The effects behind 'Captain America's' Red Skull

"Captain America: The First Avenger" did an impressive special effects job to help transform Chris Evans' heroic character from scrawny Steve Rogers into the massively muscular superhero.

But as a special feature on the Blu-ray/DVD release of the film shows, they didn't save all the effects for Captain America, and used some to properly bring the villain Red Skull (played by Hugo Weaving) to the screen.

The clip above shows how they perfected what they call Red Skull's "negative nose space," which they did using a computer-generated model.

Considering it was one of the most anticipated parts of the film, how well do you think they did crafting Red Skull's features?

"Captain America: The First Avenger" arrives on Blu-ray/DVD in 3-D and 2-D versions on October 25.

    I think they did an amazing job with Red Skull! I don't know if I can say the same for Chris Evans. It was obvious they had cut off part of his chin to make him look smaller. However, for special affects that were obviously very difficult to do, they did the best job possible.
