Steve Rogers aka Captain America has been an integral part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The character was brought to life by an outstanding performance by Chris Evans and now it has finally reached its end. Recently, on October 4th, the actor finally confirmed on Twitter that he won’t be returning for another movie after Avengers 4. He wrote, “Officially wrapped on Avengers 4. It was an emotional day, to say the least. Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honor. To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful.” It certainly broke hearts of many fans including myself. And, this article is not actually about his farewell but the mistakes many didn’t notice in his standalone movies. There have been three standalone Captain America movies, Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Captain America: Civil War released throughout the MCU and as most of the films, they have mistakes which many fans missed.
In this article, we will be pointing out those mistakes. So, without taking much of your time, let us jump on them.
# The unfollowed military protocol.
Well, we all know that Hollywood has many movies where the military plays a big part. And, most of the people who are shown as soldiers or someone else from the military are actors. They are not real soldiers. There are special agencies who specialize in working in Hollywood’s military based movies and a similar thing happened in Captain America: The First Avenger. Despite the attention to detail, some things were missed in the movie. One such scene was when Steve Rogers was flirting with Peggy Carter. Many people didn’t notice but he wasn’t wearing his hat in the sequence which is a basic protocol.
# Steve’s pants.
We all know that Bruce Banner when transforms into Hulk has the same pants on despite the size difference between the two. Something similar happened in The First Avenger after the experiment on Steve was successful. When Steve goes into the chamber to transform into his bigger self, he is wearing military pants and even after the experiment, he was seen in the same. It is strange because there was a huge change in his size before and after the experiment.
# Zemo’s plan in the Civil War.
Zemo’s plan in Captain America: Civil War was probably the best and it worked completely fine as he was able to achieve his mission and that’s breaking the Avengers up. Though, there are some things that are quite strange about it. Like, how did he know that the Winter Soldier killed Tony’s parents? Or, who told him about the Sokovia Accords beforehand? It looks like there are a lot of coincidences, but frankly, they are too much.
# Black Widow’s shoes.
The airport fight scene in the Civil War was probably one of the best fighting scenes in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was just fantastic to watch the superheroes going against each other. Though, during the fight, Black Widow’s shoes changed. When she was running in the sequence the shoes that had heels. But, after that, they vanished and became flat. Well, this may have happened to keep the height of the stuntwoman and Scarlett similar.
# Bucky’s birth year.
From the comics, fans know that Steve was born on 4th July 1918. But, the birth year of Bucky gets tricky when Rogers goes to his exhibition and looks at Bucky’s part there. The placard shows two birth years, 1916 and 1917. Well, it is a huge mistake because the correct year is 1918 and the information that is shown in the movie was wrong.
# Civil War messes up the timeline of the whole MCU.
We know that the events shown in The Incredible Hulk, Thor and Iron Man 2 happened in the same week. And, the events shown in Civil War happened between 2010 to 2016. But, things get confusing when Vision opens his mouth and says that this has been going on for eight years. I mean, seriously? This is a big mistake on the part of Marvel because we know that they have done a great job in putting together the entire MCU perfectly according to the timeline. But, the one statement by Vision changes everything. It’s quite shocking to know that they did such a huge mistake.
# Spider-Man’s web.
Spider-Man’s entry in the Civil War is certainly iconic and no one can deny that. We also know that in the movie, Spider-Man: Homecoming, he says that the web lasts for about two hours. Though, during the iconic scene when Spidey webs Captain America’s shield, the web disappears from the front part completely after the landing shot. All this happens in a few seconds and it is quite strange to see the web removed. If we go by the scene, then Peter removed the web in few seconds between webbing the shield and landing on the car. Strange, isn’t it? But, who can say this to Marvel?
So, these are some of the mistakes that we noticed in the Captain America movies. If you think we missed something, then let us know and we will add them. Till then, keep enjoying and reading!
