Whoever scores the role of the villain in Captain America: Civil War has some big shoes to fill. Hugo Weaving killed it as Red Skull when you watch Captain America: The First Avenger online and Sebastian Stan was beyond brilliant as the title character in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Now that Marvel has released the name of the actor set to go bad in Captain America: Civil War, we have the utmost confidence that they could not have done any better. Rush star Daniel Bruhl has been cast as a yet unidentified villain in the movie, which tells us that Iron Man and Cap don’t go to battle just yet. There’s one foe that they have to overcome, and he’ll be played by Bruhl.
There are a few rumors out there that are also saying that this character will carry over and be the baddie in Doctor Strange, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
Kevin Feige is clearly thrilled with the incredible talent he has scored for Captain America: Civil War. “With Daniel’s ability to deliver intense, nuanced performances, we knew we had found yet another great actor to share the screen with some of our biggest heroes,” the Marvel Studio head said.
Of course he didn’t exactly say what Bruhl would be doing, but sources close to the production say that he will be one, if not one of many, bad guys in the third Captain America movie.
