Captain America Adds Arnim Zola to the Roster of Bad Guys

10 Comments

Apparently The Red Skull (who will be played by Hugo Weaving) won’t be the only super Nazi menace that Captain America will be facing in Joe Johnston’s upcoming “The First Avenger: Captain America”. THR reports that British actor Toby Jones is in final negotiations to play the villain Arnim Zola, a genetic engineer who worked under the Red Skull for the Nazis, and who eventually created a new body for himself.

It’s doubtful if Zola will get his new body in the first movie, as he might just be a secondary villain hiding out in a lab while the Red Skull does all the action. With all the cameos that “Captain America” is promising, it would probably be a bit much to have two villains for the good Captain to battle the first time around.

“Captain America” stars Chris Evans as Captain America, Sebastian Stan as his sidekick Bucky Barnes, and Hayley Atwell as Cap’s WWII fling, Peggy Carter. The film is scheduled for 2011, and will lead into “The Avengers” movie.

Oh, those wacky Nazis and their wacky experiments.

    AWWWWW you got me by two days also!!!! Aint that crazy, we just got finished talking about this guy and look!!!!! I think he'll work so long as he's just more of a background character.

    I know right. I think he should be afull human in the film or at least mostly, and then for part two we'll get the tv in the stomach version.

    LOL! Yeah, he can't just show up already like that.

    he should be the one to come up with the Nazi version of the super soldier serum. Have him come up with it after getting a blood sample from Cap, and because it's already grafted to his cells it's different, and when thye try to use it on Schidt, it backfires, causing his facial issues and an explosion that almost kills Zola.

    LOL! That would be funny too, Zola almost dying then mutilizing himself turning himself into the monsterous machine he became would coincide well with that.
