Captain America: The First Avenger

Factual error: When the action moves to England after the failed award ceremony, the British Union Flag hanging from the wall is upside down. The broad white band should be at the top left (nearest the top of the flag pole).

Factual error: In the scenes set outside the Hydra bases, the tracked armoured personnel carriers seen are FV432s. These vehicles entered service with the British army in the 1960s, and thus were never even seen during WW2 when the film is set.

More quotes from Captain America: The First Avenger


Question: Before he was genetically altered and his real body was used, how did they get Chris Evans to look so scrawny?

Quantom X

Chosen answer: A couple of techniques were used. In most cases, Evans would film the scene normally, then the effects team would digitally shrink his character down to the smaller size. This would generally require some on-set adjustment to allow for eyelines - in some cases Evans would be physically lower than other actors, in others, they would look at his upper chest while he looked over their heads. In a few cases, actor Leander Deeny, who possessed the necessary scrawny physique, would film the scene, collaborating closely with Evans to ensure that the character's mannerisms remained the same. Deeny's features would then be digitally replaced with those of Chris Evans. Deeny appears briefly in the movie as the bartender in the pub Rogers visits to recruit his team.

Question: When Captain America is rescuing the POWs, he's asked if he can get them out and he replies, "No problem. I've knocked out Adolf Hitler 200 times". I found it odd that he gave such a specific number. Is it maybe a reference to something from the comics (not just the number of War Bond sales pitches he has given)?

Chosen answer: No, it was just the number of performances he's done. The number was specific simply because the line was funnier that way.

Question: What is the song that the Howling Commandos are singing in the pub scene?

Chosen answer: It's a drinking song from 1883 called "There's a Tavern in the Town."
