- Unlike the other films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, “The Winter Soldier” minimizes the use of visual effects as much as possible. Anthony Mackie elaborated: “The Russos, what they did that was so great was, they wanted to stay with live-action, which is a dying art form…If they could build it, they built it. If we could do it, we did it. They wanted to do as little CGI as possible. That’s why the movie looks so great.”

- To prepare for the role of the Winter Soldier, Sebastian Stan went through five months of physical training and historical research: “I dove into the whole Cold War history: I looked at the KGB. I looked at all kinds of spy movies, and all kinds of documentaries about that time, and what it was about. I grabbed anything from that time period and anything about brainwashing.”
- In battling the Winter Soldier, Captain America needs all the resources he can get, including his iconic shield, which has a lot more uses in the film. The shield is traditionally used mostly as a defensive weapon, but in Captain America: The Winter Soldier the filmmakers wanted to explore using it more as an offensive weapon. There are two handles on the shield and Steve Rogers can hold onto the handles in order to utilize it in an eastern style of fighting.
- Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson wrote their own dialogue for several scenes they had together.
- According to Chris Evans, Steve Rogers continues his adjustment to the modern world, which began in The Avengers (2012): “It’s not so much about his shock with technology… It’s more about the societal differences. He’s gone from the 1940s to today; he comes from a world where people were a little more trusting, the threats not as deep. Now, it’s harder to tell who’s right and wrong. Actions you take to protect people from threats could compromise liberties and privacy. That’s tough for Steve to swallow.”
- Anthony Mackie was unhappy with the modern take on his costume as Falcon. He wanted the red spandex look from the comics.
- The Falcon’s flight gear sports a Stark Industries logo.
- In an attempt to prevent spoilers and keep secrecy, the working title of the project while filming was “Freezer Burn.”
- Anthony Mackie described the film as “The Avengers (2012): Part 1.5″.
- The filmmakers described the Winter Soldier as a “negative image of Captain America.”
- In one scene, Natasha Romanoff wears a necklace with an arrow on it. This is a reference to her teammate and occasional lover Hawkeye (the archer Clint Barton).
- Shooting in Washington D.C. put Steve Rogers, Black Widow, and Falcon in scenes at some of the most prominent national landmarks, including the Jefferson Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, National Air, and Space Museum, Capitol Building, National Mall, Occidental Restaurant at The Willard Hotel, DuPont Circle Neighborhood and the Theodore Roosevelt Bridge, which the production shut down for the first time ever for the filming of a major motion picture.
- Kevin Feige described the film as “a 1970s political thriller masquerading as a big superhero movie.”
- Marks the fourth time Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson have worked together, both starring in The Perfect Score (2004), The Nanny Diaries (2007), and The Avengers (2012) prior to filming.
- Robert Redford wanted to do the film because his grandchildren are fans of Marvel films and he wanted them to see him in one.
- Anthony Mackie likes to say ‘cut the check!’ whenever something had gone right or a scene had been completed. The phrase caught on during filming, and before long everyone on set was saying it.
- Robert Redford was cast in part as a homage to his roles in the 1970s thrillers like Three Days of the Condor (1975).
- Georges St-Pierre, who plays Batroc the Leaper, is the former UFC Welterweight Champion (2008-2013), having vacated his title in December 2013.
- Anna Kendrick, Felicity Jones, Imogen Poots, Teresa Palmer, Alison Brie, Emilia Clarke, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Elizabeth Olsen, and Jessica Brown Findlay were considered to play Sharon Carter.
- Reigning UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre plays a French mercenary in the film. For the filmmakers, landing the popular MMA fighter for the role was a stroke of luck and good timing but it was equally a stroke of luck for Georges St-Pierre who was excited to get his first chance at being in a big action movie.
- The freighter Batroc hijacks, in the beginning, is named the “Lemurian Star”. This is a reference to Lemuria, the sunken continent that was the home of the Deviants, a race of superhumans created by Jack Kirby.
- There are four Korean terms in the film which are only shown in the Korean theaters. In one scene, Captain America writes down keywords from different cultures to help him adjust to the modern lifestyle. They are “Park Ji Sung”, the Korean film “Old Boy” and two remaining keywords that are kept secret.
