Of course, the executive didn't reveal what this tie-in between both movies is, but Joss Whedon revealed last month that the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier affect what happen in Avengers: Age of Ultron. The studio is releasing Guardians of the Galaxy in August, though it isn't known if that will also have a direct link to Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Here's what Robert A. Iger had to say about the buzz swirling around Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
The CEO also confirmed that the Captain America: The Winter Soldier story line will spill over to ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., although no plot specifics were given for the future crossover episode. The ABC series previously expanded the story from last year's Thor: The Dark World in "The Well", which aired just two weeks after the movie debuted in theaters. While we'll have to wait on confirmation of when this Captain America: The Winter Soldier crossover will air, don't be surprised if it happens in mid-April, just after the movie debuts in theaters.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier was released April 4th, 2014 and stars Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Redford, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo. The film is directed by Anthony Russo, Joe Russo, Joss Whedon.
Avengers: Age of Ultron comes to theaters May 1st, 2015 and stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Elizabeth Olsen, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner. The film is directed by Joss Whedon.
