25 Small Details From The 'Captain America' Trilogy That You Probably Missed The First Time Around
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!

Steve's To-Do List Was Both Adorable And Unsurprising
Captain Rogers missed quite a few Super Bowls, unfortunately. A quick glimpse at his short but sweet list of things to catch up on really paints him as the old-timer he is. From Redditor u/jayone675:
In Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the only item crossed off Capitan America’s list of things to catch up on after being frozen is Star Wars.
Fun bit of trivia: The items on the list change depending on the country you watched The Winter Soldier in!

Steve Is The Sentimental Type
Redditor u/IDontHaveAName666 brought notice to a very missable detail in the background of Steve's office in Captain America: Civil War at the Avengers facility. You can see a drawing of a performing monkey dressed as Captain America taped to the window that he drew in Captain America: The First Avenger. Considering the drawing is well over 80 years old, it's in excellent shape. Either that or Captain Rogers drew an updated version following his escape from the ice.

Bucky Actually Understands 30 Languages
From Redditor u/LordKimera:
In Captain America: Civil War, only Bucky understands the PA announcement because he mentioned that all Winter Soldiers can speak 30 languages.
Bucky states earlier in the film when talking about the Winter Soldier program, "...They speak 30 languages, can hide in plain sight, infiltrate, assassinate, destabilize. They can take a whole country down in 1 night. You'd never see them coming."
