Ever since it was revealed that the villain in Captain America: The First Avenger was The Red Skull, movie fans have been asking “what? Why is he called ‘The Red Skull’?” When Hugo Weaving was cast in the part, the truth remained obscure, as Hugo Weaving’s skull is covered by flesh and hair, and it presumably is of a normal bone-white color. Now, a new photo of the character from Entertainment Weekly clears this up once and for all. He’s called The Red Skull because his face and head is a red skull.

He’s a Nazi too, although I don’t see any swastikas on his shiny leather uniform. I’m never one to complain about a lack of swastikas, though. (via /Film)

Red Skull In ‘Captain America’ Looks Like Constipated Devil? http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/red-skull-in-captain-america-looks-like-constipated-devil/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/red-skull-in-captain-america-looks-like-constipated-devil/#comments Tue, 18 Jan 2011 03:50:41 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=17489 Halloween costume reveals that Red Skull might look like Red Sh*t.

Pics are flying out of the Captain America: The First Avenger cam faster than a deadly frisbee shield. However, this one isn’t an official leak. A website began selling Captain America movie Halloween costumes, which gives us an underwhelming (read: really shitty) first look at Cap’s nemesis Red Skull in full bad-suntan mode, portrayed in the upcoming film by Hugo Weaving. He looks like a ‘pumped’ New Jersey Devils fan or an angry, grown up “Inside Out Boy” from old school Nickelodeon.

Perhaps it’s unfair to judge a character’s look by its mass-market Halloween costume spin-off. This one doesn’t do Edward Cullen any favors. Unfortunately, this Red Skull isn’t the first laughable image of Captain America we’ve seen. If more images like these get hoisted up the flag pole, I don’t think too many people are gonna be saluting. (Collider)

Super-heroes tend to be a package deal – you don’t just get Batman, but also Robin, a utility belt, and an acrobat wearing uncomfortably small shorts. It’s the same with one of 2011′s most anticipated big screen superheroes, Captain America: The First Avenger. Some new images have dropped onto the internet recently, one of the all-powerful Cosmic Cube (not available in stores), and Captain America‘s archenemy, the undateable Red Skull. The Red Skull’s concept art can be found below, and it’s no surprise to anyone familiar with the character. Pretty standard red-skeleton-who-is-also-a-Nazi stuff here, which is admittedly really cool. Pictured above is an actual photo of the Cosmic Cube being handled by Hugo Weaving as the Red Skull’s alter-ego, presumably just before coming down with one of the worst skin conditions in modern history. The photo is interesting, although it’s safe to assume that in the actual movie there will be a lot of fancy post-production effects used in order to achieve that special “reality-warping feeling.” No new pics of Chris Evans as Cap, but it’s also safe to assume that we will eventually be seeing pictures of Captain America’s iconic star-and-stripe adorned shield, preferably bouncing off of Hitler’s face.
