A new report claims that Robert Redford is in discussions with Marvel for a role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Deadline are claiming the news, while also speculating that if he were to agree a deal, his character – reported to be that of “a senior leadership role in S.H.I.E.L.D.” – would go on to appear in other Marvel movies, a la Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury.
Also, just how “senior” can Redford’s proposed character be? Isn’t Fury head of that particular organisation? The mind boggles.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is due for release on April 4 2014.
