This would be Redford's first big Hollywood blockbuster since Tony Scott's Spy Game in 2001. The 76-year-old is apparently eyeing the part of a leader in
SHIELD, a government organization responsible for monitoring the presence of superheroes on Earth.
In Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Chris Evans will reprise his role as Steve Rogers, who has become a genetically modified soldier. Sebastian Stan, Samuel L. Jackson, Toby Jones and Hayley Atwell, who featured in the first film in 2011, will also be back. Scarlett Johansson and Cobie Smulders will represent the Avengers.
The cast of Anthony and Joe Russo's movie will also include Anthony Mackie and Franck Grillo as The Falcon and Crossbones. Captain America: The Winter Soldier will be released on April 4, 2014 in North America.
