I want to say it was his polite way of saying, "Not really, it made me aroused." When men become aroused, well, you likely know what happens, and it can lead to some slight...discomfort? Cap is definitely still fairly old fashioned as you put it, and simply wanted to be polite and not vulgar.

Agent Sitwell (Hydra) mentions Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, and Stephen Strange by name. We know Stark and Banner are Iron Man and the Hulk. Most comics fans will also recognize the name Stephen Strange as Dr. Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme. (Fans of the Marvel films will recognize him now as well, since the film Dr. Strange was released in November 2016.) ...

This transfer of German (even Nazi) scientists has a basis in reality. The Germans had brilliant scientists during the war and the US and other powers were willing to..erm...overlook their possible crimes to gain a geo-political advantage over other powers. Operation Paperclip Operation Paperclip was a secret program of the Joint Intelligence Objectives ...

Seems this is S.H.I.E.L.D operative Brock Rumlow. According to Frank Grillo who plays him: "Very early on the [film's directors] Russos said, 'Look, this is an origin film for this character. We're gonna discover who this is and this is a big movie with a lot of moving parts, but we're gonna discover you in this film and, you know, here's the information ...

There are several misconceptions in your question, so I'm just going to address the general question of "What happened to Bucky Barnes after he fell off the train?". The first thing worth noting is that in Captain America: The First Avenger, Steve Rogers rescued Bucky from Hydra captivity after finding him having recently been experimented on by Dr. Arnim ...

Now that Captain Marvel is out, we finally know how Fury lost his left eye in the MCU. He was playing with and petting Goose, the "cat" they found in the research facility, and Goose scratched his eye. The scars around his eye are also from Goose, who is actually a Flerken, an alien race.

No. It is not explained in the Marvel Cinematic Universe ever except the conversation you already mentioned. This may or may not be explained in future films, but it is pure speculation for now. However, it is explained in the comic world. In Earth-616, Nick Fury fought in World War II as part of the Howling Commandos. A grenade by Nazi soldier was thrown ...

It's thematic for multiple reasons. It's a continuation of Steve's character plot. Is Captain America just a symbol, or a man? It ties into the overall plot of the movie. Who is the man behind the uniform? Contrast 'Who is the Winter Soldier' and 'Hydra infiltrating SHIELD'. It is a call back to The Avengers. Where Stark was Goading Tony into a fight: ...

Having just re-watched Captain America: Winter Soldier, there is no on-screen evidence to show that Nick Fury was treated with GH-325 from what I saw. I am also dubious that Fury would treat himself with something that he knew caused a lot of problems to those that it was used on unless their mind was completely wiped. So unless they do some sort of retcon,...

They had to keep some of her comic backstory relevant, or the fanboys would have cried foul. In the comics, she was actually born in the late 20's/early 30's. If you recall the scene in The Avengers, when she lures Banner out, she uses a very young girl and remarks something like, "I was about her age when I started." So the MCU already has her working at ...

When Captain America sheds his new stealth suit from S.H.I.E.L.D., he does so because he believes it would be in bad taste to wear it whilst fighting HYDRA. After learning HYDRA has operated within S.H.I.E.L.D. for decades, Rogers sheds all ties to the organization and steals a modified version of the uniform he wore during World War II on display at The ...

Even though it's just vibranium -- with Capt. having no innate relationship with this material -- the shield most often behaves in a way that perfectly reflects Capt.'s intentions at that time. For example: He wants a bullet to stop upon contact with the shield, it stops. He wants to throw the shield and have it bounce off 12 things before coming back to ...

Officially, because they were "too busy" focusing on feature films, or they just didn't have a good enough idea at the time. This article about the omission explains: Executives there have told EW in the past that they might bring a temporary halt to the One-Shots if they didn’t have a strong story idea or their full focus was needed on the feature film ...

First of all, it's important to note that the SSR didn't find Bucky's body. The Soviets found him, and gave him to HYDRA initially. Even though Zola was working for SHIELD using SHIELD resources doesn't mean SHIELD "gave him" Bucky's body to fix. Secondly, at the time that Armin Zola was working on Bucky, he was not considered an "enemy". SHIELD probably ...

I think it's part of the cameo from George St-Pierre. He's having a fight vs a UFC champion, so to complement the cameo he goes without a mask to make it feel like a UFC fight. I have not found anything from the director specifying an exact reason so I assume it's related to GSP's UFC carreer. As OP stated, he doesn't need to hide his identity, it's purely ...

As you said, Maria Hill was able to infiltrate the group of S.H.I.E.L.D/Hydra agents who had captured Captain America, Black Widow, and the Falcon. She was even able to conveniently get herself stationed in the vehicle that was transporting the prisoners. Given that, I don't think it's too far-fetched to think that she could also get Cap's shield (and Falcon'...

Barring evidence to the contrary, I'd say there's no direct connection. It's more likely just common archetypes and visualization of characters through costume. The primary hero often wears costumes in primary/patriotic colors (e.g.: Superman, Wonder Woman, Captain America, Captain Marvel) and is usually clean-cut. They also tend to have a darker/gritty ...

I know a lot of American's can't tell the difference between an Australian and a South African and a New Zealand accent. Maybe its the same issue, and no-one noticed that the somewhat frenchish accent wasn't actually French/Algerian.

Right after Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow was shot by Winter soldier, this is the soundtrack gets played 13.The Causeway It starts with kind of a shrieking sound. Here's the link

The guy was just an incredible athlete. He was played by Georges St. Pierre, a real life UFC champion, so basically, he's just absolutely amazing at martial arts and close to peak physical condition. Remember, as incredible as Cap is, he's technically not super-human. He's as strong and as fast as a human can possibly be, not above.

The long and the short of it is that it's never explained, in either the movie or the source comic. They were most likely gassed or controlled in some other way, but they somehow ended up back in cryogenic stasis.

I couldn't find any reference to what happened to Cap's new suit in the final movie. But in the deleted scene it's shown that there's a tracking device in the suit that S.H.I.E.L.D. tries to use to hunt Cap down: Even without this scene, I guess, we can still assume that Steve Rogers suspected something about the S.H.I.E.L....

There is really no explanation other than this is a plot hole. At times, the shield absorbs kinetic energy, as with the bullets. At others, Cap is bouncing it off all kinds of things with inhuman accuracy. There is no explanation given in any of the movies as to why this is the case.

I only add more information about Batroc, the Leaper. Both he and Captain America are still human, but while Captain America has peak human condition in every aspect (strength, agility, speed, stamina), Batroc has only near peak condition which makes him almost, but not quite as powerful as Captain America. Both are deadly for their normal human opponents. ...
