Kevin Feige, the guy running marvel, recently had a brief conversation with the guys over at Total Film and was able to offer them a few details regarding Hugo Weaving’s Red Skull costume, why the UK was the best place to shoot this film, and a brief update about The Avengers.  You can check out their brief story located below.

Why have you chosen the UK to film Captain America?
Well it’s that two thirds of the film actually takes place in Europe and there are many scenes in and around London. So it just made sense that we film it where the majority of the film takes place. Having been here now for almost two and a half months prepping and twenty-some days into shooting.

How the Red Skull looking?
Hugo Weaving has been in the Red Skull effect, in costume for a couple of weeks now and it’s a hell of a lot of fun. We gave people a little taste in San Diego about what his character will look like but now that we’ve started to work with the actual skull it’s going to be a lot of fun and a rather frightening villain.

What’s happening with The Avengers?
There’s not much I can tell you but Joss [Whedon] is hard at work with the script and we’ve hired most of our crew. They’re looking to design and build and prepare for when we start filming next year.

While the above is not much, it does get me very excited about the Red Skull.  I think Hugo Weaving is going to do a fantastic job as the villain but it’s his costume that will hopefully blow us all away.

What do you all think of the brief Q & A above?  Is it too early to start getting hyped up?
