Hugo Weaving In ‘Delicate Stage’ Of Negotiations For Red Skull In ‘Captain America’ Film

Who’s going to play Captain America? Filming on “The First Avenger: Captain America” is just a few short months away and we still don’t have an answer to that all-important question. But unless something catastrophic happens in the next few days, we at least know who he’s going to be fighting – Hugo Weaving as the Red Skull.

Heat Vision reports that Weaving is in “a delicate stage” of negotiations with Marvel Studios over whether or not he’ll play the Skull in director Joe Johnston’s “Captain America” adaptation. Casting should be finalized within “the next day or so,” with the only obvious roadblock being the studio’s reportedly tough negotiation tactics with prospective talent, as demonstrated when Mickey Rourke almost walked away from “Iron Man 2.”

Agent Smith as Red Skull? I definitely dig it. It’s one of those obvious casting calls that I never considered but makes total sense. Now it’s just a matter of waiting to see who lands Steve Rogers, so keep those fingers crossed. If Keanu Reeves gets it, I’m going to punch somebody.[Via Heat Vision]
