Zemo Actor Says He Wouldn’t Trust His Falcon & Winter Soldier Character

Zemo. Or rather, Baron Helmut Zemo. He’s turning out to be a cool guy in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. He finally has a super power; he was rich like Batman all along. He’s got the plane, fancy vintage cars, that coat, and ALL the dance moves.


Actor Daniel Bruhl has returned from Captain America: Civil War to play my favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe villain. In last week’s episode, Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes were forced to work with the villain in order to stop a greater threat of militant super soldiers. But, can they trust him?

Talking to THR, Bruhl was asked if he would trust his character, Baron Helmut Zemo:

No, never. (Laughs.) And that’s the good thing. If it’s hard to read and tell what somebody is up to, that ambiguity — which people always enjoy and I do enjoy — is always fun. So, yeah, you shouldn’t really trust him. But I guess it has become apparent that he is not an evil supervillain; there’s more to him, which we already know from the other movie. But in the conversations between the three of them, we have intensified the very human side of Zemo. I disagree with his radical methods, but it’s understandable based on where he comes from. So I understand if people empathize with Zemo, and I would understand if everybody joins Team Zemo by the end of the show.
