Thanks to the keen eyes over at ComicBook.com, we may have the first bit of details regarding the post (or mid)-credits scene for this summer's Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It's no secret that there's a strong word-of-mouth from early screenings of the upcoming Marvel sequel, and it seems someone at Lainey Gossip was one of those lucky viewers. In a post covering yesterday's explosive theatrical trailer, the site first teases that "there’s a big reveal that general audiences won’t see coming," but then suggests "the thing that’s probably going to leave people talking the most is the post-credits stinger." (Spoiler warning) "They’re calling them “The Twins”, the brother-sister team of Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch, and they don’t look like any Marvel heroes we’ve met to date. Having seen them, I am really sad for Fox and the X-Men." Basically, Marvel Studios will get the jump on Fox's X-Men: Days of Future by introducing Wanda & Pietro Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen & Aaron Taylor-Johnson, in Captain America: The Winter Soldier before their full-fledged roles in The Avengers: Age of Ultron next year. What do you think?
After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy — the Winter Soldier.
