One of the most interesting scenes of last year’s blockbuster, Infinity War, was the scene that included the archenemy of Captain America, Red Skull. This finally solved a nearly decade long question that the fans wanted to be answered.
Red Skull was shown as the guide for all those who sought the Soul Stone. He was there to inform the people who came there to retrieve the Stone that the Stone demanded something in return. Turns out Thanos was ready to pay the heavy price and threw Gamora off the cliff. The Soul Stone deemed his sacrifice worthy and he was granted the Stone.
A Reddit user has noticed something interesting right in this scene. Right after Gamora is sacrificed, a portal is opened right above Thanos. This portal does bear some resemblance to the one that banished Red Skull off to Vormir in the first Captain America movie. This theorist argues that this portal transferred Red Skull back to where he belonged, Earth.
Even the Directors in an online Q&A session revealed that Red Skull was free of the duty towards the Soul Stone and he could now pursue whatever he wished. They mentioned that he could resume his quest to get an Infinity Stone or even worse, he could go after them all.
There’s a theory that Red Skull would appear again in Avengers Endgame when the Avengers journey towards Vormir to destroy the Soul Stone. Who knows, we could have a Captain America vs Red Skull duel over there. Given the fact that both of them have survived for so long, I think it would be subtle to let Red Skull die at the hands of Captain America. This win could also account as a closure of Cap’s arc.
