Robert Redford Playing A Villain In Captain America 2



We learn of Robert Redford's exact role in Captain America 2 as the actor has made it known that he will play the part of a villain.

It was first rumored that Robert Redford was to be featuring in Captain America 2, then confirmed, with it coming out the actor will be playing a senior leader within S.H.I.E.L.D. named Alexander Pierce.

Now Robert Redford tells the Straits Times that he took the role because it's different from what he has done before.

"I like the idea of playing a villain. I did that just because it's a different thing for me to do," he told the Times.

We even have a pic of the relevant excerprt from the news article (via herebegeeks):


Of course it could be that Redford is simply playing a "bad" guy, meaning he comes to odds with Captain America over SHIELD's policies and Cap's morality.

The Russo Bros. are directing Captain America: The Winter Soldier which has an April 4th, 2014 release date and stars Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson and Robert Redford.


Captain America: The Winter Soldier will pick-up where “Marvel’s The Avengers” left off, as Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and teams up with Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington, D.C.
