New Captain America Pic: Hugo Weaving’s The Red Skull Strikes a Pose


A new pic from Joe Johnston’s “Captain America: The First Avenger”, showing off Hugo Weaving as the Red Skull looking incredibly, well, red-“faced” and all clad in dangerous looking black leather. Now that is one dude you don’t want to mess with. I mean, he has a skull for a face!

By the way, I totally love the way Johnston answers the question about the film’s title being changed to just “The First Avenger” in some parts of the world where, apparently, having “America” in a movie title is seen as not such a good thing. Johnson replies:

There was some concern [the name] Captain America will not play in certain countries. If it were up to me I wouldn’t thread the needle so carefully. I’d call it Captain America, since that’s what it is.

Good man, Joe. Good man.

“The First Avenger” takes off July 22, 2011, and stars Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving, Stanley Tucci, Tommy Lee Jones, Hayley Atwell, Richard Armitage, Sebastian Stan, Dominic Cooper, Natalie Dormer, Neal McDonough, Toby Jones, and JJ Feild.

    Nice outfit!!. I like his look in general, but they need to work a bit the texture of the head. It looks… I dunno… kind of make-up done.

      It’s just a pic. It doesn’t have proper lighting and such. I’m sure it will look less makeup-y. Look at the first pic we saw from the trailer.

  • Juggernaut

  • YEE!

    That’s the symbol for Hydra, the Nazi group made by hitler to take down Cap.

    I can’t believe I’m actually looking at a real live action RED SKULL done right! Looks great just needs a little gloss on the head to make it shine, the head looks too dry.
