Re: Captain America 2: News and Speculation - Part 9
Doubt it. They've said AOS takes place after The Avengers, not too long. Extremis in AOS is still a largely unknown quantity, and Stark clearly hasn't revealed his "cure" for it yet. It's most likely concurrent with the events of IM3, not after it.
AOS hasn't really hinted at who's at the top of SHIELD right now --- could be Fury, could be Hill. If the eagle eyepatch teaser for tonight's episode reveals a Fury cameo, we'll probably know more about the linkage between CATWS, IM3, and AOS, and will have a better understanding of where the timeline is going, and where SHIELD is at in all this.
