There’s one rather odd running joke but, at the same time, could be potentially revealing. Steve Rogers is shown to be an old man in “Avengers: Endgame,” but his exact location remains obscure. With some reluctantly referring to him as “away,” we still don’t know where he is or what he’s doing.
During episode one, Joaquín Torres makes a strange remark, saying some people think Rogers was chilling in a secret base on the moon. While in the last episode, when Sam announces he’s the new Captain America, another guy also mentions he thought the Cap was on the moon.
Very Different Lists
During one scene, we see Bucky's list of the names; these are the names of people he hurt when he was Hydra's brainwashed assassin, AKA, the Winter Soldier, in a notebook that almost matches Steve's to-do list in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." In the third episode, we find out it IS the same notebook.
While the purposes of the lists prove to be very different – Bucky's was made to right some wrongs from his past, while Steve's was about catching up on recent history, discoveries, and pop culture.
Right Out of the Comic Book
Both Sam Wilson and John Walker settle in peacefully to their pivotal roles as Captain America and U.S. Agent by the show's end. While Marvel's cinematic content is tonally very similar to the movies in the franchise, their suits fared even better when compared to their counterparts in the comic book series.
Sam's Cap suit nearly matches the one in the comic books, while Steve's suit, inclined more towards deep blues, Sam's is predominantly white. Walker's U.S. Agent suit stayed true to the original comic book drawings, with black making up the prime color with a dash of white and red on the front.
Now That's a Cool Disguise
During the last episode, we find Sharon Carter is back in New York while hiding from the government. The ex-CIA agent helped Steve, Sam, and Bucky in "Captain America: Civil War" and is now on the run. In true spy thriller fashion, she wears a hi-tech disguise so she doesn't get caught, and it's so nifty it also alters her voice.
She's wearing a nano mask which works as a photostatic veil. You may remember it from "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," it made an appearance when Natasha, who we all know as Black Widow, used one to sneak into a World Security Council meeting.
In episode three, Marvel drops us into the messy world when Sam and Bucky visit the imprisoned Zemo; we see Zemo reading a book in German titled "Fortuna ist ein Reissender Fluss." At first, we can't help but wonder why they would feature this book at all - the book details Leonardo da Vinci and Niccolo Machiavelli’s friendship.
It would seem that there's nothing noteworthy about this book, but when scrutinized a bit, it would make sense for Zemo, who's strategically trying to befriend the man whose name inspired “machiavellian.”
