    Trivia

      • Unlike 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."
      • Joe Russo is a big fan of a YouTube channel called Screen Junkies. One of their segments is called Honest Trailers, which features satirical movie trailers, which poke fun at the movies, for which they appear to be. Russo was aiming this film to be "Honest Trailer-proof". However, Screen Junkies did release an Honest Trailer for it, in August of 2014, and the Russo Brothers later appeared in a special video to discuss it with the YouTube channel host Hal Rudnick, and Honest Trailers writers Dan Murrell and Spencer Gilbert, on April 16, 2016.
      • In an attempt to prevent spoilers and keep secrecy, the working title of the project while filming was "Freezer Burn."
      • There are actually two post credit scenes for this Marvel film.
      • Kevin Feige selected Joe Russo and Anthony Russo to direct the film, on the basis of their two back-to-back episodes of Community (2009), that they've directed, with which Feige was impressed: Community: A Fistful of Paintballs (2011) and Community: For a Few Paintballs More (2011).
      • The film takes place two years after The Avengers (2012).
      • Chapter Three of Phase Two in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
      • 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. Although the role ultimately went to Emily VanCamp, Olsen appears as Wanda Maximoff a.k.a. Scarlet Witch in a mid-credits scene.
