Last year we revealed Daniel Bruhl (The Fifth Estate) would be joining Captain America’s third film, now titled CIVIL WAR. At the time, we didn’t have a lock down on who he would be playing in the film, but rather he would be joining it and possibly carrying over to DOCTOR STRANGE. Today, through a casting call, we can confirm what Marvel villain Bruhl will be playing in 2016.
SPOILERS…but not really?
Ok, Bruhl will be playing Baron Zemo. This is awesome news, as Zemo is a great villain and has always had it out for Captain America. You can get a sense of him by watching Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, as he is constantly a thorn in the sides of the heroes there. There have been two Zemos throughout Marvel’s comics, first is Heinrich, a World War II adversary of Cap’s, but the most recent in current comics and timeline (and well known) is his son Helmut. Yes, Helmut Zero…which is a terrible name. I’d be a bad guy too if my name was that! Hopefully they’ll change the name by next year.
Either way, with this casting call coming out, we should expect to hear more about CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR as production heats up. Do you think Bruhl will make a good Zemo or is the movie already becoming too crowded?
