‘Avengers 2′ Director Joss Whedon Helmed a Certain ‘Captain America 2′ Post-Credits Scene

Captain America 2 Post-Credits Scene Avengers 2
Marvel Studios

The Avengers‘ (and now ‘Avengers 2‘) director Joss Whedon has been involved with many aspects of the overarching Marvel Cinematic Universe in making sure all the standalone movies jive with what he has in the works for the major team-ups. For ‘Captain America 2,’ though it was pretty much assumed, Whedon has been confirmed to have directed one of the post-credits scenes, which should already tell you something …

In an interview with Collider, Marvel Studios President and ‘Captain America 2′ producer Kevin Feige confirmed that Whedon did in fact direct one of the post-credits scenes. This news by itself shouldn’t come as a complete shock, as Whedon previously gave us the stinger at the end of the first ‘Thor‘ that featured Samuel L. Jackson‘s Nick Fury bring back the tesseract, the ‘Avengers’ post-credits scene introducing Thanos, and he was involved in the filming for ‘Thor: The Dark World‘ in helping connect the story to the grander MCU plot. So why should this matter to you?

[SPOILER WARNING]

Well, surprise, surprise, the scene in question ties into ‘The Avengers 2′ (officially titled ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron). To be more specific, sources tell us that Thomas Kretschmann, who will play Baron von Strucker in ‘The Avengers 2,’ makes his first appearance as the villain, along with — wait for it — Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver and his ‘Godzilla’ co-star Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch. If that doesn’t get you excited to see Cap back in action, we don’t know what will.

[END OF SPOILERS]

Joe and Anthony Russo direct ‘Captain America 2′ (officially titled ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’), which hits theaters on April 4 and is said to be the Marvel Phase 2 film with the most tie-in material to ‘The Avengers 2,’ which we’ll have to wait until May 1, 2015 to see. That said, ABC will air a Marvel TV special this coming Tuesday, March 18 at 8 p.m. EST that will premiere the first footage from ‘The Avengers 2,’ which will either hold us over for the time being or make the wait till 2015 that more difficult.
