Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Trivia: SPOILER: At the end on Nick Fury's gravestone, under his name is the passage from Ezekiel 25:17: "The path of the righteous man is beset..." This was the start of a big monologue made famous by Samuel L Jackson in Pulp Fiction. (01:59:25)


Trivia: Spoiler: Brock Rumlow at the end of the film is in the hospital, badly burned. In the comics, this is how he becomes the villain Crossbones. He later appears as that character in Avengers: Age of Ultron. (01:57:20)


Trivia: When the helicarriers start their targeting for people and locations to destroy, for a brief moment you can see "Anthony Stark" shown in the fully repaired Stark Tower, now the Avengers Tower (it has the big Avengers A logo now). (01:49:05)


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. (00:02:30)

Casual Person

Trivia: When Rogers returns to his apartment and is told his stereo is on, the song that is playing on the turntable is the same song played at the end of Avengers: Endgame when he is dancing with Peggy Carter. (00:35:15)

Trivia: Director Joe Russo appears in the film as Dr. Fine, one of the S.H.I.E.L.D. doctors who operates on Nick Fury. In the credit, Russo uses the alias Gozie Agbo.


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). (00:03:45)

Keith Barak Chan

Trivia: Natasha has a small arrow on her necklace as a reference to Hawkeye.


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." (01:31:10)

Trivia: When Jasper Sitwell was being interrogated by Captain America, The Falcon and Black Widow, he mentions a couple of people Hydra is targeting.

Revealing mistake: When Cap is driving the blue Chevrolet Silverado with Black Widow, the gear shift is in the up locked position, not lower on the column, indicating the truck was towed in the scene. (00:54:45)
