Reigning UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre plays a French mercenary in the film.

The "catch-up" list Captain America keeps with him varies from country to country:
Ed Brubaker: A scientist at the birth of the Winter Soldier. Brubaker was the creator of the "Winter Soldier" storyline.
It marks the fifth appearance of Maximiliano Hernández as Jasper Sitwell after Thor (2011) Marvel One-Shot: The Consultant (2011) The Avengers (2012) Item 47 (2012) and multiple episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013).
Unlike the other films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, "The Winter Soldier" minimizes the use of visual effects as much as possible. Anthony Mackie, elaborated: "The Russos, what they did that was so great was, they wanted to stay with live action, which is a dying art form...If they could build it, they built it. If we could do it, we did it. They wanted to do as little CGI as possible. That's why the movie looks so great."
Kate/Agent 13 played by Emily VanCamp is later referred to by her real name (Kate was just her cover name) Sharon. Many fans would have put it together when she was called Agent 13 and others when she is called Sharon, but this is Sharon Carter, Peggy's younger sister in the comics (they later changed it to her niece when they made continuity changes but the relationship in the movie is not established) and major love interest for Captain America. What, if anything, this will mean for future movies remains to be seen. The cover name Kate is from S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Kate Neville.
