Sneak Peek: Captain America The First Avenger

Published on March 3rd, 2011

So far, the only look gotten of Hugo Weaving’s character, The Red Skull, from this summer’s Captain America: The First Avenger, is a quick flash during the the first Cap TV spot played during the Super Bowl.

Now, thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we get our first, official, clear look at the insidious, Nazi era villain.


Plot Summary: “Captain America: The First Avenger” focuses on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America. As Captain America, Rogers joins forces with Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) to wage war on the evil HYDRA organization, led by the villainous Red Skull (Hugo Weaving.)
