It's a new form of film-making...
Robert Redford sat down with EW at Sundance and, among other things, discussing his role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier as Alexander Pierce. Redford said he did the role because he wanted to experience the next era of movie-making.
"One of the reasons that I did it was I wanted to experience this new form of filmmaking that's taken over where you have kind of cartoon characters brought to life through high technology," Redford said. "The Avengers series is a product of high technology playing a major role in the new order of filmmaking so I wanted to experience that—I just wanted to know what that was like and I had that opportunity, so for me it was like stepping into new terrain just to experience what it was like."
