Two News Bits that Confirms Robert Redford is a Bad Guy in Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Two juicy tidbits pertaining to Robert Redford's role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. SPOILER ALERT.

So as early as now, I'm already saying this, Redford will be the new Red Skull.

Early on the production of Marvel Studios' Captain America: The Winter Soldier, actor Robert Redford was quoted saying he plays the villain for the sequel.

This week, a spoilerific toy was spotted in Toyfair 2014... It was the Red Skull (Read more about it HERE)

MTV added this comment on the inclusion of the Red Skull:

"What makes this figure suspect, though, is that it's positioned as part of the main action figure line, specifically for the sequel."

The second biggest information that practically confirms this thread comes from the musical scoring for the film. Cosmicbooknews reports that there is a bit of music in the original score for CA: TWS that goes by "Alexander Pierce is the Red Skull". (Source)

Remember this was the same with which some people found out about the appearance of Chris Evans' Steve Rogers/ Captain America in THOR: THE DARK WORLD. So there's some truth to it.

Finally, isn't it obvious that Pierce is merely a placeholder for a similar character in the comics? I'm referring to Alexander Lukin who appeared all throughout Ed Brubaker's "Winter Soldier" arc in Captain America.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 2 from Walt Disney Studios Philippines and Columbia Pictures.
