Actor Toby Jones has played a lot of interesting parts in his career, but definitely one that got a lot of fans excited was when he appeared as the Red Skull’s right hand man, Arnim Zola, in Captain America: The First Avenger. That was the ’40s incarnation of Zola where he was a scientist, but when it was announced Jones would be returning for the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier, fans of the Cap villain probably got more excited that we might see him in his more recognizable robotic form.
When we spoke with Jones earlier today about his creepy new thriller Berberian Sound Studio, he wouldn’t tell us how big a part he has in the new Cap movie, but he did give us a brief tease that fans of the character should be happy with the way that Zola is brought back.
“All I can say about it is that I was pleased to be brought back,” he told us. “I thought I might be–because you’d know better than I do–but Zola finds a way to defeat time and you won’t be disappointed with the way that’s been treated in the film, that’s what I would say.”
So yeah, Jones didn’t have a lot to say, but we probably can safely assume Zola’s going to have an interesting part in the “Winter Soldier” storyline and will be in his more common form after teasing it briefly in The First Avenger.
