stacks with her thoughts. Von Strucker proclaims that “The Age of Miracles” is near. And thus we immediately know how mutants can be mentioned in the Marvel movie universe.
We see the Winter Soldier incognito Captain America-exhibit at the Smithsonian Museum. Here he encounters the information about James Buchanan “Bucky” Barnes. It plays threatening music, but this Winter Soldier seems indeed to have who he really is and that Captain America was telling the truth in their confrontations throughout the film.
For the first scene, if what the writer of the article says is true then we might see HYDRA be part of the Agents of Shield TV show. And based on the first scene the “twins” will be part of the future in the Marvel Film Universe. But to what capacity? We don’t know yet.
And using “The Age of Miracles” line may be another way of using the word mutants, since they technically cannot say it in their movies. So I assume they will use “Miracle Children” or “Gifted Children” or something to that extent.
The second scene looks like a foundation for a new character (possibly his own movie?). So this could be a layout of a foundation for a Winter Soldier spin-off movie, or if anything happens to Captain America, they could have a person to fill in his shoes, just as they did in the comic books. But this is just my speculations.
Now that you know what is in the end credits. Tell us what you think about it.
