Back in November, we learned RUSH star Daniel Bruhl had joined CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, but there weren't any details on his role in film, other than the fact he'll be playing an antagonist.

Many assumed Daniel Bruhl will appear as Captain America baddie Baron Zemo, and a casting call for the upcoming movie has confirmed Bruhl will play the villain. There are two Baron Zemos in the Marvel comics (Heinrich and his son Helmut), and the casting call is more than likely referring to the younger Zemo. Like his Dad, Helmut wants to save the world by taking it over, and in the Civil War comics, Iron Man asks Helmut to help recruit villains for his cause.

The casting call also revealed a synopsis for CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR.

In Captain America: Civil War, billionaire Tony Stark is pitted against Captain America aka Steve Rogers in an ethical face-off over the U.S. government's Superhuman Registration Act, which requires all superhuman individuals register their powers and report to S.H.I.E.L.D.

What are your thoughts on Daniel Bruhl playing Baron Zemo in The Russo Brothers movie?

I liked Daniel Bruhl ever since I saw GOODBYE, LENIN!

back in 2003. I also thought he rocked his role in INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS as the good-guy sniper who just happened to be fighting on the wrong side. RUSH showed he could play an occasionally unsympathetic character, I'm glad to see him doing more work.

When they say "SHIELD"...

I think they mean Tony Stark's new SHIELD organization. From the on set production stills online we saw Tony has a training camp with troops doing runs. It can explain easily why it's Iron Man pitted against Capt. My curiosity is how will the Agents of Shield show play into this.

Good question. But keep in mind that we haven't gotten to the end of Season 2 with A0S. And it's been said that this season while lead directly into Avengers 2. Perhaps by the end of the season they are made back into a legitimate organization, which is why the on set photos show SHIELD training camps, Couslon needs to get more operatives ready.

That being said, Season 3 will presumably have a build up where Coulson is pushing for a Superhero Registration Act to help police people with

That being said, Season 3 will presumably have a build up where Coulson is pushing for a Superhero Registration Act to help police people with super powers and also give them proper training and direction (perhaps stemming from helping train Skye with her powers).

"report to S.H.I.E.L.D?" So they'll become a legitimate/authorised organisation again?

Still reading Civil War - keep stopping and starting and it's possible I'll never get to the end (don't think I've got to the middle) but I find it hard to side with Cap's stance on it - all super powered beings should be expected to sign up to it..or simply not use their powers and remain quiet. Certainly, as far as I've got in the source material, that's all that is being asked.

This has nothing to do with this article, but the Fantastic Four trailer is out. Just watched it on IMDb. Just thought you'd all like to know.

I wonder if they stay true to source material and keep his costume the same and change it to look more modern.

But excited to see what he brings to the character and MCU.
