Trivia

Shields made of different materials were used depending on what was needed for the shot. Rubber shields were used for when Captain America punches people with it. For scenes where he put the shield on his back, magnets were used to keep it in place.... ...


Quotes

Search Team Leader: Are you the guys from Washington?
SHIELD Tech: You get many other visitors out here?
SHIELD Lieutenant: How long have you been on site?
Search Team Leader: Since this morning. A Russian oil team called it in about eighteen hours ago.
SHIELD Lieutenant: How come nobody spotted it before?
Search Team Leader: It's really not that surprising....


Goofs

We're told that the shield is "completely vibration absorbent", and this is demonstrated to be true when Peggy shoots it. However, later, through out the film, the shield repeatedly makes clanging noises when things strike it, or it strikes other things. It's assumed that if the shield is "completely vibration absorbent", it shouldn't make any sound at all. This is quite obviously an exaggeration as nothing can be completely vibration absorbent. All atoms vibrate on some level and every school kid knows that every action must produce an equal and opposite reaction. The energy the shield 'absorbs' must be dispersed. Complete absorption would eliminate the possibility of the shield bouncing as well. This is similar to X-men when Stryker tells us that Adamantium is indestructible, when we see it is obviously not.


Crazy Credits

Part of the closing credits is set in a montage of American propaganda posters.
