If you missed 70 years of pop culture, then you would definitely need the Steve Rogers List.
I feel like everyone knows at this point about the little notebook that Captain Rogers (Chris Evans) carries around to fill with various pop-culture tidbits. Now while some pop culture things are universal like Star Wars and Star Trek. Some of them are region specific. So Marvel, in order to make the film accessible to audiences around the world, has made several different lists for various markets.
We here at 4YE have tracked down some of these lists to put in a gallery. The lists we found are from the United States, the United Kingdom, Korea, Mexico, Italy, and Spain. The various lists include such things as Shakira, DDR, and Sherlock.
Countries with their own lists that are not pictured include France, Germany, and Australia. France’s list includes Daft Punk and 1998 World Cup. Germany has Oktoberfest and the Berlin Wall (up and down like the U.S. list). Australia has Tim Tams, Steve Irwin, and Skippy the Bush Kangaroo. One of my Australian co-workers here, however, assures me that Skippy the Bush Kangaroo is a huge pop culture character.
Marvel has done some inclusive elements in the past for a global audience. In Iron Man 3, the Chinese release of the movie featured extra footage and country specific product placement.
So there you go! What would you have Steve put on his list of pop culture knowledge? I would recommend Doctor Who, Daria, Backstreet Boys, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and P!nk for the list.
