Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Question: Pierce asked Cap if Fury told Cap that Fury was the one who bugged it, but what did Fury bug?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: They were talking about the apartment Steve Rogers lives in. Pierce is saying Nick Fury bugged Cap's apartment, one of his own agents.

Question: Is it true that the story Nick was telling Cap about his grandfather is based on Samuel L Jackson's grandfather?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Here's what he said in an interview: The thing with him is, you don't know if he's making up a story to get you to do a certain thing or if he's actually giving you a piece of himself. The great thing for me about that particular story is that is what my grandfather did when I was a kid. He actually ran an elevator in a hotel in Chattanooga, Tenn. That was his job. I used to go down there and sit in the elevator with him while he took people up and down. He got tipped that way and had money in his pocket or in a bag - and a little gun. He always had a pistol with him, some brass knuckles. I did not write that, it was just in there. It totally just happened that way. I chuckled about it. I was trying to figure out if I had talked about my grandfather in some interview somewhere years ago or something and somebody read it and put that in there. I never found out if that was the case. I think it's a true story for him.

Question: At the beginning of the movie, when Captain America climbs aboard the ship, he strangles a man and pulls him out of the screen. But he gets up very quickly afterwards and goes on to fight other pirates. We don't hear any neck snapping sound, so how did he take out the guard so quickly?

Answer: With Cap's sheer physical strength, he could have quietly thrown the guy 40 yards.

Charles Austin Miller

Answer: Choke hold would not require a snapping sound. Or he could have thrown the guy off the ship.

Question: Why did they want Romanoff to save S.H.I.E.L.D. intel on Batroc's ship?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Romanoff's mission was to get the real files on Project Insight. Nick Fury suspected he was being kept out of the loop about Insight's true agenda. Even though Project Insight was a S.H.I.E.L.D. project, HYDRA had secretly taken control of it.

Question: When did Zola experiment on Barnes? Didn't Zola get captured by Captain Rogers on the same train as Barnes fell out of? I know he experimented on him before because he survived the fall. But in a short flashback, Zola is standing next to Barnes while he has his metal arm.

Chosen answer: Hydra was working with SHIELD since the 1940s. After he was taken into custody, Hydra would have eventually taken in Zola, where he experimented on Bucky, giving him the metal arm.

Question: What part did I miss to know about the twins at the end of the movie? Also when exactly did Loki lose his weapon to Hydra? Does Loki's weapon have the Tesseract in it?

dhavami

Chosen answer: The Twins are Pietro and Wanda Maximoff, aka Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, who appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Loki's staff was recovered by SHIELD after The Avengers, but of course, SHIELD had HYDRA agents in place to take it. Loki's staff is powered by the Mind Stone, one of the infinity gems.

Revealing mistake: When Cap is driving the blue Chevrolet Silverado with Black Widow, the gear shift is in the up locked position, not lower on the column, indicating the truck was towed in the scene. (00:54:45)
