If you’ve seen Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier then hopefully you stayed to the end to watch the post-credit scene. It’s a Marvel movie people, by now you should know to stay to the end!

Here’s what happened after the credits. Take note, spoilers ahead:

“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.” As for 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.”  – Comicbookmovie


Thomas Kretschmann was cast as the evil Baron Wolfgang von Strucker in the beginning of the year in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron. We also knew that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will be in Avengers 2. So this end-credit scene can be seen as an introduction to Avengers 2.

Avengers 2 is shaping up to be a massive movie, with Hydra still being there under Baron Wolgang, and Ultron being the main threats.
