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

In the comics, the Winter Soldier trained Natasha Romanov, and the two eventually were in a romantic relationship. See more »
The movie makes numerous references to Black Widow (born in 1984) being part of the KGB, which folded in 1991. She would have been about six in order to have been in the KGB. But the geo-political history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is not necessarily exactly the same as in the real world. For instance the flying car being invented during WWII means that history is not exactly as we know it. Even HYDRA (an off shoot of the Nazi party) continues for decades after WWII. The birth-date given is also only what Zola, who is not omniscient, knows to be true. See more »
There are no opening credits, and the title of the film doesn't appear until the end credits. 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 »
It's so much better than the first one. In the first half, hand-held photography and aerial photography, close combat became the main component of action drama. In addition, all kinds of spy assassination dramas were almost spy movies. For a time, it was not even a superhero movie, but a spy movie with upgraded equipment. In the second half, the visual effect of a large movie was produced to climax before the original was restored.
