Callan Mulvey Talks 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE And CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
Rising Australian actor Callan Mulvey talks about his preparation for WB's 300: Rise of an Empire and Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Is his Marvel role one and done, or is he appearing in other projects like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?
A while back, I posted a theory that Captain America: The Winter Soldier is greatly influenced by a 1988 six issue miniseries, Nick Fury vs S.H.I.E.L.D., written by Bob Harras and Paul Neary. To sum up a long story, S.H.I.E.L.D. is infiltrated by an outside, malevolent force that corrupts its policies and practices in such a covert manner that only Nick Fury realizes what is happening. We don't know for sure yet, but it appears that something of that ilk may be happening on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and in the Russo Bros.' Captain America sequel. Clevver Movies spoke to Mulvey about his Marvel role (he plays Jack Rollins, a central S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent in the 1998 comic book story), as well as his role in 300: Rise of an Empire.
Mulvey's career is definitely trending in the right direction. After a breakout role in Zero Dark Thirty, he's starred in 300: Rise of an Empire, filmed a key supporting role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and is rumored to be up for a role in Zack Snyder's Batman vs Superman. I'd say things are definitely looking up for the 39-year-old Australian.
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER Is Actually Based On Nick Fury vs S.H.I.E.L.D.?
