The release of Captain America: Winter Soldier is less than a month away, and the press screenings have officially begun. Cue the spoilers.

Potentially huge spoilers ahead for Captain America: Winter Soldier!

With screenings now underway, it’s only a matter of time until all the juicy details leak out. The folks at BrainFreeze.be claim to have seen the latest Marvel sequel, and dropped a mountain of alleged spoilers.

First up: The film will reportedly introduce Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) late in its run, either at the end or in the first of two stinger scenes. They’ll apparently be locked up in a bunker by Baron Von Strucker, and this will also introduce the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of mutants via “The Age of Miracles.” Of course, they can’t use the word "mutants," because those rights are with X-Men over at 20th Century Fox:

“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.”

Next up, the post-credit stinger, and this one is a little more interesting. Instead of teasing a future film (unless the Winter Soldier is sticking around), the scene will apparently follow the Winter Soldier as he visits the Smithsonian to see the Captain America exhibit, where he finally sees the truth about his former identity:

“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.”

Though the timeline fits for details to start leaking out right about now, of course take this one with a grain of salt for the time being. But if these leaks are true, what do you think?
