Harrison Ford is finding it “tough” to fill the shoes of William Hurt in the MCU.
The 80-year-old actor replaced Hurt as General Thaddeus Ross in the upcoming installment of Captain America starring Anthony Mackie in the titular role, New World Order, after the latter died of prostrate cancer last year.
Speaking to Esquire about his experience on the set of the film, the Indiana Jones actor revealed, “There are tough days and easy days and fun days and all kinds of days.
“It’s a tough schedule and, yeah, it’s fun. But it’s not a walk in the park. It’s not fun fun. It’s work,” he added.
The president of Marvel, Kevin Feige previously dished on his reason behind casting Ford in the character of Ross.
He said: [Ross is] the President of the United States in the film. And with Harrison, you think about Air Force One, and you think about some of his confrontations with the president in Clear and Present Danger.”
Touching on the dynamic between Ford’s character and the new Captain America, Sam Wilson, Feige noted. “They have a history together, but in this film, we’ll be seeing the dynamic between Captain America and the President of the United States in a way that is just incredible.”
