Move over Tom Hiddleston and Loki, there is a new accent wearing villain in town and he is ready to steal our hearts while trying to destroy the world. His name is Daniel Bruhl and you probably know him from ‘Inglourious Basterds’ where he stole the show as German’s finest Nazi. Bruhl followed up his performance by going on to co-star with Chris Hemsworth in the racing biopic ‘Rush’. This familiarity with Hemsworth may have lead directly to Bruhl getting pulled right into the Marvel Universe.
The Marvel team held an event in L.A. two weeks ago in order to announce some of their filming plans for the next couple of years. They detailed their ‘Phase 3’ plans and didn’t leave out too much info. Among the things they talked about was the fact that Robert Downey Jr. would be joining the new ‘Captain America’ flick–effectively turning it into the ‘Civil War’ story arc that is so popular among fans.
Bruhl was added on to the roster of ‘Captain America 3’ with the note that he can play ‘intense, layered, characters’ with their own intelligent genius. Fans like Keith Mann were quick to consider Bruhl as a front runner for the role of ‘Doctor Strange’ but other signs have come out to say that he could be playing a villain opposite of Doctor Strange. We’ll have to wait and see as more details float out.
