For quite a while, it has been confirmed by Marvel that Daniel Bruhl from Rush and Inglorious Bastards was to play a major role in the upcoming film [Captain America: Civil War](movie:994409), which is set to start up Phase 3 in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And his role is none other than one of Cap's most recurring enemies: BARON ZEMO!!!

Now I have been speculating that Bruhl would either be Zemo or MODOK in the movie since we haven't seen them introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet. But I believe that Marvel will pull off another great Captain America villain with Baron Zemo here as the main villain while the other villain Crossbones (Frank Grillo) is his second-in-command.

Now that [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](movie:293035) is on its way, I think that the events that will be portrayed in that film may affect what may happen when Captain America Civil War hits theaters in 2016. While HYDRA is still involved here, I would like to see Bruhl as Zemo being the new leader of HYDRA replacing both Hugo Weaving's Red Skull and Robert Redford's Alexander Pierce. But there is no way that Red Skull will ever come back since we saw his defeat at the power of the Tesseract which sent him flying through the Nine Realms (just a thought). And nobody can figure out where he is now. And neither can I.

Now Baron Zemo is the name of two super villains in the Marvel universe. Both of which are enemies of Captain America. The first Baron Zemo (Heinrich Zemo) was a follower of the Nazi Party and has been a recurring enemy of Cap since his days in World War II. The present Baron (Helmut Zemo) is the son of Heinrich and he carries out Zemo's legacy for world domination and is also another enemy of Captain America.

So what do you guys think about Bruhl as Baron Zemo? Will it work? Is he worth this role? Let me know down below.
