In the opening scenes of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we get a quick glimpse at a list of things Steve Rogers wants to catch up on since he was frozen.

I read that these things were region specific, but never really saw much more than that.

I just watched it and noticed that in the Australian cut Steve wants to see "Skippy the Bush Kangaroo" and Rocky (although perhaps not Rocky 2).

Is there a complete list of all the 'stuff' from the different cuts that the Captain wants to catch up on?

And which things are on all lists?

Skippy the Bush Kangaroo is by far my favorite show I've never seen, thanks entirely to Craig Ferguson. –  Michael Edenfield Apr 13 at 21:41

TL;DR

Across the multiple versions of the lists, the last five items of each list match between each region.

  • Thai Food
  • Star Wars/Trek
  • Nirvana (Band)
  • Rocky (Rocky II?)
  • Troubleman (Soundtrack)

Screenshots come from the “Steve Rogers’ Notebook” featurette on the DVD special features.


So what are the differences?

According to Entertainment Weekly, there are 10 different regional versions of the list.

Empire magazine tweeted out the list for the U.K., but the studio actually has specific lists for 10 different markets, including France, Germany, Italy, and Korea.

However, I have found evidence of 11 lists.

I find it interesting that the handwriting varies from one region to the next. –  phantom42 Apr 11 at 14:12

In all universes, Steve Rogers wants to try out Thai Food. –  Zibbobz Apr 11 at 14:13

Also, the hand writing style looks the same, but the slight difference in each iteration tells me they actually had him write it out for each release, or at the very least had someone who could mimick his handwriting write it out for each release. –  Zibbobz Apr 11 at 14:14

@Zibbobz Probably neither his handwriting or his hands in those screenshots, to be honest. Simple things like that they're not going to bother to get the actual actor to do. –  Anthony Grist Apr 11 at 14:18

@RobertF Cap is advised to listen to the soundtrack for Trouble Man during the course of the movie. The screencaps come from the scene where he adds it to his list. –  phantom42 Apr 11 at 16:00
