After years in prison, the Red Guardian‘s return (David Harbour) was quite a struggle – to the point of becoming a recurring joke in Black Widow.
During a virtual event for the film on Monday (19), Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige recalled a moment when Harbour got stuck in the character’s costume for real, just as it happened in fiction – and of course, he couldn’t help but reveal that story to fans.
“During the shooting of Alexei getting changed into his Red Guardian suit, there was one take where he actually got stuck inside the suit and had to call for help to get out. The shot even made it into the movie,” Feige tweeted.

The character seems to be here to stay, with the huge success he is making among fans. Previously, Harbour also revealed to Variety that he would love the Red Guardian to appear more often.
“I love the character, there’s so many things you could do with him. There’s this gap of 25 years where we don’t know who was he, what is his version of events as opposed to the actual version of events?” he explained.
Harbour further added that he wonders why the character doesn’t attend the battle against Thanos and about a future after Natasha Romanoff’s death.
“It’s very interesting to me, and I hope that there is interest on other levels, and maybe we’ll see some more.“
