You want an actor fit to play an evil Nazi mastermind with a major case of the facial disfigurements who uses his extreme intellect and hardcore fascist training to wreak havoc across the entire Marvel universe, namely in Captain America's backyard? You get Hugo Weaving.

It was reported some time ago that Weaving was up for the part of Red Skull in the Captain America movie, but actual confirmation came from Marvel today, ensuring that we'll get to see Chris Evans, wearing red, white and blue spandex, duke it out with Weaving, looking like William Castle's Nazi fever dream, during a World War II that will probably not be too period accurate.
