* CastTheExpert: Batroc's moves are pretty convincing -- and that's probably because his actor Georges St-Pierre is one of the most respected names in MMA, three time welterweight champion of the UFC, and one of the top-ranked fighters in the [[BuffySpeak world, like ever]].

* MissingTrailerScene:
** The TV spots show a scene where Steve tells Sam that Natasha can be dramatic.
** The film ends with Sam asking Steve when do they start searching for Bucky. The TV spots included an extra line where Steve responds "We just did."

** A Hydra is generally depicted as a cross between a snake and a dragon. A helicarrier is (essentially) a plane. Once again, [[{{SnakesOnAPlane}} Samuel L. Jackson is trying to get those motherfucking snakes off his motherfucking plane.]]

** Creator/AnnaKendrick, Felicity Jones, and Creator/ElizabethOlsen were considered to play Sharon Carter. Interestingly Elizabeth Olsen would go on to play Scarlet Witch in Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron

** Black Widow's quip [[note]]"I'm sorry, did I step on your moment?"[[/note]] to [[spoiler:Alexander Pierce]] seems to have been [[Film/PulpFiction borrowed]] from [[Creator/SamuelLJackson her superior]].
** The epitaph on [[spoiler: Nick Fury's]] headstone is inscribed with [[spoiler: the Bible verse [[Film/PulpFiction Ezekiel 25:17]]]].
** Steve replies to a joking jab at his [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld age]] by Natasha [[note]]"Hey fellas, either one of you know where the Smithsonian is? I'm here to pick up a fossil."[[/note]] with a sarcastic [[Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld "That's hilarious."]]
** One of the targets is [[Film/FantasticFour2005 the Baxter Building.]] Good thing the [[Creator/ChrisEvans Human Torch]] was busy playing at Cap.
** Pierce's refrigerator prominently featured a jar of [[Film/ButchCassidyAndTheSundanceKid Newman's Own Spaghetti Sauce.]] Creator/PaulNewman and Creator/RobertRedford were famous co-stars and friends, collaborating in several film classics such as ''Film/TheSting'' and ''Film/ButchCassidyAndTheSundanceKid''.

** The Watergate Hotel is visible outside Pierce's office. Again, Robert Redford starred in the movie version of the ''All The President's Men'', about the Watergate scandal.
** Robert Redford being cast as the antagonist is an ironic allusion to him portraying the protagonist in ''Film/ThreeDaysOfTheCondor'', a film which influence on ''Captain America: The Winter Soldier'' is undisputed.
** Steven Culp plays a unnamed government official, likely a member of Congress, during a congressional hearing at the end of the film. He played fictional Speaker of the House Jeff Haffley on ''TV/TheWestWing''; perhaps they're even the same character.

** In addition to SoMyKidsCanWatch (see below), Robert Redford wanted to be in this movie so that he could play [[spoiler:a villain]], since he almost never gets cast as one. Another reason he's mentioned is that he's never been in such a special effects-heavy movie before.

** One of the first-revealed deleted scenes was a short, painful conversation between Natasha and Fury about his decision not to bring her in on his survival plan. Scarlett Johansson suggested it be cut because it disrupted the momentum of the film, and the basic gist of the scene is still conveyed without being needed to spell it out. Albeit, this scene also introduced the photo-veil, [[spoiler: the high tech mask that allow Natasha to impersonate the female councilwoman and enter the Triskelion]].
** One scene reveals a pragmatic reason why Steve ditches the S.H.I.E.L.D. version of the Captain America uniform, even towards the final confrontation (putting aside the symbolic reasons for using the WWII outfit). [[spoiler: After he escapes the assassination attempt in the Triskelion, HYDRA is able to track his location through a tracker installed in the suit. However, Steve appeared to know about it, and leaves it behind at a public gym for a set of sweats. The STRIKE team comes across it stuffed in someone's duffel bag.]]

** The dialogue between Pierce and Natasha about potentially [[spoiler:leaking her past alongside the entire S.H.I.E.L.D. database]] ran longer, with a mention that [[spoiler:Pierce isn't doing anything to stop it because HYDRA's existence being known to the public won't matter once the Helicarriers are fully operational.]]

