Hugo Weaving as the Red Skull

Comic book fans are extremely passionate, there’s no doubt about that. And that passion has clearly carried over to the many movies that have been made based on the various comic books. But sometimes…sometimes that passion can take a fan to some pretty extreme places.

Take, for example, 37-year-old Henry Damon from Venezuela. Damon is so incredibly passionate about comics, and especially Captain America comics, that he has always dreamed of becoming Cap’s nemesis Red Skull. And so he decided to have his entire face reconstructed, according to the Daily Mail, in order to transform himself into the Marvel supervillain, who was played by Hugo Weaving in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (seen above). This included the super fan getting his face AND eyes tattooed, inserting implants under his skin to create the right shape, and even having his nose cut off to mimic the Skull’s intimidating look.

You can read more and see images and a video of Damon’s extreme new look here below.

Week of Geek: Captain America: The First Avenger

If you have read Captain America comics since you were a wee lad like me, then you are probably excited about Marvel’s newest blockbuster Captain America: The First Avenger.

I for one can hardly wait to see the Star Spangled Avenger appear on the silver screen for the first time, mixing it up with his arch enemies Hydra and the Red Skull. While these villains are certainly not to be underestimated, there are quite a few Cap villains that are. We at Geeks of Doom believe that every dog deserves his day so we are proud to present Top 5 Underrated Captain America Villains.

These villains might be underrated for a reason, but someone out there digs them. Continue reading to see who makes the list!

Week of Geek: Captain America: The First Avenger

The world loves superhero movies. For every release, it seems that audiences can’t wait to see the next superhero flick. And see it you will. Because if there’s one thing that people love more than the average movie, it’s Harry Potter. But now that Harry Potter’s done, you have time for more superhero movies! Yay! But, if you’re anything like the rest of the world’s population, based on sales, you probably don’t read a lot of comics and you might be a little confused by the convoluted plot lines and science fiction elements you see in these films. It may be a little tough for the average moviegoer, but that’s why I’m here!

So, in honor of this week’s Captain America: The First Avenger, I’m going to take the time to sit down with each and every one of you in a feature I like to call Captain America 101 to discuss some of the characters and terminology that you’ll be seeing in this weekend’s #1 movie, that is, unless the world decides to see Harry Potter again, but I digress.

Let’s get to it, soldier!

See What Hugo Weaving Looks Like As Red Skull In ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’

In the recently released trailer for Marvel’s upcoming superhero movie, Captain America: The First Avenger, there was a brief tease of the evil Red Skull, being played by The Matrix and The Lord of the Rings star Hugo Weaving.

Now Entertainment Weekly has a much better look at the villain for those of you dying to see just how he looks. Red Skull is an incredibly dangerous threat and ultimate nemesis to Captain America (Chris Evans), a Nazi trained by none other than Hitler himself. He’s one of the all-time best villains of comic book lore, and could go down as an all-time great movie villain if done right.

You can see this great look at Hugo Weaving as Red Skull in Captain America: The First Avenger by clicking on over to the other side right now!

Week of Geek: San Diego Comic Con International 2010

SDCC 2010: Marvel Captain America Panel: Chris Evans 03Fans saw their first glimpse of Captain America: The First Avenger at Marvel Studios panel today at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con.

The teaser trailer opened with lots of red, white, and blue imagery over top old World War II footage of soldiers marching in line and iconic imagery, like Hilter walking in Paris and U.S. soldiers rising the flag at Iwo Jima. The old video footage plays as FDR’s famous “Infamy Speech” is in voiceover.

When the black and white footage ends, we see the Captain America shield symbol, and then Captain America for the first time in a baggy unflattering suit, and finally the shield which is hurdled at the camera to end the clip.

The first glimpse of Captain America’s suit looked much like the prototype sketches that previously leaked online. The “mask” is more akin to something out of the Ultimates version rather than the classic suit that features tiny wings on the head.

‘Captain America’ Casts Toby Jones To Play The Villain Zola

Zola

Joe Johnston isn’t settling for one villain in his upcoming Marvel Studios comic book adaptation, Captain America. The director has grabbed Toby Jones to play a second baddie, named Arnim Zola.

Zola was an evil biochemist during World War II,who figured out a way to take everything about a person’s mental signature and basically burn them into a cloned brain. His work was sometimes funded by Red Skull, who was the first villain cast in Captain America, to be played by Hugo Weaving (Lord of the Rings, The Matrix).

Zola’s desire to play God was put to use for none other than Adolf Hitler, whose brain patterns were imprinted onto what became Hate-Monger so that Hitler could live on in the event of his own death. He even burned himself into his own new body, which looks similar the body that Krang from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles walked around in, only more robotic.

HugoWell it looks like Captain America will be fighting an agent from The Matrix!

‘Captain America’ Sidekick Bucky Barnes To Be Played By Sebastian Stan

Bucky Barnes

Many names were reportedly in consideration for the role of Captain America in The First Avenger: Captain America. We were told of quite a few of them toward the end of February (Read: Want To Know Who’s In The Running To Become Captain America?), but ironically, it’s now two candidates that were not part of that list who have won the lead roles.

It’s being reported that Sebastian Stan, who was at one time a possible choice to become the Captain himself, has been cast in the role of Bucky Barnes. He joins Chris Evans, who of course was recently offered and accepted the job to play the highly coveted superhero role.

Marvel Chooses Hugo Weaving To Play ‘Captain America’ Villain Red Skull

Red Skull

We’ve been waiting a long time to find out who exactly would be playing Captain America in Joe Johnston‘s Marvel film, The First Avenger: Captain America. Thankfully the same mess doesn’t apply to other characters, including the movie’s villain, Red Skull.

It’s being reported that Hugo Weaving is currently in negotiations to star as the literally red-headed baddie in the movie. Red Skull was the right-hand man to ultimate real-life villain, Adolf Hitler, in the comics when he and Captain America first became enemies during World War II. This storyline also saw both characters end up in a suspended animation that would bring them to modern days, which is how Captain America will likely fit into the Avengers film. Depending on the dirty details of the contract, it’s probably not completely out of the question to think Weaving could return as one of the villains in The Avengers as well.
