Captain America Has Slightly Different To-Do Lists Around the World

If you haven’t already seen Captain America: The Winter Soldier, then what’s wrong with you? Go see it! If you still haven’t seen it, then don’t worry because the contents of this post don’t spoil any plot points; just one adorable insert shot/throwaway joke that will put a smile on your face. Still, if you don’t want anything ruined, then I’ll give you a chance to get out. Are you still here? Wait, what was that? Oh, I thought you said something else. Okay, good.

As you may remember, early on in the film when Captain America first makes the acquaintance of Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), the retired veteran who we’ll soon know as The Falcon, he is told to check out the soundtrack to Trouble Man by Marvin Gaye. We know from Avengers that Cap is on a never-ending struggle to understand modern pop culture references, but how does he keep track of them all? Why, his handy-dandy to-do list of course, and he has a different one for every part of the world!


One enterprising redditor noted that, at an early screening of the film in South Korea, Steve Rogers had a slightly different set of cultural references with which to acquaint himself:



ScreenCrush pointed out some of the differences in the UK version



I know they shot four minutes of  additional footage for Iron Man 3’s Chinese release that included popular Chinese actors, so please, please, please tell me they shot bonus footage of Cap playing Dance Dance Revolution to air exclusively in Korean markets. Here’s hoping that other geographic-specific lists will start popping up in the coming weeks.

    I loved the WarGames reference. 🙂

    I wonder what Germany’s version would be:

    TV Show – Knight Rider & Baywatch
    Berlin Wall (Up-Down)
    David Hasselhoff
    Seriously, David Hasselhoff
    Star Wars/Trek
    and so on… 🙂

    My favorite bit was the quote on a gravestone in the end.

  3. Gabie says:

    I was quite upset when I watched it a couple of weeks ago when I found out that other Asian countries had special lists. 🙁 We got the American one.

  4. Daniel says:

    I can verify that the one I saw here at the IMAX in Suwon, South Korea did NOT have any additional footage of Cap’ playing DDR.

  5. GreatLake Avenger says:

    But Cap had time to watch War Games….

  6. Elisabeth says:

    Spanish (from Spain) version:

  7. Rich Mahogany says:

    In New Zealand we got the same list as Australia. Marvel owes our country an apology.

  8. Anne says:

    In France, we have France98 (Soccer), Daft Punk, Coluche and Louis De Funes.

  9. Valerie says:

    The Australian version has AC/DC at the top of the list.

  10. Kaiser The Great says:

    Spanish version:

  11. Scott says:

    Australian version also has ACDC and Steve Irwin

  12. Jay says:

    This was a stupid idea. Why would an American want to catch up on Skippy?

  13. Mira Sawyer says:

    For Australia, he has Skippy the Bush Kangaroo and Tim Tams.

  14. Dan Casey says:

    @jm5150 Must be a breach over at S.H.I.E.L.D.

  15. BBRESULLA says:

    It looks like the only thing he has crossed off was Star Wars. Nice play Disney

    looks like someone is streaming a bootleg torrent
