According to a report from Twitch, Chin Han will be one of four members of  the mysterious video conference council from The Avengers (2012). They’ll be reporting to Robert Redford‘s character, high-flying SHIELD agent Alexander Pierce. The other three roles have gone to Jenny Agutter, Alan Dale and Bernard White.

It’s unclear as of yet exactly what his role involves, but much props to Chin Han. This is his second comic book movie after his role as the money launderer Lau in The Dark Knight (2008), and he’s also made several appearances in the Arrow TV series as businessman Frank Chen. His geek credentials can only be bolstered further by this new role.

Meanwhile, Bleeding Cool reported that some images of Sebastian Stan – who played Bucky in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) – in his Winter Soldier costume have appeared on the website of The Plain Dealer. This is a local paper in Cleveland, Ohio, where the film is currently shooting on location.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is set for release in Singapore on April 3, 2014.
