I was pleasantly surprised with how well the Red Skull was realized on film this past summer. The combination of Hugo Weaving's performance, along with the make-up and CGI effects made what could have been an overly cartoonish character into a formidable villain. I think that the filmmakers made right decision to separate Hydra from Hiler and Nazi's so as not to diminish the bravery and sacrifices of actual WWII soldiers.
I have heard rumors of a Sgt. Rock movie over the hears, with names like Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger attached. I just don't know if there is any actor out there who could effectively embody the iconic role of Frank Rock. As much as I love the stories, maybe Sgt. Rock is a property best left in print. I'd love to be proven wrong about that, though!
