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.
Yes, we’ve all been distracted by the awesome arrival of the first ‘Ant-Man’ trailer, as well as new images and concept art from the film, but let’s not forget the other Marvel movies on the horizon—like ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ which will kick off Marvel’s Phase 3 and introduce the epic ‘Civil War’ storyline from the comics. Anthony Mackie has dropped a few details on the upcoming third installment in the ‘Captain America’ series, including when and where they’ll be filming.
