Kevin Feige is the man who's got Marvel in the palm of his hand. The studio head is overlooking CAPTAIN AMERICA, THOR, SPIDER-MAN, and THE AVENGERS. With all of that loaded on his shoulders, it's impressive he is still able to function as a normal human, let alone talk to the press about those projects.

But, talk he did this weekend, as Total Film sat down for a brief interview with Feige. He talks about everything involving THE FIRST AVENGER from filming to Hugo Weaving. Check out some of the interview after the jump.

Here's what Feige had to say:

Why have you chosen the UK to film Captain America?
Well it’s that two thirds of the film actually takes place in Europe and there are many scenes in and around London. So it just made sense that we film it where the majority of the film takes place. Having been here now for almost two and a half months prepping and twenty-some days into shooting.

How the Red Skull looking?
Hugo Weaving has been in the Red Skull effect, in costume for a couple of weeks now and it’s a hell of a lot of fun. We gave people a little taste in San Diego about what his character will look like but now that we’ve started to work with the actual skull it’s going to be a lot of fun and a rather frightening villain.

What’s happening with The Avengers?
There’s not much I can tell you but Joss [Whedon] is hard at work with the script and we’ve hired most of our crew. They’re looking to design and build and prepare for when we start filming next year.

There really isn't too much else to say here. The success of future Marvel movies (especially THE AVENGERS) hangs off the success of CAPTAIN AMERICA. It seems like everyone is passionate about the project and that's about all you can really ask for. Passion can go a long way, and there's a lot of it working on Marvel films.
