First Look: Hugo Weaving As Red Skull In ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’

New Concept Art Hits the Internets
Back in July we got our first look a new concept art from Captain America: The First Avenger that showed us was actor Chris Evans would look like in costume as the superhero star. Today we get to see new concept art that shows us what actor Hugo Weaving will look like as the villainous arch-nemesis Red Skull.

We have yet to see what Hugo Weaving will look like as The Red Skull, but this may be our first glimpse as these concept designs have gone online. I have confirmation that this is indeed official concept art for Red Skull. But there is a bit of hulabaloo brewing about them being leaked so I’m not sure how long this will stay up. Captain America: The First Avenger hits theatres July 22, 2011
Ever since we learned that Hugo Weaving won the role of Johann Schmidt/Red Skull last May, I knew he would be PERFECT for the role. This concept art makes Red Skull look very much like he does in the comic book series, which IMHO is very important. To be honest, I’ve always felt that Red Skull is the most abhorrent comic book villain of all time (for very obvious reasons) but I understand his existence must come from a direct opposition to Captain America. I can’t wait to see how their epic battle plays out on the big screen. July 22 can’t get here soon enough for me.
