Trivia: The film producers actually put a lot of thought into Steve's notebook of things to catch up on. The producers thought it would have been a good idea to show Steve's notebook as a way to see that Steve Rogers is a man out of time. Since the idea is that Captain America can feel like he's a hero, not just for America, but the whole world, the producers set up an internet campaign from each different territory to weigh in on the different things Steve would have in his notebook. The campaign would work as the people would have to vote on 20 things Steve could have missed in the last 70 years. The top 5 vote getters from each country ended up getting implemented into each region's version of the film. The bottom 5 options (Thai food, Star Wars/Trek, Nirvana (band), Rocky (Rocky II?) and the Troubleman soundtrack) remained in each version of the film. (00:02:30)
