The comic book version of Baron Zemo looks quite different from the way he was portrayed in Captain America: Civil War — most notably, the character is typically seen wearing a purple hood, which was permanently fused to his face following an unfortunate run-in with an experimental adhesive. But Daniel Bruhl’s version of Zemo in Civil War is depicted without the hood, or any real resemblance to his comic book counterpart, for that matter. Although that choice was probably for the best, unused concept art shows what Bruhl might have looked like if Joe and Anthony Russo had remained more faithful to the source material.
If you’ve ever wanted to watch Daniel Bruhl make Robert Downey Jr. eat a ping pong ball in a Berlin restaurant, congratulations, your wish just came true. In a new German promo video for Captain America: Civil War, Bruhl — who plays the film’s villain, Baron Zemo — takes the actor occasionally known as Iron Man on a little tour of Berlin, stopping in a restaurant to treat his co-star to some authentic German food…including ping pong balls, for some reason.
By now you're well-aware that Captain America: Civil War is arriving in just a few weeks, and though we've seen a good amount of footage via trailers, TV spots and photos, there's still one character we've yet to meet: the villainous Baron Zemo, played by Daniel Bruhl. Marvel has finally provided a look at Civil War's big bad (who doesn't look so big or bad), along with a few new images and four (yes, four) magazine covers.
The Avengers will be forced to choose sides in the battle between Captain America and Iron Man in Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, and while friends will become enemies in the epic showdown, there will be an actual villain in the mix: Daniel Bruhl is portraying Baron Zemo, the Nazi-era baddie from the Marvel comics, but the actor says directors Joe and Anthony Russo are putting a bit of an unexpected spin (or two) on his character to freshen him up for his big screen debut.
Emma Watson has not one, but two upcoming films in which she’s faced with cultish activity. There’s Alejandro Amenabar’s Regression, co-starring Ethan Hawke and hitting theaters this fall, and Colonia, co-starring Daniel Bruhl, which doesn’t yet have a release date, but you can watch the first trailer which arrived today.
When his casting was first announced, Marvel tried keeping the identity of Daniel Bruhl's character in Captain America: Civil War secret. But in an interview this weekend, Bruhl casually confirmed that he’s playing the villainous Baron Zemo in the upcoming superhero sequel.
ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie/TV news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, a potential title for the new Spider-Man movie may contain some story hints, new Fantastic Four information teases a weird change from the comics, and a potential update on the new Aquaman villain.
Lifetime already delivered their true-life version of the notorious Amanda Knox case, but director Michael Winterbottom has arrived with his own fictionalized take on the murder scandal. In the first trailer for The Face of an Angel, Daniel Brühl plays a filmmaker who travels to Italy to cover a murder trial involving an American student—only her name isn’t Amanda Knox. It’s Elizabeth. The names and some details are changed, but yes, this is essentially the Amanda Knox trial.
With the arrival of the first U.S. trailer, we can now add Eva to the list of movies following the recent A.I. trend. Originally released internationally back in 2011 (yeah, wow), Eva stars Daniel Brühl as a cybernetic engineer tasked with giving robots real emotions. Apparently he’s never seen A.I. or Her or I, Robot or…well, you get the point. Eva takes place in an alternate future where these movies don’t exist, so playing God with robot feelings seems like an okay idea until it’s not.
Captain America and Iron Man won’t be the only ones brawling in ‘Captain America 3’. While the juiciest part of ‘Civil War’ will surely be seeing the two (former?) Avengers squaring off against each other, there are still going to be some common villains they’ll have to deal with. For one, the Winter Soldier is still on the loose. For another, so is Brock Rumlow, aka Crossbones. And, as if it couldn’t get more difficult, Cap will also have to deal with yet another villain. Daniel Bruhl (‘Rush’) signed on to star in the film back in November and now comes some confirmation that he’ll be playing classic comic villain Baron Zemo.
