As we approach the tenth anniversary of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there are still some mysteries from the past decade that have yet to be solved.
One such mystery has been the fate of Captain America’s greatest foe, Red Skull. The last we saw of Red Skull was in 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger, where Red Skull – played by Hugo Weaving – was seemingly vaporized by the Tesseract, which we now know as the Space Stone. Since then, fans have long debated the fate of Red Skull.
That debate will surely continue now with the release of the prequel comic for the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. In the comic, we revisit the moment where Red Skull supposed demise takes place.
This panel fuels some fans’ theories that Red Skull may have been warped into space thanks to the Tesseract. With all of the possible cosmic ramifications that could come from Avengers: Infinity War, it’s very possible that Marvel may use the events of the film as a backdoor for the return of the Hydra leader if they want to use him in the future.
Avengers: Infinity War blasts into theaters on May 4.
