Danai Gurira Wasn’t The Only Walking Dead Star In New Avengers Movie


During the hiatus between Season 8 and Season 9 of The Walking Dead, series fans are looking for their favorite zombie-slayers in alternate roles. Fans knew to look for Danai Gurira (a.k.a. Michonne) in the latest Marvel blockbuster, but there was actually another zombie-killer hidden by makeup and perhaps a little CGI.

There are plenty of shocking moments in Avengers: Infinity War, but the return of Captain America’s foe Red Skull, was yet another shock for fans. However, the Red Skull was portrayed by a different actor. Originally, Huge Weaving (The Matrix, V for Vendetta) portrayed the villain. This time, however, Ross Marquand stepped up.

In the movie, Red Skull had been banished to plant Vormir to guard the Soul Stone. Most fans didn’t notice Marquand as the man behind the mask.
