We’re just weeks away from the release of Captain America: Civil War, and while we’ve gotten plenty of news and footage this week – dubbed Marvel Week – we still haven’t seen any actual footage of Daniel Brühl in the film. Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, however, we at least have our first image of the actor who is set to play Baron Zemo in the highly anticipated film. Unfortunately, however, for those hoping we’d see Zemo in costume? No such luck. (At least, not just yet.)
Below the image, Entertainment Weekly had some interesting tidbits regarding Brühl’s take on Zemo in the film:
As Helmut Zemo, Daniel Brühl is a mysterious, manipulative figure who is positioning the heroes against each other. Why? We know, but can’t say. It’s too much of a spoiler. This character is a significant variation on the cackling, purple-masked Baron Zemo from the Marvel Comics, who led a group that called itself the Masters of Evil. (No mystery about their intentions there.) “He’s still similar to what you know of Zemo, a revenge character,” Joe Russo says.
Along with the new images, which also offer a great look at another Marvel Cinematic Universe newbie, Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa, Entertainment Weekly has also released a look at their upcoming connecting covers and they’re pretty damn great. You can see the full connected image above.
Captain America: Civil War will hit movie theaters on May 6th, 2016.
