Robert Redford: I wanted a change

Robert Redford is to star in Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Robert Redford has revealed why he signed on to star in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

The two-time Oscar winner also revealed that he would be taking the role of "the head of SHIELD" in the movie.

He told Spinoff Online: "The Captain America thing is just a very simple thing. I wanted to do something different. I wanted to do something just to be different. Something bold, different. And that felt like a good thing to do.

"That was it, nothing more to it than that. Well, it's bold in terms of expectations, I guess."

It is rumoured that Robert could either play the original Nick Fury - the part played by Samuel L Jackson in the recent Marvel films such as Iron Man and Iron Man 2, Captain America: The First Avenger and Avengers Assemble - or the head of the World Security Council, played by Powers Boothe in Avengers Assemble.

Chris Evans reprises his superhero role as Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, in the sequel, alongside Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Toby Jones, Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L Jackson.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is due out in 3D on April 2014.
