I dont know Venom, despite being poorly portrayed for the most part, came accross more sadistic and menacing in the final battle in SM3 than Skull did in his final battle. I mean, RS got the better of the fight IMO and still resorted to using a gun, he just didnt seem a threat at all.

Well again, I agree about the first confrontation, I remember in the cinema being really excited to see another one between them, and being really dissapointed when it came. This didnt change on subsequent viewings unfortunately like it did with Thor. I have grown to like the final confrontation in Thor despite finding it slightly underwhelming in the cinema.

Also, this could be another case were Marvels strict 2 hour rule for its blockbusters has a detrimental effect, at the same time though, I think we got plenty of Skull in the movie, but in my view he was just poorly represented. Which makes it all the more dissapointing when you consider who was playing him.

I loved the tone in Cap, and wouldnt have changed it, I just would have liked the Red Skull himself to be a bit edgier.

Yeah, i'm sure he has been through a few hardships and cruelties were ever he has been which will make him all the more sadistic hopefully.
