COMIC REEL: Bruhl Confirms "Captain America: Civil War" Role; Marvel's Spider-Man Gets Possible Working Title


In an interview with the Independent, Daniel Bruhl confirmed that he is playing Baron Zemo in "Civil War" -- although he did so with hesitation.

When asked if he is playing Zemo, Bruhl replied, "I think I can tell you that without being thrown into Marvel prison..." The actor also commented on the film's budget and predicted how he might feel when he steps on set in a few weeks. "For the first few days I'll walk around like a little boy, just amazed by the megalomania of it. It's such a huge project. We could do 20 films with the budget."
