Marvel announces on its marvel.com website that film icon Robert Redford has joined the all-star cast as Agent Alexander Pierce, a senior leader within the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization.

Following Marvel Studios' release of "Marvel's The Avengers," production on the highly anticipated release, Marvel's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" has commenced in Los Angeles, California, with production also including locations in Cleveland, Ohio, and Washington D.C.

And the website dailysuperhero.com says the Lorain Avenue Bridge is one of the Cleveland locations for movie.

"The Daily SuperHero has acquired information from a source extremely close to the production confirming an actual shooting location for Captain America's sequel. The source has to remain anonymous, however, said that he/she will indeed have insider access for at least one on-set visit during the shoot in Cleveland."

"This location is the, and locally known as, Fairview Bridge (Lorain Ave. Bridge) just down the street from both the Fairview Hospital and Kamm's Plaza, along the city's border. The Daily SuperHero's source said shooting will happen on the bridge and a giant green screen will be placed on the side of the bridge so Marvel Studios can CG a background into the scene(s)."

"It seems to be implied that a New York City background will be put in place since Cap 2's story is speculated to take place in NYC. No date of the shoot was confirmed though. Finally, it was told to us that Marvel is still scouting locations in the Cleveland area right now."
