Vote For Captain America's Reading List
And see your choice in The Winter Soldier

It's not easy being Cap. After being frozen for over 60 years, he has a lot of catching up to do on history, literature and pop culture. So, in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we're going to see Chris Evans' Steve Rogers keep a notebook of things he needs to research. Now you have the chance to vote on what you think he should be focusing on, and see your choice listed in that book's "Celebrity" category in the finished film through the magic of digital trickery, or possibly a late insert shot.


Disney has given us a list of British and Irish celebrities that they want you to choose from. So we need you to get your thinking caps on. Which of these names would intrigue Cap sufficiently to warrant further research? Which of these people might he want to know more about? When he's not hanging with the other Avengers / fighting the Winter Soldier / investigating the darker corners of SHIELD, that is.

The full list is below, so have a look and let us know what you think. It's a big responsibility: you don't want to make the Star-Spangled Man With The Plan look silly or waste his valuable time.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits UK cinemas on March 23, so you'll be able to see the result onscreen.

Which UK/Eire celebrities has Cap missed between 1945 and 2010?
George Best
Graham Norton
Simon Cowell
Kate Moss
David Beckham
Ricky Gervais
Sean Connery
Keira Knightley
Katie Price

Connery is the only person with talent deserving to 'win' this list. Most of the other people are either untalented idiots, devoid of any worth and not worth researching. I have high hopes for this film-bring it on! More

Heartening to see Sean Connery as the most voted for option. More
