List RulesVote up the details you missed when you first watched the 'Captain America' trilogy.

All good things must come to an end and with the final scene of Avengers: Endgame, so does the story of Captain Steve Rogers, AKA Captain America. Through The First Avenger, The Winter Soldier, and Civil War, Captain America has been a vanguard for morality and decency in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Directors Joe Johnston and the Russo Brothers, Anthony and Joe Russo, managed to craft a trilogy of superhero films that, while enhanced by The Avengers films, tell a rich and complete story of a soldier out of his time and occasionally socially out of his depths. 

This is a collection of small details from the Captain America trilogy. Did you manage to catch these details on your first viewing? Vote up the details you missed when watching the Captain America films!
