Robert Redford Explains More Of What Attracted Him To CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

Beyond trying something new, Robert Redford says he's playing the head of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the Captain America sequel because of the high-tech nature of it and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in general.

Academy Award-winning actor, filmmaker, and philanthropist Robert Redford sat down recently with Entertainment Weekly at the Sundance Film Festival, which he founded 30 years ago, and discussed his many upcoming projects. With his role as the Head of S.H.I.E.L.D., Alexander Pierce, in Captain America: The Winter Soldier the first venture on his plate, Redford addressed once again why he joined the upcoming Marvel sequel. “One of the reasons that I did it was I wanted to experience this new form of filmmaking that’s taken over where you have kind of cartoon characters brought to life through high technology,” he says. “The Avengers series is a product of high technology playing a major role in the new order of filmmaking so I wanted to experience that—I just wanted to know what that was like and I had that opportunity, so for me it was like stepping into new terrain just to experience what it was like.” What do you think?
