Hugo Weaving Finally Confirmed to Play Red Skull in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER

Marvel has sent out a press release confirming that Hugo Weaving will play the villain Red Skull in Captain America: The First Avenger. We reported in March that Weaving was in talks to play the role of the red-skulled Nazi. Some have been ambivalent about Chris Evans taking the title role, citing that the actor is too young and hasn't demonstrated the gravitas necessary for the part (my rebuttal to the latter point: Danny Boyle's Sunshine). But with Weaving, there can be no argument that he'll make a great antagonist.
