Here's an awesome bit of surprising Marvel casting news! Legendary actor and filmmaker Robert Redford is currently in talks to join the Joe and Anthony Russo-directed Marvel film Captain America: The Winter Soldier!
According to the report Redford is in talks to play a senior leadership role in S.H.I.E.L.D., which is the government organization run by Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury. I'm sure he'll be awesome in it.
I didn't see this casting happening at all... I mean, it's Robert Redford! I just never thought he'd jump in on a Marvel film, or another other superhero movie for that matter. The next film you'll see Redford in is his The Company You Keep, which stars Shia La Beouf, Stanley Tucci, Nick Nolte, Susan Sarandon, Julie Christie, Sam Elliott, Brit Marling, and Chris Cooper.
The actor joins Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie in the role of the Falcon and Frank Grillo as Crossbones, Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter, Scarlett Johansson, and Cobie Smulders.
The film arrives in 2D and 3D theaters on April 4th, 2014. Do you think Redford will fit in with the Marvel Universe?
