Red Skull Isn\’t in Captain America: Civil War


red-skull-captain-america-first-avengerSeeing as how the Red Skull technically didn’t die at the end of Captain America: The First Avenger, fans have been wondering if or when he’ll return. The third Captain America movie is already being worked on, and despite a crowded cast of characters including Iron Man, Black Panther, Crossbones, and a mystery villain (possibly Baron Zemo) fans have been wanting Cap’s arch-nemesis back.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Hugo Weaving says there’s been no talk yet of Skull’s return:

“I have absolutely no idea,” Weaving said when asked if he’d be returning for Captain America: Civil War or possibly in another Marvel film. “I haven’t talked to anyone about it, so, yeah, we’ll just have to wait and see. No idea at all.”

As the Tesseract teleported Red Skull into space at the end of the first movie, maybe Marvel is saving his return for the cosmic two-parter of Avengers: Infinity War.
