Baron Zemo Will Not Wear The Signature Mask In Captain America: Civil War

Baron Zemo will be the latest villain to enter the lucrative Marvel films when he makes his debut in next summer's "Captain America: Civil War."

And though there aren't many specifics out there of how the former top scientist of the Nazi party will be used against Steve Rogers and other members of the Avengers, we did get a little piece of news from the actor playing him, Daniel Brühl ("Inglorious Bastards").

While promoting his next movie, "Burnt," starring opposite Bradley Cooper (in theaters October 30), Brühl told Business Insider that Zemo will be without one of his trademark looks.

"He does not wear the mask," he said, referring to the purple cloak the character is famous for wearing after a vat of powerful adhesive, known as Adhesive X, spilled all over him during a fight with Captain America, preventing Zemo from ever removing it.

"You would be surprised, it's different than what you'd think," said Brühl, talking about the Zemo character we see in "Civil War." "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."

So don't expect Zemo to be a carbon-copy of what's in the comics.

"Civil War" will focus on the aftermath of the events that occurred in the last Avengers movie, "Age of Ultron," which has caused politicians to form a governing body to determine when an incident warrants the Avengers to be called upon. This leads to friction within the team, coming at an inopportune time as another new enemy, likely Zemo, makes his presence known.

Brühl said it's not out of the question that Zemo could return for future movies.

"There's a possibility," said the actor. "That's the way it's written."

"Captain America: Civil War" opens in theaters May 6, 2016.

Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

Regular listeners to the Empire Podcast (sorry about the whole Call Me By Your Name theme ear worm, incidentally) will recall that we had Taron Egerton as a guest on the 300th episode, recorded in front of an audience on Valentine's Day. He talked up his hope that Elton John biopic Rocketman would finally come together, and now Paramount is closing a deal to finance and distribute the film worldwide.

The film, which has been through at least one previous incarnation (Michael Gracey directing Tom Hardy in the lead) is reuniting the Eddie The Eagle team of Egerton, director Dexter Fletcher and producer Matthew Vaughn, who has been trying to get the movie made for a while, with Elton's blessing and the support of his company, Rocket Pictures.

Featuring a script by Lee Hall, Rocketman will follow the career of the artist formerly known as Reginald Dwight, from a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music to a global superstar, through his influential and enduring musical partnership w…

From Academy Award-nominated director Jason Reitman and Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody – the team behind JUNO and YOUNG ADULT – comes a new grown-up comedy with their signature style of irreverence and insight. Academy Award winner Charlize Theron gives an extraordinary performance in TULLY - the story of a parent stretched to her limit, the bonds of female friendship and how we can embrace the messiness of life. While it might not have been intentional, TULLY completes a trilogy that began with JUNO and YOUNG ADULT. Each features a female protagonist at a different stage of her life, and each film explores how complicated it is to find happiness.
