The Falcon and the Winter Soldier: all crazy for Zemo

release the zemo cut

In the third episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, the famous Baron Zemo finally appears, played by Daniel Brühl. Captain America: Civil War’s antagonist stole the show from Falcon and Bucky, wowing audiences with an iconic dance.

Interviewed by Entertainment Weekly, Brühl talked about the importance of showing even a more humorous and fun side of Zemo. The TV series has in fact shown the origins of Helmut as a baron and aristocrat and aims to show him more as an anti-hero than as a real villain.

The actor also revealed that the scene that sees Baron Helmut Zemo dancing was originally much longer.

That moment I completely improvised, when I saw people dancing I thought that Zemo had been sitting in a German prison cell for years and that he surely needed a moment to let off steam. And I started dancing and I liked the reaction of Anthony and Sebastian looking at me so much. However, I was sure they would cut the scene from the series. I was really surprised that they kept it. The scene where I was dancing was actually a little longer than the one shown in the episode.
