When the Captain America: The Winter Soldier trailer first hit, one of the weirdest things for me was watching Robert Redford and Nick Fury shake hands. And everybody was talking about The Sundance Kid (Redford's classic role alongside Paul Newman--kids, ask your parents) being in the cast of the film. But it struck me: I wonder if that could literally be the case?
In life as in the film (and sorry about spoilers, but Jesus, it's historical and the film's been out since 1969), Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid were both likely killed by the Bolivian Army in 1908. But there's been loads of speculation as to whether or not they actually died there. There's more than one theory out there about one or both of them surviving. (See the film Blackthorn for a fairly badass "Butch survived" setup.)
