A Better Photo of Hugo Weaving as Red Skull in 'Captain America'!
When the first bit of footage for Marvel's comic book adaptation Captain America: The First Avenger premiered during the Super Bowl, we were finally given our first brief glimpse at Hugo Weaving as Cap's arch nemesis Red Skull. Of course there were mixed feelings, but that shot was very quick and the image wasn't the best angle to see the villain for the first time. But now EW has released a fantastic official image from the film that shows the weapons developer Johann Schmidt completely transformed into the villain we know as Red Skull. I'm definitely getting excited for the July 22nd theatrical release! See full photo below.
Marvel's Captain America: The First Avenger is directed by Joe Johnston, who previously directed Honey I Shrunk the Kids, The Rocketeer, Jumanji, October Sky, Jurassic Park III, Hidalgo and The Wolf Man. The screenplay was written by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely (writers of Life & Death of Peter Sellers, You Kill Me and all three Chronicles of Narna movies, from Lion, Witch, Wardrobe to Dawn Treader) and also Joss Whedon. Paramount is bringing Captain America to theaters starting on July 22nd this summer. Thoughts?
