Ya know, The Red Skull is one of those characters that’s just going to look badass regardless of budget. Even that craptacular Captain America movie from the 90’s had a pretty good-lookin’ Red Skull, but wasted it by only having him in the actual Skull for the first scene of the movie. But Hugo Weaving as the Red Skull above? Man …. that’s just awesome looking.
I’m wondering how Marvel will work in the fantastic element into their film universe. Iron Man and Hulk, while both crazy characters, are still both grounded in science. I guess Cap and Red Skull are too, but what about Thor? Can they still keep people interested in that universe? We’ll see when Thor and Cap both come out this month, supposedly with an Avengers movie teaser trailer.
