They've chosen the villain!

Marvel Studios is in talks with actor Hugo Weaving to play Red Skull in the upcoming Captain America movie directed by Joe Johnston.

In the comics, Red Skull was Hitler's right-hand man and Captain America's enemy since 1941.

Negotiations should begin in the next few days and if Weaving signs on it will reunite him with Johnston since they worked together on The Wolfman.

Weaving plays a good bad guy so we think he's a really good choice — remember, he played Agent Smith in the Matrix films!

What do U think?

    Good choice BUT i think Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds) would of been perfect

    HUGO IS THE PERFECT VILLAIN! THEY CHOSE RIGHT! AGENT SMITH, V, AND THIS CHARACTER ARE AWESOME. BUT I DID THOUGHT IT WAS STING FOR A SECOND THERE.

    So with Neil Fifer turning down Marvel's crap pay offer to play CA… who are they going to insult next?



  12. 12

    Not in The Full Monty - that's totally British. However he was the counterpart to Cate Blanchett as head of the Elves in LOTR (was also him in the first battle scene). Go Aussies!

    I thought that it was Sting….
    I love him.



  14. 14

    He's not in the Full Monty. He's an aussie.. He's in Pricsilla Queen Of The Desert!! LOOOOOVES IT!!

    Hugo Weaving is incredible and awesome. That is all.

    @PeaBeu and @mattylp - Sorry, there was a Hugo Speer in "The Full Monty" who funnily resembles Weaving. Mattylp, you're right he was in "Priscilla Queen of the Desert."

    Hugo Weaving is a fukkin' chameleon. If he gets the role he will own it!

    Look at Red Skull (comic pic) and then look at Hugo Weaving. He is perfect.
