So, something that was lost in all this is that Hugo Weaving also kinda threw Captain America under the bus as well. Here's a link to Weaving's actual interview
, but specifically on appearing in Captain America sequels:
I think the tendency, with those films, would be to probably not bring a villain back. They might for The Avengers, but I didnít think Iíd be in Captain America 2 or 3. I donít think Red Skull will be there. And itís not something I would want to do again. Iím 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 wouldnít want to force someone to do it, if they didnít want to. I think Iíve done my dash with that sort of film. It was good to do it and try it out, but to be honest, itís not the sort of film I seek out and really am excited by.
