Chris Evans' Captain America is, without question, one of the most beloved superheroes in modern times. While this is mostly due to Evans' performance, filmmakers, scriptwriters, costumers, and prop masters absolutely deserve credit where credit is due for bringing the Star-Spangled Man to life on the big screen. The attention to detail in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is unparalleled and the payoff keeps us coming back for more, with rewatch after rewatch.

This is a collection of small details about the character of Captain America in the MCU. Vote up the details you missed while watching the MCU!

    From Redditor u/mishft:

    In Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), before Captain America gets his real shield he uses two random objects (a trash can lid and a taxi door) as shields, both of which if combined closely resemble the final product of his real shield.

    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.

    Redditor u/Martification compiled these to-do lists from different versions of the film!

    The Russo Brothers Believed In Cap All Along

    In arguably the most Avengers-Avengers scene, we see Earth's Mightiest Heroes sitting around having a laugh and a few drinks while trying to lift Mjolnir, Thor's hammer, in Avengers: Age of Ultron. As it goes, only the worthy are able to lift the hammer and "possess the power of Thor." Everyone remembers when Cap "struggles" to pick up Mjolnir, but he was actually just putting on a show. During an episode of the Happy Sad Confused Podcast, Anthony Russo stated:

    In our heads, he was able to wield it. He didn’t know that until that moment in Ultron when he tried to pick it up. But Cap’s sense of character and humility and, out of deference to Thor’s ego, Cap in that moment realizing he can move the hammer, decides not to.
