The first official look at Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl) in his purple mask for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier has been released. Audiences were first introduced to the cold and calculating villain in Captain America: Civil War in 2016, where he manipulated events to pit Captain America and Iron Man against each other. Even though he was detained in the end, his mission to break up the Avengers was successful.
While many found Zemo to be a worthy adversary to the MCU’s biggest heroes, he did so without his trademark comics costume. On the page, Zemo traditionally has a purple mask concealing his face, but this wasn’t featured in Captain America: Civil War. Concept art for the film has shown that producers did consider the traditional mask, and it was revealed this summer at San Diego Comic-Con that Zemo would get his accessory when he next appeared in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.
