One of the movie's biggest surprises sees Red Skull return some 70+ years after his disappearance, trapped on the planet Vormir as the keeper of the mysterious Soul Stone.

It's a great cameo for the character - who is now played by Ross Marquand, after Hugo Weaving's much-publicised displeasure at his experience - but his ultimate fate is still left open.

It could be that the character is now simply done, freed of his burden and able to pass on. However, there's also a chance the character's journey isn't over yet, and that his cameo here sets up an even bigger role in the sequel, where he could face off against Steve Rogers one last time.
