Robert Redford is officially locked in for The Winter Soldier, playing not just a high-ranking S.H.I.E.L.D. member as rumored, but the agency’s leader. “The Captain America thing is just a very simple thing. I wanted to do something different,” Redford says of his decision to enter the Marvel universe. “Something bold, different. And that felt like a good thing to do. That was it, nothing more to it than that.” But will he dig it enough to appear on the S.H.I.E.L.D. show?
