No Mask for Baron Zemo in ‘Captain America: Civil War’

Baron_zemo01In the first bit of truly bad news about next summer’s Captain America: Civil War, actor Daniel Bruhl revealed that his portrayal of Baron Zemo will be quite unique.

For starters, he will not wear Zemo’s iconic purple mask!

“He does not wear the mask,” said Bruhl, adding that his portrayal of the character will be very different from the printed page:

“You would be surprised; it’s different than what you’d think. It’s loosely connected to this character. But that’s what I like about the Marvel guys, 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.”

In the comics, Zemo has no choice but to wear the mask, because it was permanently bonded to his face with the mysterious Adhesive X — which prevents him from ever removing it.

Perhaps at some point in Civil War, the struggle with Captain America that resulted in the tragic spilling of Adhesive X will take place?

In any event, Brühl is ready to return as Zemo in future films. “There’s a possibility,” he said. “That’s the way it’s written.”

The synopsis for the movie is as follows:

Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.

“Captain America: Civil War” opens on May 6, 2016.
