It moves on the side of Marvel. Hugo Weaving has been recalled to the bar to embody the Red Skull, the super-villain to whom he had lent his face in Captain America : The First Avenger
Remember, it was in 2011, the MCU would soon close its first phase and Captain America came in for the first time, since of very many years, thanks to Captain America : The First Avenger Joe Johnston.
A battle to the death between Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, and HYDRA was raging on the background of the Second world War. At the head of the organization malicious : the Red Skull, played by Hugo Weaving. This is the only time that the villain appeared in the films of the MCU. Clever, the writers – instead of killing – were sent to languish the Red Skull in the Tesseract (finally in Vormir), thus allowing for its possible return.
And in the role of the big bad red : Hugo Weaving
The actor, not being embarrassed to say, oh, so he was disappointed of her role, her makeup, her prosthetic… his return was thwarted. The villain was not visible from the Marvel universe until his brief appearance in Avengers : Infinity War , but in the guise of Ross Marquand.
If the brothers Russo would like to see come back Hugo Weawing in the role, it would seem that the main party does not want to. It is in any case what has been suggested by Joe Russo and Anthony Russo in a questions-answers session organized by Collider. For the time being, the future of the Red Skull is a mystery, the new performer Ross Marquand does not know him-even if the character will appear in Avengers 4.
It is no longer a prisoner of Vormir, and the brothers Russo had previously confirmed that he could now travel freely. Given the magnitude of the threat that weighs on the Red Skull in the comics of Marvel for over 70 years, it would not be surprising that it continues to play a role in the MCU. Now the question is which one and when ?
The release of’Avengers 4 to April 14, 2019 may-be we set.
