Entertainment Weekly is one of those magazines that gets a lot of exclusives when it comes to movies, television, and the various what-nots.  Today, the site posted a really great image of the Red Skull in full Hydra dress.

In this summer’s Captain America: The First Avenger, Chris Evans plays a scrawny, sickly wannabe soldier during World War II who gets an injection that turns him into a super-warrior. A similar experiment was also established by the Nazis, but turned their test subject — the weapons developer Johann Schmidt (Hugo Weaving) — into the ghastly Red Skull.

So, what do you think, Dear Reader? We saw a quick glimpse of Weaving during the Super Bowl ad, does this full on look give you even more hope for the movie?

Captain America: The First Avenger arrives July 22, 2011.

    I don’t know about hope … but it sure as hell gives me the creeps. I’m sure the movie is going to be the one of the big block busters of the summer. (That and the final Harry Potter film.)

    I’ll play devil’s advocate and try to find problems with the design… I got nothing, where can I buy that coat?

    That is incredible. The best part is how you can still tell it’s Hugo Weaving, despite the full on makeup.

    Hah, Tellis….clever. Yeah, this is really fantastic. I mean, that is just plain perfect. I do sorta’ wonder though….if they can translate the Skull this perfectly, why not Cap? Still, I am getting more and more excited by this movie.

    Agreed. Looks awesome. And yes, still looks like Weaving. That jacket looks like it takes twenty minutes to put on. Bad guys wear complicated clothes…

    I don’t think the jacket would look as flattering on a portly gentleman like myself.. but I would LOVE to try it out! Awesome look

    I thought it was a well crafted sculpture at first.
