No matter how small Captain America packs one hell of a punch.

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?
When Captain America: Steve Rogers #1 went on sale this morning, it's fair to say the great many of us didn't anticipate the shocking Steve Rogers Hydra Agent twist.
TIME managed to sit down with Marvel Executive Editor Tom Brevoort to pick his brain about the decision. Considering the interview in full, we learn that this was a strategic move on the comic book writer Nick Spencer's part to 'restore youth and vigor' to Cap'n, post super soldier serum-breakdown. The massive reveal has been in the works for more than a year.
Kind of interesting to think about how this will impact the wider scope of the Marvel Universe, don't you think? The fact that someone named Captain America is literally revealed as having a perverse allegiance to an organization with these beliefs. A few of my favorite reactions from the internet to this news, to surface so far:
