Harrison Ford has revealed he faced a “tough schedule” when filming Captain America: New World Order.

The acting legend will assume the role of Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film, and spoke of his experience on the set of the superhero film.

“Yeah. I mean, there are tough days and easy days and fun days and all kinds of days,” he told Esquire. “It’s a tough schedule and, yeah, it’s fun. But it’s not a walk in the park. It’s not fun fun. It’s work.”

Ross was previously played by the late William Hurt in the MCU, appearing in five films across the franchise, and Marvel chief Kevin Feige revealed that the former general will be the President in New World Order.

“With Harrison, you think about Air Force One, and you think about some of his confrontations with the president in Clear and Present Danger. There's a dynamic between President Ross and Sam Wilson,” he said.

“They have a history together, but in this film, we'll be seeing the dynamic between Captain America and the president of the United States in a way that is just incredible.”

Before Ford assumes the role of the Avengers’ adversary, he will make his final appearance as famed adventurer Indiana Jones in The Dial of Destiny, which will be released later this month.

“I just thought it would be nice to see one where Indiana Jones was at the end of his journey,” he said of playing the character one last time. “f a script came along that I felt gave me a way to extend the character.

“It became really important to me to figure out how to make this a movie about a hero at sunset. It’s full of adventure, full of laughs, full of real emotion. And it’s complex and it’s sneaky. The shooting of it was tough and long and arduous. But I’m very happy with the film that we have,” he added.

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is released in UK cinemas on June 28 and in US cinemas on June 30. Captain America: New World Order has been officially confirmed. Meanwhile, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is streaming exclusively on Disney+.
