Filmmakers Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, who directed this year's hit Captain America: The Winter Soldier, hinted back in August that Red Skull, played by Hugo Weaving in 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger, may return for Captain America 3. Obviously, that report came a few months before Marvel announced their full Phase Three slate, which will kick off with Captain America: Civil War. During an interview for his new film The Mule, Hugo Weaving revealed that he has not been contacted about appearing in the Marvel Phase Three sequel, or any other Marvel movie.
"I have absolutely no idea. I haven't talked to anyone about it, so yeah, we'll just have to wait and see. No idea at all."
Of course, Captain America: The First Avenger was set in the 1940s, and it isn't known how Red Skull would be inserted into a modern-day story. However, the actor did reveal in 2012 that he has signed a multi-picture deal with Marvel, but he hasn't appeared in any other movies. We reported earlier this month that Daniel Brühl has been cast as the main villain, with some speculating that he could be a different version of Red Skull.
