First look at “Behind the Skull” feature from “Captain America: The First Avenger” DVD

Coming out on Tuesday, October 25, “Captain America” The First Avenger” will hit stores nationwide on DVD and Blu-ray 3D. As with all good DVD’s, both sets will feature plenty of deleted scenes and making-of features, and here is a sneak peek of one of them.

Courtesy of Super Hero Hype, here is your first look at the “Behind the Skull” feature, which goes into the history of the evil Red Skull character, as well as how they transitioned this iconic villain from the printed page to the silver screen as played by Hugo Weaving. It was interesting seeing how they balance the make-up to show the character, while also maintaining the actor and allowing him range of motion in his face in spite of the many prosthetics he was wearing.

The three-disc set includes the film on Blu-ray in high-definition 3D and in high definition 2D, as well as on standard definition DVD with a digital copy. The two-disc Blu-ray/DVD combo pack includes a high definition presentation of the film, plus a standard definition presentation with a digital copy. Both sets boast over an hour of behind-the-scenes bonus material including an original Marvel short film, a sneak peek of the upcoming “Avengers” film, six featurettes that go behind-the-scenes of the filmmaking process, deleted scenes and much more. There will also be a single-disc set for you cheap bums.
