Trivia: The film producers actually put a lot of thought into Steve's notebook of things to catch up on. The producers thought it would have been a good idea to show Steve's notebook as a way to see that Steve Rogers is a man out of time. Since the idea is that Captain America can feel like he's a hero, not just for America, but the whole world, the producers set up an internet campaign from each different territory to weigh in on the different things Steve would have in his notebook. The campaign would work as the people would have to vote on 20 things Steve could have missed in the last 70 years. The top 5 vote getters from each country ended up getting implemented into each region's version of the film. The bottom 5 options (Thai food, Star Wars/Trek, Nirvana (band), Rocky (Rocky II?) and the Troubleman soundtrack) remained in each version of the film.
Trivia: Romanoff mentions Operation Paperclip at one point, calling it a Shield operation. In reality, it was a large operation conducted by the American government, in which hundreds of Nazi scientists were recruited. One of the most famous subjects was Werner Von Braun, who designed the V2, but went on to make the Saturn V rocket for the Apollo program.
Trivia: Danny Pudi has a small cameo as the techie who lets Captain America into the communications room near the end of the film. Pudi is one of the stars of the cult TV-series "Community." Directors Joe and Anthony Russo, in addition to directing this film, also directed a number of episodes of "Community."
Trivia: When Jasper Sitwell was being interrogated by Captain America, The Falcon and Black Widow, he mentions a couple of people Hydra is targeting. One in particular is a certain neurosurgeon named Stephen Strange. Otherwise known as Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange, a future member of The Avengers who will have his own film in Phase 3 of the MCU.
Trivia: At the hijacked ship, Captain America fights the enemy leader, Batroc, who is loosely based on the comic villain, Batroc the Leaper. The movie Batroc shares the same colour scheme, is also French, but unlike the cartoon version, does mixed martial arts (with a little jumping).
