Hugo Weaving Doesn't Want to Play Red Skull Again

Captain America: The First Avenger's Hugo Weaving recently spoke quite candidly about the prospect of returning as Red Skull in future Captain America or Marvel films.

In a chat with Collider, Weaving said of the possibility of reprising his villain role in the future, "I think the tendency, with those films, would be to probably not bring a villain back. They might for The Avengers, but I didn’t think I’d be in Captain America 2 or 3. I don’t think Red Skull will be there. And it’s not something I would want to do again. I’m glad I did it. I did sign up for a number of pictures and I suppose, contractually, I would be obliged to, if they forced me to, but they wouldn’t want to force someone to do it, if they didn’t want to."

The story is too old to be commented.

Considering the face...I don't think it would matter as long as it was a good actor.

true but the voice theres got to be a matching voice but then again in a world where anything is possible im not looking to ground the idea to reality as we know it

I liked Red Skull, I really did but don't believe they should bring him back. It should be somebody else.

Did he say the same thing about his role in The Matrix? I wonder if something rubbed him the wrong way when filming Captain America: The First Avenger.

Yea, I would think the movie itself rubbed him the wrong way. He had no role. No acting oppurtunity.. and the movie pretty much sucked. Love the marvel movies, but that movie was boring as shit.

Never liked his attempt at the accent, plus he just wasn't badass enough either.

Good news is that he can be re-cast and a simple explanation could be that when he was "sucked into" the Tesseract, it changed him. Problem solved.

Just bring back the Red Skull soon please.

Kurtwood Smith should play him. Then he really would be "Red".
