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!

But we though John Krasinski had it in the bag!
Sources have confirmed that Ryan Phillippe is the latest actor to be considered for the lead role in The First Avenger: Captain America.
Hugo Weaving has been cast as the villain Red Skull and JKras has reportedly shot a screen test with other Marvel Universe actors, but no deal has been made as of yet.
Are U rooting for John or Ryan to take on the character?

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?
