It appears if there may be a new head of S.H.I.E.L.D. or senior S.H.I.E.L.D. agent in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER. Reports are surfacing that Robert Redford, yes that Robert Redford, is in talks to join the cast. Redford is not the usual actor for this type of picture and currently has only made indie flicks or low budgets films. It will be interesting to see if they lock Redford down for other Marvel projects. Could we see Redford in Thor: The Dark World or Guardians of the Galaxy as well? Only time and a multi-picture contract will tell.
The Plot: "Winter Soldier" is based on the comic book storyline of the same name, wherein Bucky (Sebastian Stan) is brainwashed and used against his ally Captain America. Anthony Mackie (The Hurt Locker) will appear as Falcon, and Samuel L. Jackson will likely once again reprise his role as Nick Fury, as the film will tie into both this summer's The Avengers and its planned sequel.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier will be released in the U.S. on April 4, 2014.
