Details of 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier's two credits scenes have been revealed.
Following the format set by 2012's 'Avengers Assemble' and last year's 'Thor: The Dark World', the Cap sequel will have one scene halfway through its credits and one after they've finished rolling.
Be warned, the description of both scenes contains major spoilers.
The details come from Dutch comic site BrainFreeze.be, whose review has been partially translated below.
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 Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen).
The super-fast 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 are listed 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."

It was rumoured last month that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch would make their Marvel Cinematic Universe debuts in the post-credit sequence, and those rumours were absolutely spot on.
The main take away from the first scene is that HYDRA are back in force and are in possession of the mutant siblings. Due to Fox having the rights to the X-Men, Marvel cannot refer to the characters as mutants, so 'miracles' (if that's an accurate translation) could be one of the terms used instead.
It will also be good to see Thomas Kretschmann in action as Baron Von Strucker ahead of 'Age of Ultron', as well as Johnson and Olsen. Introducing three major characters a year in advance is a good move as it gets them into the public consciousness well in advance of next year's film.
It also - hilariously - means that Marvel's Quicksilver will be the first to appear on the big screen. Fox's own version of the character will appear in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' in May.
As for scene 2, the moment of realisation for The Winter Soldier could be a turning point for him as he discover he is in fact Captain America's friend Bucky Barnes. It could be taken as a sign that the character will become a force for good in future films.
