'Captain America: Civil War' cast, plot: Daniel Brhl discusses differences between Baron Zemo in movie and comics


Baron Zemo is one of the newest additions to the roster of villains in the marvel Cinematic Universe. One of Captain America’s iconic villains, the character is set to make his MCU big screen debut in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War film.

In an interview with Business Insider, actor Daniel Brhl shared how different his depiction of the villain Baron Helmut Zemo is. As revealed by the actor, his take on Zemo will not include the iconic mask he was known to always sport.

“He does not wear the mask,” Brhl said. In the comics, Baron Zemo wore a cloak to hide his identitiy. In a fight with Captain America, the Adhesive Xhis own creationspilled on him, causing the mask he’s wearing to be stuck on his face for all time.

“You would be surprised, it’s different than what you’d think,” he added. “It’s loosely connected to this character. 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.”

The actor also pointed out that there is a possibility he will be back in future MCU films, as that was “the way it’s written.”
