Cap's back, this weekend, and he's bringing his magic shield/tray with him for the latest addition to the Marvel universe. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is released today and sees the stars and stripes hero take on a new enemy in the form of some douchebag with a metal arm. But before you head to the cinema, assemble yourself some facts to impress your friends and family:

1. To stop snooping journalists and fanboys, the working title of the film was 'freezer burn'.

2. Former UFC welter-weight champion, George St-Pierre, appears in the film as Batroc the Leaper.

3. Robert Redford apparently wanted to do the film because his grandchildren are Marvel fans, and he wanted them to see him in one.

4. The man who created the Winter Soldier character, Ed brubaker, makes a cameo, as does Stan Lee.

5. Other new superheroes/villains, include The Falcon, Crossbones and Batroc the Leaper, who, unsurprisingly, likes to leap.
