Hugo Weaving Confirmed as Red Skull in "Captain America"Submit Comment
We've known that Hugo Weaving (The Matrix, The Wolfman) has been in talk to play the main villain Johann Schmidt (aka Red Skull) in "The First Avenger: Captain America" for a while, but Marvel has now made the official announcement.

In the early comics, Johann Schmidt was drafted into loyal service of The Third Reich and renamed "The Red Skull." The character will be updated for the feature adaptation.

"Captain America" will focus on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America.

The new movie is directed by Joe Johnston (The Wolfman) and is scheduled to hit theaters on July 22nd, 2011.

As long as he's not some Italian guy with facial reconstructive surgery, like in the '91 movie, this should be awesome.

Joe Johnston is obviously doing something right (blowjobs on demand for Weaving). I am not complaining, though, as he is a talented actor and will be the best part of the movie.

Mel Gibson just confirmed for the part of Hitler
Randal Graves writes:

If Mel turns it down they could always get Will Smith to play Hitler.

How does Red Skull get the Red Skull in the first place?
Ranger writes:

Captain America beats him behind his skull with his shield whilst he yells: 'YEAH BITCH... ON YER KNEES AND WHIP ME SOME RED SKULL!!!'

THE SKIPPY SPARTAN-at first it was a mask, but when that Red Skull died (from accelerated old age) his brain was put in a clone of Steve Rogers. he then mutilated his face to look like Red Skull.

in the Ultimate Universe ... he cuts off his face.

Hey Ranger, what WP should do is put up user reviews for actors. Then we'll see alot more of you saying the best things about Lohslut.

Now I have a reson to watch this movie, Hugo Weaving is a bad mothef*cker, the chancellor from V for Vendetta should play Hitler

hugo is definitely good to be red skull. can't wait til this movie comes out
DetroitFanRick writes:
on May 5th, 2010 at 11:03:58 PM

I'm starting to think he's got some clause or contract out there that says he gets first refusal on playing any part where you don't get to see the character's face.

Hmmmm....a CGI Red Skull with his voice? Might up the coolness and creepiness factor.
Man in Black writes:
on May 5th, 2010 at 11:49:13 PM

@ Detroit i think if he shaved that dome of his he looks like they pulled him straight out of the marvel U . good cast shouldnt need much if any cgi for the character IMO
