is reporting that Hugo Weaving, aka Elrond from The Lord of the Rings films, is in talks to play the villain Red Skull in the upcoming ‘Captain America‘ movie. If Hugo takes the role, he would be reuniting with director Joe Johnston (Wolfman). The film is expected to be released July 2011. What does this mean for Hugo’s involvement in the upcoming ‘Hobbit’ films?

There is a lively discussion taking place on the message boards thanks to Ringer Alex. [ Article]
