While we’ve known for a while that Spanish born, German actor Daniel Bruhl, star of Inglorius Basterds, was going to be playing Baron Zemo in Captain America: Civil War (here), it has been confirmed by the actor himself now.
In an interview with The Independent, the actor has confirmed his role in the Marvel movie: “I can tell you that without being thrown into Marvel prison…– and starts shooting at the end of April. For the first few days I’ll walk around like a little boy, just amazed by the megalomania of it. It’s such a huge project. We could do 20 films with the budget.”
Baron Helmut Zemo is the thirteenth Baron in the German Zemo family lineage. Following in the footsteps of his father before him, he is an enemy of Captain America and the Avengers. Zemo has led the Masters of Evil on several occasions and he also formed and lead the first incarnation of the Thunderbolts super-team.
Captain America: Civil War is set for a May 2016 release
