Okay, I know, I know. The title of this post is incredibly cliche, and something like this always crops up every time Marvel releases a new movie. But hey, if you're willing to be patient, there's a little solid evidence that might just about justify my title in the text below.

Okay, I'll keep it short and simple for you guys. One thing that is being more and more forgotten about the upcoming blockbuster that is [Captain America: Civil War](tag:994409), is the fact that while Iron man and Cap are sure to get to beating the hell out of each other, there is still a main villain to be paying attention to.

This fella.
This fella.

Set to be played by the talented Daniel Bruhl, the notorious Marvel villain will be shooting his way onto the big screen just in time to watch Stark and Rogers have an argument.

Shush, Loki.
Shush, Loki.

Many fans are speculating that the man will actually prove to be the reason that the stars-and-stripes super soldier and our favorite can opener make up - so they together can face his threat and (hopefully) defeat him. Happiness.

Personally, I'm happy that they're making a big deal of this character. Being a reader of the comics, I think it's good that Baron Zemo will get the full attention of The Avengers, and not just one superhero. He certainly isn't an easy guy to take down.

See what I mean?

In terms of more than just his character on paper, Baron Zemo's cinematic adaptation was recently spoken about in front of the press by none other than Scarlet Witch herself, a.k.a. Elizabeth Olsen. She spoke to numerous websites and papers, and luckily, one intelligent reporter had the initiative to ask what she thought of the next big Marvel film.

"I think [Captain America: Civil War is] going to be the best one. For real, I am very excited to see it myself... Daniel Bruhl is an incredible actor and he's playing the main villain in it, and he's incredible! It's a movie about people as opposed to robots this time. So it's darker and it's allowed to be darker because it gets more in the mindset of humans rather than machines."

So it all sounds good for us fans. After the somewhat joke that was made of Ultron, it will be good to actually get a memorably horrific and evil villain projected onto that big screen in your local cinema. As Miss Olsen says, it's not about robots anymore, so it can delve much deeper into the depths of the human mind.

If you want to read more about the possible descent of the superhero genre into a darker area, you can do so here.

But aside from that, it's said that Elizabeth thinks it'll be the best Marvel movie to date. So that's definitely good news.

But hey - what do you guys think? Will Baron Zemo make Captain America: Civil War be the darkest Marvel movie to date? Leave your thoughts in the comments, or take the poll! Until next time guys :)
