Robert Redford’s character Alexander Pierce may or may not be the main bad guy in the Russo Brothers’ “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” Oh, who are we kidding. He’s obviously a bad guy. Officious looking old white dude in a suit = bad guy in Hollywoodland. Haven’t we all learn that by now? Anyways, ol Alexander Pierce has gotten his own poster, which you can check out below.
Who would have thunk there would come a time when comic book movies would become so big and so popular that even the Sundance Kid himself would sign up for one? My, how times have changed.
After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy—the Winter Soldier.
