Schmidt and Zola encounters Captain America and Bucky.
The music here is Factory Inferno.
We realise Schmidt has supersoldier strength. The two fight.
And Schmidt reveals his true, er, colours.
The Red Skull escapes in a rocket. It’s a Triebflügeljäger, a design by the Nazis that was never made.
Zola escapes by car. Bucky and Cap finally make it out too.
Captain America leads the soldiers back to base.
The music here is Triumphant Return.
At an award ceremony held by Brandt, we get the Stan Lee cameo.
It’s worth noting that Lee had nothing to do with the creation of Captain America.
We see a brief street scene of London. It’s King Charles Street in Westminster.
Beneath that street is the Cabinet War Room, where Winston Churchill planned the allied campaign. But here it’s Longcross Studios, Chobham Lane, Chertsey, in Surrey.
Rogers mentions the Maginot Line, a line of concrete fortifications used to protect France in the lead up to World War II.
There was an extended version of this scene.
He recruits the Howling Commandos. They are drinking at Crocker’s Folly, 24 Aberdeen Place, Maida Vale, London NW8.
Behind them the piano player is playing the traditional song There Is A Tavern In The Town.
And in walks Agent Carter. Apparently the dress was designed for the film Inglorious Basterds but was not used.
Stark plays around with some of the Tesseract. It blows up in his face.
Rogers talks to Private Lorraine. She is reading The Stars And Stripes, the US military’s newspaper.
They then share a kiss.
Howard Stark shows Rogers some shields. He finds the Vibranium one that would become his signature.
In the comics, Howard Stark played no part in making the shield. The metal vibranium comes from Wakanda, home of Black Panther, and the making of the shield is part of that character’s mythology. The shield in the comics is also part adamantium, the indestructible metal used by Wolverine’s claws. It could be that Fox owns that term because of Wolverine, but either way the MCU has chosen to avoid mentioning it.
And we see Captain America, in costume, with his shield.
Captain America and the Howling Commandos take out several Hydra bases.
Music here is called the Howling Commandos Montage.
Captain America and the Howling Commandos have tracked Zola to a train.
Music here is called the Hydra Train.
Cap and Bucky defeat several Hydra soldiers.
Bucky kills a couple of them.
Bucky is attacked, and falls out of the train to his death. OR DOES HE?
Meanwhile, Gabe Jones apprehends Zola.
Back at Allied HQ (still King Charles Street).
Phillips talks to an imprisoned Zola. He mentions he does eat meat. Hitler was also a vegetarian.
And we see the amazing aircraft that The Red Skull has built.
The music here is Rain Fire Upon Them.
Agent Carter finds a distraught Rogers.
Rogers reveals he can’t get drunk.
Rogers, on a motorbike, is being chased by several Hydra soldiers, who shoot at him.
The music here is Motorcycle Mayhem.
Cap breaks in, but is captured.
The Howling Commandos attack. Why they didn’t just abseil into the main headquarters earlier is beyond me. Perhaps Cap caused a distraction, but it’s not much of one.
