Captain America vs. The Red Skull

I’m sure it has come to everyone’s attention at this point that they are producing a Captain America Movie starring Chris Evans as Capt. Well, as you know, I am on the fence about this decision for many, many reasons and have mentioned them before. Therefore, I will not go into them now. However, I think a great casting choice that they’ve made is who is going to play the Red Skull, Capt.’s main villain. Brace yourself…it’s going to be Hugo Weaving.

Honestly, as much as I dislike the Chris Evans casting, I approve of this casting whole heartedly. Why? Because Weaving is an amazing actor. Watch The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Matrix, V for Vendetta, Transformers (he voiced Megatron), and many more to see his acting chops. He is an amazing actor and will bring the character of the Red Skull into glorious reality (as far as movie reality goes…). Weaving has ability to become this character.

The only thing that I really worry about with this casting choice is how will Evans fare against this powerhouse? I mean seriously Weaving is more experienced and brings a large presence to the screen. I mean for God sakes in V for Vendetta he, as V,  overshadowed Natalie Portman’s performance and this was without the use of facial expressions…or even seeing his face for that matter. He is that good. It scares me that he will make the tilt of the movie a little off kilter compared to Evans….However, that being said, I believe that he will make the movie something to watch…rather than it just being a Captain America fan’s wet dream.

In my opinion, Weaving will be the reason to watch the movie, and this fact is sad to say because Capt. should be amazing. He is “The First Avenger” afterall. So, while I still hold my breath to see if Evans performance is any good (I still haven’t completely passed judgment because I have been surprised before), I know that Weaving will be amazing…enough said.
