** During the highway battle between the Winter Soldier and Cap, the villain does a 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 being cast as the antagonist is an ironic allusion to him portraying the protagonist in ''Film/ThreeDaysOfTheCondor'', a film which has undisputed influence on ''Captain America: The Winter Soldier''.

** 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.

** Robert Redford joining a superhero film is not the kind of thing one would generally expect from him. He also uncharacteristically [[spoiler: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 ''Film/ThreeDaysOfTheCondor'', in which Redford 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]].

** Steve states wryly that if he weren't a soldier, he could take up "Ultimate Fighting." In the BatmanColdOpen, Steve fights a character played by long-time [[[[MixedMartialArts Ultimate Fighting Championship]] welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre.

* 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]].

** 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.]]

* ColbertBump: The success of this film gave a major boost to Captain America's popularity. While his first two outings were well received, this film was what resulted in the character becoming one of the most popular characters in the MCU rivaling, and at times, surpassing Iron Man himself. Case in point: the poster for ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' had the character in the background behind all the other heroes while the poster for ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'' has him front and center.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Cleveland doubles for UsefulNotes/WashingtonDC You see a lot of Cleveland landmarks during the police chase that Fury is lured into early in the movie (even a directional sign for US 6 appears). Furthermore, there are a lot of tall skyscrapers seen during the police chase and in other parts of the movie. You will never find such buildings in real Washington, D.C. because the Height of Buildings Act of 1910 prevents any building in D.C. from being more than 20 feet taller than the width of the street that said building sits on. The buildings seen in the chases are much too tall for this city to actually be Washington, D.C.
