Robert Redford in talks to join Marvel’s ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’

Believe it or not, Robert Redford is in final negotiations to join the cast of Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. This is indeed bizarre news because the last major Hollywood blockbuster Redford appeared in was 2001’s Spy Game. Instead, the director and actor prefers starring in either his own directed films, or smaller indie projects.No problem with that at all, and considering Redford’s reputation an all round great guy, he can do what he wants and still generate massive interest.

However, appearing in a superhero film, now that is a first for the actor, and I am sure you will agree that this is rather exciting. The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed Redford is in talks to appear in the Captain America sequel, and it is thought he will be playing an older member of S.H.I.E.L.D. Other sites are now coming up with ideas that this could mean Redford might get talked into a multiple film deal to show up in some, maybe all of Marvel’s Phase Two films. Another theory is that the small role in Captain America could be Redford’s way in to the Marvel universe, and that bigger things may be planned for his character come The Avengers 2.

Nothing is known for certain, so we can either speculate all we want, or wait for official confirmation that will hopefully come soon.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier will star Chris Evans, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Sebastian Stan, Scarlett Johansson, Emily VanCamp and Samuel L. Jackson. The film will be directed by Anthony and Joe Russo.

The film has a release date of 4th April 2014.


As Steve Rogers continues his affiliation with S.H.I.E.L.D and struggles to embrace his role in the modern world, he’s reunited with James ‘Bucky’ Barnes, who is now brainwashed Russian assassin known as the ‘Winter Soldier’.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
