From the files of Marvel is taking over the universe: Deadline.com reports that Robert Redford is in talks to join "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" as a S.H.I.E.L.D. muckety-muck. According to THR, Redford's "Captain America" role would be similar to that of Ralph Fiennes' character in "Skyfall."

Since 2003, Redford has appeared in four films, half of which he directed (2007's "Lions for Lambs" and this year's "The Company You Keep"); his next film is "All Is Lost," a drama from "Margin Call" director J.C. Chandor about a man lost at sea.
