There's something I'm desperately waiting for Marvel movies to use again.
There will be, at some point, an EPIC Hugo Weaving reveal, as the Red Skull returns. Everyone (including Captain America, who saw it happen) thinks the Red Skull touched the Tesseract and was disintegrated.
..... but that's not what happened. You won't see that special effect again until TWO MOVIES LATER, and it's not called out when it happens. No connection is made by the characters, but the visual FX are *absolutely identical*.
The Red Skull does not vanish because the Tesseract disintegrates him. He touches the Tesseract and disappears in a vertical beam, shimmering in all the colours of visible light. That's not disintegration.
That's a bridge. A rainbow bridge. The Red Skull is carried off by BIFROST.
And oh yes, he's coming back.

I have been waiting for this reveal for FOREVER.
It is SUCH an easy death to walk back. I mean, it is the Red Skull, they don't even need to use Hugo Weaving's face.
Captain Marvel reveal maybe?
I expect it will be a stinger on, like, Black Panther or Infinity War. Minimal shooting time, maximum "HOLY SHIT GIVE ME THE NEXT MOVIE GIVE GIVE GIIIIIIIIIIIIIVE" factor.
I have been wondering if it was ever going to happen.
