A new S.H.I.E.L.D. Commander for The Winter Soldier?

Robert Redford has been confirmed for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It was revealed the Oscar-winning actor/director would be playing the new head of S.H.I.E.L.D., a position typically held by Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury.

So the question is just where that leaves our beloved, cycloptic badass. Anyone who’s read Ed Brubaker’s “Winter Soldier” story arc knows that Fury was a key player in the events that unfolded, leaving me somewhat puzzled. Is Nick being replaced or will Redford be playing one of the U.N. suits behind S.H.I.E.L.D. that we saw in The Avengers? I guess we’ll just have to wait to find out.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is scheduled for release April 4th, 2014 and will star Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Scarlett Johansson, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp, Hayley Atwell, Georges St-Pierre, Robert Redford and Maximiliano Hernández.

  1. I am really excited to see Anthony Mackie as the “Falcon”, Chris Evans don deshields again, and for crap sake “Bucky”. The Winter soldier was definitely an underrated character, I hope you get stuck play, that he deserves.
