* 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]].

** 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.

** 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.

** 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.

* TorchTheFranchiseAndRun: The movie has a rare case enforced by the higher-ups: once the writers expressed interest in a conspiracy thriller, the president of Marvel Studios suggested them to take down S.H.I.E.L.D. and have it fight Cap. (while [[Series/AgentsOfSHIELD a S.H.I.E.L.D.-focused spin-off]] was running, no less!)

** 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.

** One scene reveals a pragmatic reason why Steve ditches the SHIELD 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.]]

** 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 70's 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]]
* ProductionPosse: Danny Pudi, who stars in the Russo brothers-directed ''Series/{{Community}}'', cameos as a SHIELD technician. The firm who did all the openings for the Russos' shows was responsible for the end credits. Alison Brie was also in the mix to play Agent 13.
* 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.

* StuntCasting: Batroc's moves are pretty convincing - and that's probably because his actor George 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]].

-->'''Joe Russo:''' What it was going to be, we were trying to complicate the relationship between Cap and his S.H.I.E.L.D agent friends. If Hawkeye got a call from S.H.I.E.L.D saying Captain America is a fugitive, would he listen to that call or not listen to that call? That sequence actually was heartbreaking for us to cut it. I think it ultimately might have been a conflict with Rennerís schedule. But there was a great sequence where Hawkeye was chasing Cap through Washington D.C. there was an awesome sequence where they confronted each other in a ravine on the outskirts of D.C. and Hawkeye was shooting a series of arrows closing in on Cap, Cap closing in on him. And then Cap took him down and he realized for the first time that Hawkeye was trying to trick S.H.I.E.L.D, where he whispered something into Capís ear that Cap had a tracker on his suit and to punch Hawkeye to make it look real, because there was a Quinjet hovering above where they were watching the feedback back at S.H.I.E.L.D.

** Baron von Strucker was going to be the BigBad of the film, rather than [[spoiler: Alexander Pierce]]. Clay Quartermain was also planned to appear, possibly taking Sitwell's place.
