Rumors Of Who Daniel Brühl Is Playing In Captain America: Civil War

A Disney casting call may has told us who one of the villains in Captain America: Civil War is. Possible spoilers ahead.

This is running around the web today and folks are calling it legit, I'm a bit hesitant. If it's true then this is definitely a spoiler.

According to the casting noticeRush star, Daniel Brühl will play Baron Zemo, the iconic Hydra villain form the comics. It was announced back in November that Brühl had joined the cast but not as what character.

In case the notice gets pulled or changed, I grabbed a screen shot of it below… I also used a photo of Zemo to cover the Autoclub ad….

For now, I would say take this with a grain of salt. It may be completely real… but Marvel is insanely good at keeping things secret so it seems strange to see them put that much information out for a casting call. Second thing that makes me weary is the line in the piece that says Captain America and Iron Man are feuding over the Superhuman Registration Act. Now that is what they feuded over in the comic series, but in the Marvel Cinematic Universe there really is no one to register. It's not like New York is full of costumed adventurers so my thought is they will be fighting over something different in the film. And throw in the fact that the casting call says they answer to SHIELD which is in pieces…. so we'll see how this story develops.
