Redford Confirms CAPTAIN AMERICA Role; More Movie News

Veteran actor Robert Redford has not only confirmed his involvement in 2014's Captain America: The Winter Soldier in recent days, but clarified his role, as reported Tuesday by Spinoff Online.

Redford was initially reported to be playing a character with a "senior leadership role in S.H.I.E.L.D.," but told Spinoff Online that he's playing "the head of S.H.I.E.L.D." Exactly who that might be, and what that means for current Marvel Cinematic Universe director of S.H.I.E.L.D. Nick Fury, played by Samuel L. Jackson in multiple Marvel Studios productions including The Winter Soldier, remains to be seen.

Last week, Redford told the Los Angeles Times, "I'm doing this film because it's different. It's a new thing for me... I think these films are really powerful. I think they're great. This is the kind of film I would have loved to see as a kid."
