Ross Marquand Says He’d Jump At The Chance To Return To Marvel (Exclusive)

The living Dead star Ross Marquand would love the chance to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the future. The Aaron actor replaced Hugo Weaving as The Red Skull in 2018 Avengers: Infinite War and that of 2019 Avengers: endgame, who appears as the gatekeeper of the Soul Stone on the planet Vormir. Hugo Weaving’s Red Skull clashed with Chris Evans’ Captain America in 2011 Captain America: The First Revenger. After Weaving and Marvel couldn’t agree on a contract, the studio turned to Marquand. Marquand spoke everything Marvel stood for on the red carpet The living Dead finale, where the subject of a Red Skull return was broached.

ComicBook.com’s Brandon Davis caught up with Ross Marquand and asked if he would ever return to Marvel. “I can’t confirm or deny that,” he said. “But I’d love to jump at the chance. I’m a comic book guy.” Previously, Marquand also compared what it’s like to act in The Walking Dead Universe and the MCU. Marquand joined The living Dead in 2014 after being a fan for several years. In addition to the motion capture work for Red Skull, the actor also voiced Ultron What if… ? and Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness.

Why Hugo Weaving is no longer the red skull

In a surprise move, Marvel Studios brought back Captain America villain Red Skull in a new role Avengers: Infinite War and Avengers: endgame. The character first appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: The First Avenger played by Hugo Weaving. The Hydra scientist tampered with the Tesseract’s power and the Space Stone repaid him by teleporting him to Vormir. But Weaving didn’t play Red Skull in the Avengers movies. Instead, Ross Marquand took over the character in his new role as guardian of the Soul Stone.

In an interview with Time-out in 2020, Weaving explained why he didn’t return to the role in the two Avengers movies, claiming that Marvel Studios was trying to hedge against the deal made when he first signed on to play the villain. “Oh, yeah. I loved playing that Red Skull character — it was a lot of fun,” says Weaving. “We were all required to enter three photos: I was thinking [Red Skull] probably wouldn’t get into it again Captain America but he may very well come back as a villain The Avengers. By then they had reversed the contracts we had agreed upon and thus the money they offered me for The Avengers was much less than I got for the very first one, and this was for two movies. And the promise when we first signed the contracts was that the money would grow every time. They said, it’s just a voice job, it’s okay. I found negotiating with them through my agent virtually impossible. And I didn’t really want to do it that much. But I would have.”
