During a recent interview with Yahoo, Weaving talked a little bit about how he ended up enjoying playing Red Skull, and later on how he could see a potential return of the character:

"I thought it would be a lot of fun to play a classic über-Nazi, someone who thought Hitler was a pussy! [Laughs] It was fun to play; I enjoyed the outrageousness of the German accent that I employed and I enjoyed the extraordinary mask and costume, even though it was unbelievably hot inside it. I enjoy mask work; I enjoy trying to animate masks and reveal certain things that the mask itself might not reveal. V for Vendetta was another example of that, but there was less animation within that mask versus the Red Skull.



"With Marvel, it’s pretty basic stuff: accept the deal and enjoy the ride. It’s not a major stretch for an actor, but on the other hand the difficulty with the Marvel universe is maintaining a link to a human dimension within such an extraordinary, technological CGI universe. In terms of me going back and doing another one, I don’t know. I’m not sure what they’re up to with the Red Skull."

What do you guys make of all that? And yes, that little gif is straight up terrifying, right?

The petition started up through Change.org already has 768 supporters of the 1,000 goal, and here are the following points the folks are making for why LaBeouf could play a great Red Hood:

  • Shia LaBeouf is willing to go the distance to be the best that his character can be in recent films...
  • Its an opportunity for him to show the world what an amazing actor he can truly be if you just give him a chance to be this character. Plus help him get from one of the most looked down upon actors in Hollywood to one of the most beloved actors in Hollywood because of this role
  • Ben Affleck was hated by so many people because he was cast as batman and now he is loved by many after they say what an amazing performance Ben Affleck could do as batman
  • Shia LaBeouf is truly one of the most talented actors in Hollywood if you seen his recent films
  • If you know the character Jason Todd aka Red Hood And if you know Shia LaBeouf the then u can see how similar they are in and how perfect this casting choice is for Shia LaBeouf

What do you guys think, could the notoriously volatile actor step up and pick up the role; or is Red Hood better suited for someone like Jensen Ackles (already voiced Red Hood in the animated series)?

I think we just gotta take it back to this for a quick sec--



If you're not down with that potential casting, who do you think could play a good Red Hood (Jason Todd)?
