Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Hayley Atwell was aged using computer-generated imagery for her appearance as an elderly Peggy Carter, Anthony Russo commented that "all the old people have looked the same in movies since the 80s when you go down the make-up route." Joe Russo said: "We changed her face and her muscle structure and all of those things that change when you age".
  • Danny Pudi makes a cameo here in Shield. He had previously worked with the Russo Brothers on [Community]. His [Community] costar Jim Rash would later be put into the Russo Brother's film Captain America: Civil War. Pudi himself would also later make a small appearance on Star Trek Beyond, directed by another [Community] director, Justin Lin.
  • Robert Redford wanted to do the film because his grandchildren are fans of Marvel films and he wanted them to see him in one.
  • During filming, Sebastian Stan would walk around all day practicing his moves with a plastic knife because he wanted his movements to feel natural.
  • According to Chris Evans Steve Rogers continues his adjustment to the modern world, which began in The Avengers: "It's not so much about his shock with technology... It's more about the societal differences. He's gone from the 1940s to today; he comes from a world where people were a little more trusting, the threats not as deep. Now, it's harder to tell who's right and wrong. Actions you take to protect people from threats could compromise liberties and privacy. That's tough for Steve to swallow."
  • When asked why Iron Man, Bruce Banner, or any of the other Avengers weren't called to help Captain America or Black Widow in the film, the screen writers explained that the movie only takes place in about three days, therefore, the characters didn't have a chance to contact them.
  • Unlike other films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, "The Winter Soldier" minimizes the use of visual effects as much as possible. Anthony Mackie elaborated: "The Russos, what they did that was so great was, they wanted to stay with live action, which is a dying art form...If they could build it, they built it. If we could do it, we did it. They wanted to do as little CGI as possible. That's why the movie looks so great."
  • Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson wrote their own dialogue for several scenes they had together.
  • A deleted scene in The Avengers, of Steve learning what happened to his commandos, and to Peggy Carter ended up being cut out from that film, but is included in this film.
