With all the excitement of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we can’t forget that Captain America: Civil War is on its way next year, pitting Earth’s Mightiest Heroes against each other. However, while Marvel are often praised for how close they keep their characters to their comic book alternatives, Daniel Brühl has told Business Insider that his Baron Zemo is very “different”, and won’t be wearing the mask.
“He does not wear the mask,” the actor said bluntly.
“It’s loosely connected to this character,” he added with regards to his version of Baron Zemo being different to the comics. “But that’s what I like about the Marvel guys, some of the characters and things they’re dealing with always reference to current events so my character is from a different area than you would think.”
Will we see Baron Zemo crop up again in the MCU? “There’s a possibility,” he teases. “That’s the way it’s written.”
Captain America: Civil War is set for release on April 29th 2016 in the UK and May 6th 2016 in the States, with Anthony and Joe Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) directing a cast that includes Marvel Cinematic Universe veterans Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America), Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man), Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson/Falcon), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier), Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch), Paul Bettany (The Vision), Don Cheadle (James Rhondes/War Machine), Paul Rudd (Scott Lang/Ant-Man), Emily VanCamp (Sharon Carter) and Frank Grillo (Brock Rumlow/Crossbones) and William Hurt (General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross) alongside new additions Chadwick Boseman (Get on Up) as T’Challa/Black Panther, Daniel Bruhl (Rush) as Baron Zemo, Martin Freeman (Sherlock) and Tom Holland (The Impossible) as Peter Parker/Spider-Man.
