The Red Skull Revealed!

Entertainment Weekly has released the first crystal clear image of Hugo Weaving in his full Red Skull form from this summer’s Captain America: The First Avenger. While there was only a brief glimpse of the crimson colored madman during the Super Bowl TV spot, this image will reassure fans that the Red Skull does indeed look like he jumped right off the comic page.

In the comics, Johann Schmidt worked his way up through the Nazi ranks from lowly bellboy up to becoming Hitler’s right hand man. Wearing the mask of the Red Skull in order to terrify his opponents, Schmidt became one of the most feared villains in the Marvel Universe. We’ll see if the movie is faithful to that when Captain America: The First Avenger hits theaters on July 22.
