Hugo Weaving as Red Skull?

My only real experience with Captain America comes from these two sources:

and while these two gems from yesteryear hold a special place in my heart, I'm excited for the first in a potentially great Avengers series. And while I've heard a million rumors as to who'll be cast as the All-American hero, I'm more excited about who will play the sometimes Nazi, sometimes Communist supervillian RED SKULL! And news was released today that Hugo Weaving is in talks to fill the role. I've gotta tell you...this is the best news since the Liev Schreiber's casting as Sabertooth (which was the best news since Kelsey Grammer's casting as Beast). Any thoughts on this casting (or this movie overall)?

Is this going to be a Spider-Man or a Fantastic Four?

I think it still all hinges on what poor sap agrees to sign the nine-picture deal as Cap.

The ghost guy was Vision and he was awesome. But you're right, I loved Hawkeye.

I don't know anything about Captain America, but I do know that Hugo Weaving is scary...and so are nazis. So I think it's appropriate casting.
