** The boxy camera atop Zola's computer is a shout-out to his appearance in the comics, where the bodies of his drones have a similar piece of tech in place of a head; the projection of his face on an ageing green-screen CRT monitor is a more realistic translation of the other feature of his drones, with a screen set into their stomach.

** The shot of Pierce looking out at the Helicarriers as they [[spoiler: fire on Falcon]] was a shoutout to the Emperor observing the rebel fleet's attack in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''.
** Fury's "torch" looks a bit like a lightsaber and it's a lot more effective cutting through solid concrete than [[Film/ThePhantomMenace Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan's attempt to get through an equally thick metal door]].
* One for the comics was the reference to a certain Doctor Stephen Strange during [[spoiler: Sitwell's explanation of HYDRA'S plans]].

* When Cap boards the ''Lemurian Star'', he throws a knife through the hand of a pirate trying to sound the alarm. This might be a subtle reference to ''Film/StarshipTroopers'', where Career Sgt./Pvt. Zim tells the recruits that; "The enemy cannot press the button, if you disable their hand!" after piercing a recruits hand with a thrown knife as an example. The only difference is that the recruits hand sticks to the wall, the pirates does not.
