Captain America Civil War: Daniel Brühl Will Play the Villain

By   /   2 years ago

It is official, since the MCU announced that they have cast Daniel Brühl in Captain America Civil War, speculations began about him being the villain. We can confirm the news as it is coming directly from the man himself.

Daniel Brühl confirmed in an interview given to The Independent magazine that he will be featuring in the third Captain America movie as the villain Baron Helmut Zemo.

“I think I can tell you that without being thrown into Marvel prison. 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.”

Brühl famously known for Rush and Inglourious Basterds will be playing Helmut, son of Baron Heinrich Zemo, introduced in the 1970s who is back to avenge his father. Helmut plays a complicated character where he switches sides as he pleases. He is one of those villains who think they are doing it for the betterment of the world.

Helmut has links with HYDRA and is a long time foe of the captain; on one hand he plots an army of villains at Iron Man’s (Robert Downey Jr.) request and on the other hand helps Cap (Chris Evans) run away from the prison.

The original comics propose his affiliations with both sides but do not give away the actual reason behind his existence. However, MCU is known for changing the story and character traits as they like. The movie will release in 2016, 6 May.
