Everyone’s so busy talking about the superheroes in Captain America: Civil War that it’s easy to forget there are villains in the mix too. Daniel Bruhl (Rush) is playing Baron Zemo and although his involvement in the movie has been heavily guarded, Entertainment Weekly has revealed the character for the very first time.
He’s not donning his iconic costume here, yes, but it’s our first look at Bruhl full-stop. Check out the image below, showing a rather tense Baron Zemo in what looks to be some form of meeting.
Brühl recently gave an interview to Total Film where he said his character was responsible for a lot of conflict in the movie and that his character orchestrates events throughout the film.
He explained: “Yes, but what I like is it’s not a stereotype. It’s not a guy who’s mean and sinister, but he’s actually very clever – a very smart guy who does everything out of a very understandable reason and motivation.”
Here’s what Zemo looks like in the comics in his costume.
Captain America: Civil War” picks up where “Avengers: Age of Ultron” left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
