Hugo Weaving CONFIRMED As Captain America Villain!

| Filed under: AnglophiliaFilm Flickers


After much speculation, it's been confirmed!

Captain America has his nemesis!

British actor Hugo Weaving will be taking the villainous role as The Red Skull in the film adaptation of Captain America: The First Avenger! Chris Evans and Hayley Atwell are so far the only other actors confirmed for the project, and Joe Johnston has taken the helm as director.

We think he's going to seriously bring it! He kicked ass in V For Vendetta and The Lord of the Rings!

    Well since Hugo is going to appear on film wearing a Nazi uniform that must make him a Neo-Nazi racist pig.

    Hugo is Australian

    Hugo Weaving is AUSTRALIAN!!!! Surely, Perez, you should know this since he starred in one of your all time favourite movies - The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. IDIOT!

    so according to what u have posted in the past, if he puts that suit on he is a nazi, or is it okay to play dress up for a film

    Re: SpaceCaddie – -
    are you kidding? Perez is so out of the loop he probably doesn't even realize Hugo was in Priscilla - though I'm sure he goes on like he wrote the movie.
    You are a trend FOLLOWER, Perez - not a trend SETTER. As a result you will always be a fat, sad wannabe of a hanger-on.

    Not to mention he was Agent Smith. The best movie villain EVER.

    Um… okay guys, could you please stop bashing Perez on every single page he writes? Some of you must be really tired of yourselves if you keep on doing this. ;)
    By the way, there is nothing strange about saying that someone is wrong when they are wearing a friggin nazi uniform in their spare time. Especially when you're a celebrity, that gives a bad example. However, this nazi is an obvious VILLAIN. So no! Nothing terribly wrong with that one! Duh!

  30. 30

    He's an Aussie - that's like saying you are Chinese!!!

  31. 31

    I think he'll be amazing as the villain, I loved him as Agent Smith. This would make me want to see this movie.

  32. 32

    Re: RP1991 – If you live near that school, you must live near me. What a small world. And yes, Hugo is Australian.

  33. 33

    He resembles Sam Neil, another Aussie.
