Robert Redford Affirms ‘Head of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Role In CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
Reiterating why he's joining the Marvel sequel, veteran actor Robert Redford has acknowledged his role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier not to be just a senior official, but the HEAD of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Amid a press roundtable for the veteran actor’s latest directional effort, political thriller The Company You Keep, Spinoff Online spoke with Robert Redford about his role in Marvel Studios’ own upcoming “political thriller,” Captain America: The Winter Soldier. While his role was reported as a senior leader of the Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson)-directed S.H.I.E.L.D. organization, Redford clarifies, “Well, the head of S.H.I.E.L.D. The head of S.H.I.E.L.D,” Reiterating why he’s joining the Marvel sequel, he added, “The Captain America thing is just a very simple thing. I wanted to do something different. I wanted to do something just to be different. Something bold, different. And that felt like a good thing to do. That was it, nothing more to it than that. Well, it’s bold in terms of expectations, I guess.”
Meanwhile, IMDB recently added another S.H.I.E.L.D.-affiliated character, established in the comics as Jack Rollins, set to be portrayed by Callan Mulvey. Anyhow, filming for Captain America: The Winter Soldier has reportedly commenced at Marvel Studios/Manhattan Beach Studios in California. What do you think?
