And you make it sound like "liberal nutball activist" is a hobby he just recently picked up. He's been an up-front outspoken political activist since the 1960s, and his politics haven't hurt *any* of the dozens of movies he's been part of for the last 50 years.

Trust me: no one needs to trust you about this at all.
Don't kill the messenger. I'm going to pay to see it over ten times no matter what.

Love or hate Fox News they get high ratings for a reason. A lot of people will not give money to a film with a Redford or a Sean Penn any more. They have crossed the line on too many fronts. Lions For Lambs is a good example. Big cast but a big box office tank. This isn't average politics we're taking about. This is ultra-extremists and Marvel really should stay clear of it no matter if it's right wing or left wing. "The Company You Keep" (Redford's new film) is taking a lot of heat... rightfully so in this case.
