Red Guardian and Captain America Origin Story

Black Widow isn’t David Harbour‘s first superhero rodeo, not if you count his starring role in the 2019 Hellboy reboot.

Among them is Stranger Things star David Harbour as the patriarchal figure Alexei Alanovich Shostakov, who took on the mantle of Russian superhero Red Guardian.
