Captain America Movie
The movie stars the guy who played Johnny Storm aka the Human Torch in the Fantastic Four movies, Chris Evans, as Captain America and more impressive, in my opinion, Hugo Weaving as the Red Skull. I guess you need a big voice when the character has a big red skull for a head--not a lot of facial expression in a skull. But Hugo pulled off V-Vendetta with that big plastic mask on, so he will do alright.
Cap has always been one of my favorite comic heroes. He is patriotic but not blindly obedient. Some writers and artists have treated him well, some not so much. I'm hoping they don't do America's greatest Avenger a disservice with this movie treatment.
