In the upcoming long-awaited Disney/Marvel movie Black Widow we meet Natasha Romanoff’s paternal figure if you will, Alexei Shostakov, played by David Harbour. In his heyday, Alexei was the Soviet version of Captain America. This is talked about in the upcoming film.
Today, at a press conference for Black Widow, when asked whether he’d like to see such Captain America vs. Red Guardian story, Harbour exclaimed, “What’s funny about Alexei, you have this 25-year gap we don’t know about (in the movie). We see him in Ohio and in the prison. And even before the prison, there was a time when he was the Red Guardian, he must have put the suit back on. There is this period of time where he has all these stories about his life. It’s questionable whether or not they’re real.
