Agent Sitwell is one of the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents charged with handling Steve Rogers, who works closely with Nick Fury in the comics to monitor the underground activities of Bucky Barnes, AKA the Winter Soldier. Actor Maximiliano Hernandez revealed the following about his character via Twitter:
“So, it’s a much bigger role in a much darker Captain America story, Lots of twists and turns, And lots secrets about the Marvel Cinematic Universe revealed! I can’t say much more or the Marvel cops will revoke my S.H.I.E.L.D. clearance. Trust me you will all freak out in the theatre when all is revealed.”
The Winter Soldier comic book story arc is part of Ed Brubaker’s acclaimed run. However, Hernandez says to expect “new twists” rather than those in Brubaker’s arc.
