Hugo Weaving's Red Skull Unleashed!

Posted by Grey Saturday, March 5, 2011

We have earlier had a glimpse all too brief at Hugo Weaving's villainous turn as the Red Skull. Courtesy of, check out the recently unveiled picture of the Red Skull for a closer look at the face of evil.

Early last month at the Super Bowl, we finally have a brief glimpse at Hugo Weaving's villainous as the infamous Nazi supervillain, Red Skull, in the first trailer for Captain America: The First Avenger.

In an exclusive interview with director of the film, Joe Johnston, also brought us the first full-frontal view of the nefarious villain. Complete in his Hydra uniform in a move perhaps to avoid any likely anti-Semitic sentiment, Hugo Weaving's Red Skull is by far the most outstanding supervillain we have seen thus far for a year overloaded with superhero films.

Interestingly, it was revealed in the article that Johann Schmidt, the alter ego of Red Skull, was in fact the recipient of the Nazi version of the experiment that turned puny Steve Rogers into Captain America. Reportedly, the effects of the experiments tapped into the inner nature of the candidate. So while Steve Rogers got turned in a mega-hunk, Schmidt became a hideous monstrosity.

While we don't quite fancy this little revision to the Captain America mythos, perhaps the presentation of this plot would eventually turned out to be much better than how it sounded on paper. Yes, that's how optimistic we are on this one. Anyway, check out the official plot synopsis of the film, right after the jump.

Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige will produce CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER. Alan Fine, Stan Lee, David Maisel and Louis D’Esposito will executive produce. The film will be released in the US on July 22, 2011 and distributed by Paramount Pictures.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER will focus on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America.

Born during the Great Depression, Steve Rogers grew up a frail youth in a poor family. Horrified by the newsreel footage of the Nazis in Europe, Rogers was inspired to enlist in the army. However, because of his frailty and sickness, he was rejected. Overhearing the boy’s earnest plea, General Chester Phillips offered Rogers the opportunity to take part in a special experiment… Operation: Rebirth. After weeks of tests, Rogers was at last administered the Super-Solider Serum and bombarded by “vita-rays.” Steve Rogers emerged from the treatment with a body as perfect as a body can be and still be human. Rogers was then put through an intensive physical and tactical training program. Three months later, he was given his first assignment as Captain America. Armed with his indestructible shield and battle savvy, Captain America has continued his war against evil both as a sentinel of liberty and as leader of the Avengers.
