Robert Redford In Talks For Role in Film
The 76-year-old Hollywood legend looks likely to portray an older member of the US government agency SHIELD, which in the Marvel Comics universe is a sort of CIA for superheroes and those who work with them. According to the original report, the character bears some resemblance to James Bond’s M, always the head of MI6 in the long-running British spy series. The role, if confirmed, would be Redford’s first appearance in a comic-book film.
