Re: Captain America: The Winter Soldier pre-release thread

You know who Redford's gotta be playing, right? It's right there in the "senior leadership" line. In the comics, Samuel L. Jackson's version of Nick Fury was recently introduced to the mainstream Marvel Universe...as Nick Fury Junior.





Redford's gonna be following in the footsteps of David Hasselhoff - he's gonna be the classic gray-templed cigar-chomping Nick Fury Sr.

Another strong casting coup by Marvel.

Anthony Hopkins
Tommy Lee Jones and now Robert Redford.

Hollywood royalty wants to play in the MCU, they are clearly liking the scripts they are seeing.
Redford is a big get, as he's selective with what he does. Neither of those guys really compare; they're like Michael Caine, in that they'll do any movie where the price is right.

I'm guessing Redford will be playing an older SHIELD agent whose has been involved with Winter Soldier-related cases in the 60s/70s.

Wow, that would be pretty awesome if he did do it. Has Redford ever done this kind of a big budget sci-fi movie?

Apparently not. He did a Twilight Zone back in the '60s, but that's about it, except for voicing a horse in a 2006 Charlotte's Web adaptation.

Re: Captain America: The Winter Soldier pre-release thread

There's an article with speculations over at IGN. One of the ideas I like is that he plays someone who replaced Steve Rogers as Captain America after Rogers was lost.

Yeah, DC films started that kind of casting decades ago. Marvel films are simply following that well established business model.

Not only has Temis pointed out the biggest flaw in this, do both senior and junior really have eye patches?

While I don't think that is the avenue that Marvel would be likely to pursue, there is a twelve year age difference between Robert Redford and Sam Jackson... so perhaps the right application of make-up could make Redford look plausibly old enough to be a Nick Fury Sr.

And, yes, both Nick Fury Sr. and Nick Fury Jr. (who lived most of his life as Marcus Johnson before finding out who his father was) have eye patches. Junior's patch covers his right eye, just as the case with Senior.

Nick Fury Sr.
Nick Fury Jr.

I saw this same speculation at another site that was doing a run down of candidates.

I like it. It also serves as foreshadowing for another possible replacement Captain America that ties in with the sub-title of this film.

Avengers 2...watch your back Steve.

That's the same gap as between Sean Connery and Harrison Ford. Plus Jackson looks really good for his age.

Psycho, racist, hero worshiping Cap of the 50s or blink and you'll miss him Cap from the late 40s?

I cannot really see them going with that Nick Fury Jr. idea simply because it is a shit idea even leaving aside the very dodgy racial politics that would underpin such a move.
