MovieCastingCall.org has put out a new casting call for Marvel's highly-anticipated Phase Three sequel Captain America: Civil War, which not only reveals that production will begin this April in Atlanta, Georgia, but seemingly confirms the villainous identity of Daniel Brühl's character, after he signed on to star in November. While it has always been suspected that Daniel Brühl is playing the villain, this casting call claims to reveal that the actor is playing Baron Zemo, a nefarious Hydra villain from the Civil War comics. In addition, the casting notice also has the first synopsis for Captain America: Civil War, which reads as follows.
"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 super powered individuals to register their powers and report to S.H.I.E.L.D."
What's interesting is that, at the end of last year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the entire S.H.I.E.L.D. organization was disbanded, so its possible that either Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man or the TV series Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. may feature the agency being rebuilt in some manner, before Captain America: Civil War hits theaters in May 2016. Chris Evans will return as Captain America, alongside Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Frank Grillo as Crossbones and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther. The casting call also seemingly confirms that Scarlett Johansson and Sebastian Stan will reprise their roles as Black Widow and The Winter Soldier, respectively.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo are returning to the helm for Captain America: Civil War, working from a script by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. Production will take place from April 4, 2015 to August 8, 2015. What do you think about the inclusion of Baron Zemo in this story?
