20OVERACHIEVED: RED SKULL

It would be impossible to make a Captain America origin film without featuring his most recognizable foe, the Red Skull. There might have been fears that a new Red Skull would be nearly as bad or as campy as the one that appeared in the 1990 Captain America film, but they

were quickly put to rest by Hugo Weaving's menacing portrayal of the classic villain.

This version of the Red Skull benefited from a bigger budget and some special effects that allowed for a more skull-like appearance. What also made him great was Weaving's portrayal, where he perfectly matched the tone of the film without making Red Skull cartoonish or silly. The Red Skull appeared again in Avengers: Infinity War, finally answering the question of what happened to him.
