Robert RedfordCaptain America: The Winter Soldier is shaping up to be quite an interesting-sounding film. S.H.I.E.L.D. reportedly will be playing a big role as Captain America, Steve Rogers, adjusts to living in the twenty-first century in the upcoming sequel. In fact, we’ll get to meet the head of S.H.I.E.L.D., Nick Fury’s superior, played by none other than the iconic Robert Redford. A superhero movie doesn’t sound much like his usual style, but here’s what he told Spinoff about his decision to take the role:

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.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier premieres April 4, 2014. Excited about the latest news? Frustrated that you have to wait another year to get to see the movie? Let us know in the comments below!
