Red Skull to Return in ‘Captain America 3’

“Captain America 3” helmers Anthony and Joe Russo talk about the possibility of bringing back the Red Skull for the three-quel of the pic. Read on for further details.

According to, in an interview with AMC Movie Talk, helmers Russo brothers talk about the possibility of having the Red Skull back for the third installment of the action pic “Captain America.”


“I think we heard that prior to our involvement with the project. I think we heard that they may have had that conversation at one point, but we weren’t around for it, so it’s hard for us to comment on it,” said Anthony via

Meanwhile, Joe explained that Red Skull was not fir for “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” stating that the film focused on the destruction of S.H.I.E.L.D. HYDRA was Red Skull’s legacy. However, the helmer further noted that “his legacy outlived the skull,” and they were trying to come into terms with its demons.

The Red Skull is a long-time enemy of Captain America, a proud Nazi and leader of HYDRA. He was central villain in the film “Captain America: The First Avenger,” played by Hugo Weaving. Created by editor Joe Simon, Jack Kirby, and scripter Ed Herron, Red Skull is the very first super villain within Marvel Comics, displayed as a villain who strongly resembled oppression and totalitarianism — the total opposite of what Captain America stands for.

“Captain America 3” is the third installment of the “Captain America” franchise, which stars Chris Evans as the star-spangled titular Captain America and is part of MCU’s phase three project along with “Ant-Man,” “Doctor Strange” and “Guardians of the Galaxy 2.” It is directed by the Russo brothers, Anthony and Joe. “Captain America 3” will hit the theaters on May 6, 2016.

And that’s it for the latest update on “Captain America 3,” with the Red Skull to possibly return for the third installment. For more details on this movie, stay tuned here on Movie News Guide (MNG).
