No Mask For Daniel Brühl's 'Baron Zemo' In CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

No Mask For Daniel Brühl's 'Baron Zemo' In CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

Marvel have a decent track record at adapting their heroes and villains from the page to the screen, but often elect to go with more modern/practical takes on their costumes. It sounds like Daniel Brühl's Baron Zemo might be the latest to have his look updated. Read on for more...


So much focus has been put on Chris Evans' and Robert Downey Jr's duelling protagonists in the build up to Captain America: Civil War, that it's been easy to forget Daniel Brühl may actually be playing the real villain of the piece in the notorious Baron Zemo. The talented actor recently shed a little more light on his role while promoting his latest movie Burnt

Sadly (and perhaps, unsurprisingly), he began by revealing that certain elements of the villain's classic look will not be making the jump from the page to the screen. "He does not wear the mask," he told Business Insider, adding that his take on the character will be "different than what you'd think" and is "loosely connected" to the Zemo from the comics. "That's what I like about the Marvel guys," he admitted, "Some of the characters and things they're dealing with always reference to current events so my character is from a different area than you would think."

Given Zemo's links to Nazi Germany, it make sense that the Russo Brothers and Marvel are looking to freshen up the character for a more modern take - but many fans will still be dissappointed to hear he won't even wear his iconic mask. In more encouraging news, those worried that Zemo could be a typical Marvel 'one-and-done' villain may be happy to learn that "there's a possibility" Brühl could return for future movies. "That's the way it's written," he stated.

What do you think of these developments? Are you gutted we won't be seeing Zemo's iconic costume and mask, or are you okay with the thought of his look getting updated? And would you like to see 
Brühl return as a recurring villain? Be sure to sound off below!
