‘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!

The rumor has been circulating for awhile now but Marvel Studios confirmed today that Hugo Weaving will be playing Johann Schmidt aka the Red Skull in Captain America: The First Avenger. Chris Evans has already been cast as the Star Spangled Avenger with Hayley Atwell taking on the role of Peggy Carter. Joe Johnston is directing the film with Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely handling writing duties.

Marvel says the film will focus on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America.

Captain America

Some major Summer blockbusters have been adding new faces to their cast over the course of the past week.

Though the casting of Chris Evans in the role of Steve Rogers in Joe Johnston‘s The First Avenger: Captain America and the news that Joss Whedon would be directing The Avengers has without doubt stolen the spotlight, there was still work to be done.

Hayley Atwell, who has starred in films like The Duchess and the TV mini-series remake of The Prisoner, has now been cast as the Captain America female lead, Peggy Carter. Atwell will be playing the the love interest of Rogers, and her character could become much larger depending upon how they take her comic book storyline and transfer it to the screen. Many actresses were looked at for this role, including Keira Knightley and Emily Blunt.

Marvel Slate

It was pretty crazy to discover that geek god of all things fanboy Joss Whedon was going to direct Marvel Studios massive culmination of characters and storylines in The Avengers. But now it looks like Marvel might be ready to really hand Whedon the keys to the car.

According to reports, not only will Whedon be directing The Avengers, but he’ll also be rewriting Zak Penn‘s script. This doesn’t mean that he’ll be throwing the entire script away and starting all over, but what he will be doing is going over everything, removing and replacing some things, and adding whatever he thinks might be crucial to the story or his style of directing.

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.

Chris Evans Reportedly Accepts Offer To Become Captain America

2010-03-22_chris_evans_blueWho says you can only play one hero in the world of comic book films? Not Ryan Reynolds, who has appeared in a Blade movie, a Wolverine movie, and will be in the upcoming Green Lantern and Deadpool movies. And apparently not Chris Evans.

Last week, Evans had reportedly been offered the role of Steve Rogers, also known as Captain America, in The First Avenger: Captain America [read Chris Evans Offered The Role Of ‘The First Avenger’]. It now appears that Evans, who’s previously made us laugh as Johnny Storm in the Fantastic Four films, has decided to accept.

There was some question last week whether or not he would accept. It’s a tough decision to make, factoring in the reported nine-picture deal Marvel Studios’ wants the actor to take on. Not only will he need to hold his own film up but the Avengers and other upcoming Marvel releases as well. That’s a huge time commitment to give and reportedly the paycheck wasn’t that enticing either (under $1 million).

Captain America Chosen? Chris Evans Offered The Role Of ‘The First Avenger’

Chris Evans

The internet is abuzz today as it is being reported that Fantastic Four star Chris Evans has been offered the role of Captain America in The First Avenger: Captain America.

The report is a bit strange because, as is the popular fad these days, the casting is not yet confirmed, and both Marvel and Evans’ representatives declined to comment or confirm the offer being made. If true, and if the actor accepts the offer, it appears that he would not only be entering into an agreement to star in First Avenger as well as The Avengers the following year, but he would also be contracted to appear in two more potential Captain America films and other possible Marvel films — likely of the cameo variety.

Evans is popular for his excellent ability to deliver dry, sarcastic humor much in the same vein as Ryan Reynolds, who is also very popular in the realms of comic book movies these days. Considering the roles that he’s usually seen playing, this casting will see some people scratching their heads for sure, but it could end up working out. It would be unarguably better than Channing Tatum…never forget this, you comic book faithfuls.

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.

Captain America

A list of names has been revealed to the masses today, and this list of names just so happens to be the gentlemen who are currently in the running for the highly-coveted role of Captain America in The First Avenger: Captain America.

Usually we would just ignore stuff like this because c’mon now, this is a bunch of people who are being considered for one single role, which means all but one of them will not have anything to do with the project in the end. None-the-less, this is a gigantic film, and the last before the unheard of merging of multiple juggernaut Marvel Studios franchises in The Avengers, so we figured you might be interested in knowing just who might become your new Captain.

The names included are certainly very interesting and they vary from those you might expect to a couple you might not so much expect. Continue reading to find out who’s in the hunt!

Director Joe Johnston Offers Details On ‘Captain America’; Red Skull To Be Villain?

Red SkullA big press junket for The Wolfman was recently held in Los Angeles, but the prime objective of anyone who could get to director Joe Johnston was to find out whatever they could about his contribution to the Marvel world, The First Avenger: Captain America.

The movie isn’t set to be released until July 22, 2011, but with no sign of even the first casting announcement, folks are beginning to wonder what’s going on. Two massive Marvel movies are primed for release that summer — the other being Kenneth Branagh’s Thor, which bows May 6 — but Thor has all of its casting well in-hand, hence the question marks. These two movies are the final two pieces before 2012’s The Avengers begins its epic descent toward our eyes.

So what exactly did Johnston have to share about his movie and where things stand? Well — a lot, to be quite honest. Johnston touched on the type of gentleman he wants to cast in the all-important role and when we should meet this man, how he’s handling the tricky-but-iconic costume re-invention, and what other known characters or maybe even villains we could see showing up in the movie.
