He doesn't rip it off, it falls off when the cab rolls.
** The iconic shield is foreshadowed twice. First, when Steve picks up a trashcan lid to defend himself from a bully. Later, when he rips off the door of a taxicab to defend himself from a Nazi assassin. (The door reads "Lucky Star Cabs", and it has a big star on it.) Also, the shield's classic design is called forward at the end of the USO stage tour montage, as we see the background behind Steve and the performers with a familiar red-white-red-blue pattern. The first one is then [[CallBack called back]] to when a kid uses a decorated trashcan lid as his shield in a game.

*** Justified. Vibranium earns its name from interacting with soundwaves, absorbing or magnifying them depending on use.

* UndyingLoyalty: The members of Hydra are suicidally loyal to the Red Skull, even though he does very little to disguise that he is a BadBoss who cares nothing for any of them.

** Montgomery Falsworth's appearance (at least in the scene depicted in the trailer) owes a lot to Howling Commandos Percy Pinkerton, while his name comes from the UsefulNotes/WorldWarI-era hero Union Jack, who is basically the British Captain America (sans superhuman powers) and thus wears a Union Jack uniform. While the movie Falsworth isn't a superhero and doesn't wear a uniform, he wears a pair of crossed belts over his battle dress to carry grenades, which -- when combined with flaps of his battle dress' breast pocket -- resembles the bars on the Union Jack.

* CueCard: Cap uses them during his first USO show, taped to the back of his shield so he can read them easily. As he settles into the role, he is able to read the lines by rote and no longer needs the cards.

** During the serum administration, several technicians are wearing modern (thin, loose-fitting, and white) latex gloves instead of the thick, black rubber gloves that would more likely have been used at the time.

** Averted example: Steve addresses his drill sergeant as "Sir" and this is correct for that era in the US Army and is still used by the US Marines. ** Averted again when, the first thing that Rogers does when he returns to the base camp is to voluntarily submit himself for discipline. Of course, who's going to court-martial someone who singlehandedly rescued 400 [=POWs=]?
