Details regarding how Red Skull originally was going to look in Avengers: Infinity War have been revealed.
Red Skull turning up during Infinity War was certainly one of the surprises of the film, with the plot revealing that he has been guarding the Soul Stone, which has had damaging effects on him.
In Marvel’s The Art of Avengers: Infinity War (via ComicBook.com), there are examples of how the new look Red Skull might appear, with one of the designs bearing a striking resemblance to Ghost Rider.
Senior visual development illustrator Rodney Fuentebella also commented on the process of bringing Red Skull back: “We learned pretty early on that Red Skull was going to be returning. I was so excited to work on this character that has been pivotal in the MCU. I was playing with how early the audience should know that this character–previously called the Stonekeeper in the script–is the Red Skull.
“I designed versions hiding his face and versions showing how much life or soul the stone took from him. I wanted to play with the idea of what the Soul Stone had done to him and whether he is a ghostlike being now or something soulless.”
