5 Greatest Comic Book Villains On The Big Screen
#4 Red Skull (Captain America)
The Red Skull is a ruthless Nazi scientist whose attempt to re-create the super soldier serum that made Steve Rogers into Captain America only transformed him into a hideous monstrosity.
Hugo Weaving as the Red Skull is dream casting. Speaking with a genuinely amazing Werner Herzog-ian accent, Weaving chooses to underplay the role, letting the sheer ridiculousness of his makeup seem like the natural extension of a madman instead of his defining characteristics. The fact that Weaving plays him reasonably straight only makes him more sinister.
