After the Thor: The Dark World tie-in, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer Jed Whedon discusses the likelihood of a similar episode connecting Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Last night's episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was surprisingly good; and this is coming from someone that's been incredibly frustrated with the show since the pilot episode. However, the flaunted tie-in with Thor: The Dark World was extremely superficial and really had nothing to do with the episode. Ahead of the tie-in ep airing on ABC, executive producer Jed Whedon spoke with TV Guide about the possibility of a similar connection with the Russo Bros.' Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Said Whedon, "We're trying to flesh out the world. The Marvel brand carries with it a lot of familiar faces. We're trying to flesh out the world of S.H.I.E.L.D. with the established characters and the characters we're introducing to build out the larger organization that we operate in." Whedon then got a little more specific about a tie-in with The Winter Soldier adding, "Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) is in that one, and S.H.I.E.L.D. makes an appearance, so we will definitely try to tee-up some stuff and probably play a little bit of the fallout from that film. We're hoping to do some cool stuff."

Whedon also teased another cameo on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but not from a Marvel superhero but from the living legend who helped create the company. "I would say there's a strong chance [of Stan Lee showing up]," was all Whedon would say on the matter.

It was previously reported that the very last episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would connect to Captain America: The Winter Soldier but the accuracy of that information is unclear. Depending on how ABC makes its schedule, the final episode could air before or after Captain America: The Winter Soldier is released here in the US. The tie-in could also come in season 2.
