    I've said this elsewhere but I kind of hope to see some artistic license and manipulation done with the Skull's face. I'd love to see the eyes with dark shadows at times and the crazed, maniacal, independent brows the way Jack Kirby drew at times.

    I was more so meaning using a little CGI to enhance Weaving's already naturally skull'ish looking face.

    We'll see though ... like I said I need to see Weaving actually talking with the thing.

    i have a bad feeling Red Skull will end up being like dr. doom in the fantastic four movie. He wont take his mask off until the very end of the movie, and only have 20 min of screen time in full costume.

    Aslong as his character is actually faithful to the source material, I'd be OK with 20 minutes of screen time for good ol' Skully.

    I'm also worried about that. It would be such a missed opportunity if they only showed the Red Skull at the end. People can see Hugo Weaving in other films, they'll come to Captain America to see The Red Skull!

    Red Skull looks great but this picture remind me of Scorpion from Mortal Kombat doing his toasty fatality.:awesome:

    Such great memories! I can't help but to laugh at how horrible this movie is. It's so bad that it's good.

    Most of the Batman's rougues gallery remind me of power rangers villains, myself. I still enjoy 'em.

    Im guessing theyll use slight CGI to enhance Skulls facial features and movement.

    I think it looks good, not sure what people are unhappy about.

    There is no point to people like you. Think about what you're doing.

    Batman looked like a Power Ranger in TDK but that's not why I hated that movie.

    From what I understand that picture is already enhanced by CGI. I think all Weaving had was some red markers on his face.

    I thought it was prosthetics with digital enhancements?

    I'm seriously wondering how you even got that.

    I don't even know anymore. I hear too many different things around here. My understanding was that it was a 50/50 deal.

    The Red Skull is a full prosthetic make-up - the only digital work is removing his nose, like the guy in the Harry Potter films, because with prosthetics you can only add to the face, not take away. Digital work in not required to help "move" it, the actor has been doing that for years.

    Wha? He looks nothing like him! If anything he kind of reminded me of "The Haunted Mask" from the Goosebumps series.
