**Warning Potential Spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War**
Hugo Weaving’s Red Skull from Captain America: The First Avenger is expected to cameo in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War movie.
As you might remember, Red Skull was defeated by Captain America at the end of the movie. Captain America foiled Red Skull’s plan to drop Tessaract-powered bombs on major cities throughout the United States. While fighting Red Skull, Captain America launches his shield towards Weaving’s Red Skull which makes it a direct hit. Red Skull is thrown backwards into the machine holding the Tesseract. With the Tesseract now out in the open, Red Skull lifts it up and is shown a vision of the cosmos. The Tesseract then appears to attack Red Skull as a giant blue beam fires up into the cosmos. After Red Skull vanishes, the Tesseract falls through the belly of the plane and into the ocean below.
We would later find out that the Tesseract is the Space Stone and can be used to transport beings across the galaxy. Loki uses the Tesseract to return to Earth in the opening scene from The Avengers.
It appears Red Skull has been stranded in space since World War II after his fight with Captain America. It’s unclear what role he will play, but if Marvel is even briefly showing the Red Skull that could mean major implications for the Marvel Cinematic Universe moving forward. It’s possible with Red Skull’s return we could also see the Cosmic Cube come into play in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Cosmic Cubes are some of the most powerful items in the Marvel Universe. They allow their wielders to reshape reality to fit their own vision. In fact, the Cosmic Cube first appeared in Tales of Suspense #79 which also featured the Red Skull’s return.
With the Red Skull’s potential return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe could we also see the Cosmic Cube?
