Hugo Weaving Unsure About Red Skull Return

Back in 2012, Hugo Weaving, who played the villainous Johann Schmidt a.k.a. the Red Skull in Captain America: The First Avenger, confirmed that he had in fact signed a multi-picture deal with Marvel, which is fairly commonplace for most Marvel actors. Even though Weaving admitted that he is probably contractually obligated to return if asked, he said he wasn't likely to return for any potential Captain America sequels, which was proven true when he didn't appear in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, saying it wasn't the type of role he was looking to do again even though he did enjoy his experience on the first film.

While promoting his upcoming drama, The Mule, Weaving was asked about potentially returning as the Red Skull in the recently announced Captain America: Civil War. Based on his comments, it doesn't seem likely: "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." Seems fairly conclusive, doesn't it? Or could he be hiding something like Paul Rudd was before he was officially announced as Ant-Man?

The recent news of Marvel casting Daniel Brühl as one of Civil War's villians has sparked rumors that he might be replacing Weaving as the Red Skull or possibly bringing someone like Baron Zemo to life.
