As Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world, he teams up with a fellow Avenger and S.H.I.E.L.D agent, Black Widow, to battle a new threat from history: an assassin known as the Winter Soldier.
For Steve Rogers, awakening after decades of suspended animation involves more than catching up on pop culture; it also means that this old school idealist must face a world of subtler threats and difficult moral complexities. That becomes clear when Director Nick Fury is killed by the mysterious assassin, the Winter Soldier, but not before warning Rogers that SHIELD has been subverted by its enemies. When Rogers acts on Fury's warning to trust no one there, he is branded as a traitor by the organization. Now a fugitive, Captain America must get to the bottom of this deadly mystery with the help of the Black Widow and his new friend, The Falcon. However, the battle will be costly for the Sentinel of Liberty, with Rogers finding enemies where he least expects them while learning that the Winter Soldier looks disturbingly familiar.Written by

When asked why Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, or any of the other Avengers weren't called to help Captain America or Black Widow in the film, the screenwriters explained that the movie only takes place in about three days, therefore the characters didn't have a chance to contact them. See more »

The contents of Steve Rogers' notebook near the opening of the film differ from region to region, depending upon what was popular and relevant to the particular country where the film was being shown/released. For example, the version of the film shown in Italy has Roberto Benigni, the version shown in Latin America has Shakira, Russia has Yuri Gagarin's name (first man in space), etc. See more »
There's a humility in Captain America that many superheroes don't see. The captain of the United States deserves your cheers and cheers, because he keeps his integrity and clear mind and sticks to his position.
