Skull's connection to the Cube and to Earth would have been a very believable reason why Loki's attention would be on Earth in the first place. Plus, it would have opened things up nicely for Schmidt to return for CA:TWS (which could still happen).

But Whedon comments further in that interview that he scrapped the second villain because Marvel "didn't want to add mythology," which makes me think maybe it wasn't the Red Skull after all.
Good guess. I've always suspected Red Skull was actually transported to the same section of the galaxy as Thanos at the end of CATFA, and that Skully would be granted superpowers by Thanos and team up with him at some point.

Abomination is a good guess, too....I'm not sure, but I vaguely remember early rumors (untrue, of course) that William Hurt would be in Avengers, so it's not beyond the realm of the pale that they planned on bringing Tim Roth back, too. But I wonder if there would be any need for Joss to be secretive about that? It's not like Abomination was a "secret character."
