Comic Artist Brian Bendis praises ‘The Avengers’ and Hugo Weaving as Red Skull in ‘Captain America The First Avenger’

In the latest issue of Cleveland Magazine, focused on Northeastern Ohio, where partial filming for Marvel’s highly-anticipated film The Avengers is taking place, comic writer Brian Michael Bendis briefly praises the Joss Whedon-written screenplay. And also sharing vague thoughts on Captain America: The First Avenger.

Bendis explained that he is “…a consultant on it. Best job ever, maybe? I’m very excited it’s happening there [Cleveland], man. It’s an amazing screenplay. And I don’t hype frivolously. I think it’s the best thing Joss Whedon’s ever written. I was in awe of it, and I still am.”

Ahead of Captain America: The First Avenger, Bendis praised the villain.

“I’ve seen it, and it was great. Red Skull, played by Hugo Weaving, is a really good villain, probably the best from Marvel [Studios].”‘
