Check Out Steve Rogers' Varying To-Do Lists from 'Captain America 2'
Before you read any further, if you want to save this fun little detail from Captain America: The Winter Soldier to be experienced when you see the film this weekend, we recommend avoiding the rest of this post. Having said that, what follows isn't a spoiler, but just an interesting tidbit in the sequel that adds even more charm to Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and his unique situation of having been frozen for 70 years and somewhat out of touch with pop culture and the contemporary world. What would Rogers do when he's not working for S.H.I.E.L.D.? Well, he has a lot of catching up to do, and his to-do list gives us some insight.
Here's an image from the Marvel sequel showing the things Steve Rogers wants to learn about:
But what's interesting is the changes made for the film in the United Kingdom (via SlashFilm):
Notice that disco has been replaced by The Beatles and "I Love Lucy" has been replaced by "Sherlock." Apparently Sean Connery is a bigger deal than Steve Jobs across the pond too. And apparently, this isn't the only difference in the lists from the sequel that is already hitting theaters around the world. SlashFilm points out commenters have said that Australia's cut includes AC/DC and Steve Irwin, France has the 1998 World Cup and The Fifth Element, and Koreans have seen "Dance Dance Revolution" and Oldboy listed. It's a nice touch by Marvel to stay in tune with their international crowds in a small but cool way. Amusing?