* DoingItForTheArt: Besides playing a villain, Robert Redford reportedly wanted to experience the new style of film-making that utilised high technology to bring its characters to life.
** During the highway battle between the Winter Soldier and Cap, the villain does knife flip to try and catch Steve by surprise. Reportedly, during all the days before the scene was shot, Sebastian Stan was seen flipping a toy knife until he could perform the action effortlessly.

** Robert Redford joining a superhero film is not the kind of thing one would generally expect from him. [[spoiler: He also uncharacteristically plays the villain of the film]]. Heck, the directors have commented that, in an earlier age, the idea of Redford playing Captain America himself would not have been all that far-fetched. The directors' commentary notes that the style of the movie was inspired by '70s political thrillers, even referring to Redford's ''Film/ThreeDaysOfTheCondor'', who was the protagonist. In a way, ''The Winter Soldier'' is [[spoiler: Redford redoing the movie as the guy running a conspiracy instead of the agent being hunted, making this also an example of PlayingWithCharacterType]]

* PromotedFanboy: Anthony Mackie is a huge fan of the Falcon, and has gushed multiple times about how lucky he's been to get the role. He even expressed disappointment that his costume wasn't the character's classic red and white spandex. It's also heartwarming that one of the things he was emphatic about when joining the project was that he was playing Marvel's first African-American superhero.
* RealLifeRelative: The woman speaking at the counsel meeting Cap visits? That's [[http://marvelcinematicuniverse.wikia.com/wiki/Angela_Russo-Otstot the sister of the directors.]]

** Likewise, Creator/ChrisEvans and Creator/AnthonyMackie were both in the same movie previously, but never worked together. According to Evans, they later ran into each other at the library, struck up a conversation, and just clicked as friends, which probably lends a little verisimilitude to Steve's and Sam's first meeting, too.

* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Captain America finds a new trusty NCO in [[Creator/JeremyRenner Hawkeye's]] [[Film/TheHurtLocker old friend ]] [[Creator/AnthonyMackie Sgt. Sanborn]], who was also friends with [[Creator/HughJackman Wolverine]] in ''Film/RealSteel''.
** It seems [[Film/EightMile Clarence]] was so ashamed of his defeat by Eminem that he changed his name and joined the army!
** UFC fighter Georges St. Pierre decided to trade in his fighter's mitts for some acrobatics so he can fight Cap.
** [[Series/{{Revenge}} Emily Thorne]] joined S.H.I.E.L.D. and might be Peggy Carter's niece. One wonders if [[{{Everwood}} she's still together with Ephram]].
** Jack Rollings and Crossbones [[Film/ZeroDarkThirty killed Bin Laden]]. [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Starlord]] was there, too, but that's irrelevant.
** [[Series/{{Community}} Abed]] continues to have his own little side adventures being an employee of S.H.I.E.L.D.
** [[Series/OnceUponATime King George]] is a World Security Council member. Good to know [[Series/{{Lost}} he's not antagonizing Ben Linus]] any longer!
** [[Film/TheDarkKnight Lau]]/[[Series/{{Arrow}} Frank Chen]] switches comic book universes and appears as another WSU member.
** Grace and Film/TheHorseWhisperer have a tense reunion.
** Apparently, [[Series/{{NCIS}} the very first director of NCIS, Tom Morrow]], got promoted so far that he's now in the ''World Security Council''.
** [[Series/CallTheMidwife Sister Julienne]] is surprisingly powerful and kickass.
** In TheStinger, [[spoiler:[[Film/{{Downfall}} Hermann]] [[Creator/ThomasKretschmann Fegelein]] survived UsefulNotes/WorldWarII and becomes more dangerous than ever as Baron Wolfgang Von Strucker]].
* HeyItsThatVoice:
** The A.I. in Nick Fury's car is [[Franchise/StarCraft Jim Raynor]].
** And the narrator of the Smithsonian's Captain America Exhibit is Gary Sinise, best known for playing [[Film/ForrestGump Lt. Dan.]] Possibly also a ShoutOut to the fact that Sinise narrates Military recruitment commercials, and here he is talking up the greatest soldier in (MCU) history.
** The S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier launch tech that Rumlow threatens is [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra Desna]].
