Hugo Weaving is in talks to star in Captain America.

Marvel Studios hopes to sign The Lord Of The Rings star to play villain Red Skull, according to Heat Vision Blog.

Red Skull has been Captain America's arch-enemy since 1941 - when he engaged in espionage and sabotage as Hitler's right-hand man - and was buried under a pile of rubble in his final battle with the superhero, only to fall into suspended animation and be revived in modern times to fight again.

Joe Johnston is directing the movie, which is still searching for an actor to play Captain America, aka former WWII soldier Steve Rogers.

Cloverfield's Mike Vogel, Wilson Bethel, of HBO's Iraq miniseries Generation Kill, and Fantastic Four's Chris Evans are reportedly being considered.

The First Avenger: Captain America is scheduled for release on July 22 next year.
