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.
