The post-credits sequence on Tuesday night's episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will apparently tie into the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which opened internationally this weekend to an impressive $75 million at the international box office and will be in U.S. cinemas on Friday.
That's strongly suggested, at least, by S.H.I.E.L.D. Executive Producer Maurissa Tancharoen.
If you know where to look, of course, spoilers (and even some bootleg copies) have already made their way across the pond...but we're assuming that since Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs in the U.S. first, this episode will be leading into, not coming out of, the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Tancharoen's tweet isn't exactly precise on the matter:
Your mission: Watch an all new #AgentsofSHIELD this Tues night.See #CaptainAmerica2 this weekend.Keep watching #AgentsofSHIELD till the end.

Previous post-credits sequences have featured the first televised appearances of Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Deathlok.
