With [Captain America: Civil War](tag:994409) just a few short months away, fans all over the world are feeling the hype to see their favorite heroes go head to head. But there is one key thing I want to touch base on here.
That being Baron Helmut Zemo.
While it has already been confirmed that Zemo will be played by Daniel Bruhl, he is said to be one of the villains of the film. The other villains in the line up are Crossbones (Frank Grillo) and presumably Secretary Ross (William Hurt). But which one of these guys is going to be the true main villain of the movie?
Well, my guess is that Baron Zemo will play the role of the main antagonist for the movie. His role could center on him pulling the strings on the conflicts between Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr) due to the aftermath of the events in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
In the comic storyline, Iron Man went to Zemo for help and he reluctantly agreed to send in some super villain prisoners to help in the fight against the freedom fighters for the government.
While in this case for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I think that Zemo will probably have a much bigger role here than he did in the comic storyline with him just playing the role of main antagonist.
Maybe Zemo will be the new leader of HYDRA taking over from where they fell in Age of Ultron, or he will be recruiting villains for his own variation of the Masters of Evil group. And while it is said that Bruhl will reprise the role of Zemo in future films, it is still unconfirmed who will be the lineup for the Masters of Evil. My guess is: Zemo, Baron Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor; Doctor Strange), Hela (Cate Blanchett; Thor: Ragnarok) and Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis; Black Panther). Maybe more.
