Just when you thought that one villain would be enough of a challenge for Chris Evans‘ Captain America, The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision Blog today announced that Toby Jones (W, Infamous) will play Nazi genetic engineer Arnim Zola in Joe Johnston’s upcoming event picture.
In comics lore, Zola created clones and various monstrosities for Hitler. He also captured his own mental self, inserting it into a robot, and survived the war. Hugo Weaving will portray main baddie The Red Skull in Paramount Pictures fourth superhero film, which will blast it’s way into theaters on July 22 2011, just a two and a half months after Thor.
The World War II-set movie also stars Sebastian Stan as Cap’s sidekick Bucky Barnes and Hayley Atwell as the hero’s love interest, Peggy Carter. All parties are gearing up for a summer shoot in England, which should begin in July.
