Marvel Studios has announced that Hugo Weaving has been cast to star as Johann Schmidt aka the Red Skull in the studio’s highly anticipated movie Captain America: The First Avenger opposite Chris Evans and Hayley Atwell.

Joe Johnston will direct the film penned by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely.

Weaving was last seen in The Wolfman and his voice is very recognizable as Megatron from Transformers and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen as well as Noah the Elder from Happy Feet.
