Disney CEO affirms 'Captain America 2' does connect to 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'

According to ComicBook.com on Feb. 5, in a webcast entailing Disney's first quarter fiscal year of their earnings report, the CEO of Disney confirmed that "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" will tie into "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." Last year, it was only the "Captain America 2" sequel that had been reported as such, but now both are involved.

CEO Iger did say he saw the movie quite a few times and touts that even for a non-branded film, the U.S. seems to speak out loudly about it.

“I've really been impressed with the early buzz that we’re seeing for the Marvel films,” said Iger. “Captain America is just huge. Now, we’re already in the marketplace with some marketing, but it’s been relatively limited. We had a pre-game for instance in the Super Bowl. And yet the interest in the Captain America film, which comes out April 4 here in the states, seems much louder than it would be for what I would call a non-branded film".

Also slated for March is a tie-in comic book entitled "Captain America: Homecoming". It entails Steve Rogers taking a tour in his home town of Brooklyn for nostalgic purposes when he and the Black Widow encounter a terrorist attack. This particular event takes place in a time period between "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and "The Avengers: Age of Ultron".

For those interested in an ongoing plot synopsis that ties into "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.", stay tuned every Tuesday night on ABC at 8 p.m. EST.
