'Rush' star Daniel Bruhl joins 'Captain America: Civil War'

It seems that almost everyone in Hollywood has been in a Marvel movie so far and Marvel is adding another fantastic actor to the mix. Rush and Inglourious Basterds star Daniel Bruhl is joining the cast of Captain America: Civil War. The news was announced by Marvel yesterday afternoon. Marvel gave no other details on the story beyond a quote from studio head Kevin Feige, who said that "With Daniel's ability to deliver intense, nuanced performances, we knew that we had found yet another great actor to share the screen with some of our biggest heroes." Marvel broke the news before Latino Review's El Mayimbe and The Wrap's Jeff Sneider could break the story. However, Mayimbe and Sneider both delivered some more interesting details.


Sneider was one of the first people to tweet about the casting, and in his tweet, he reported that Bruhl was playing a villain in the film. In his article over at The Wrap, Sneider also reported that Bruhl may have signed on for more than one film. According to Sneider's sources, Bruhl could be playing the main villain in Doctor Strange, which would be big. Many people then asked Mayimbe who Bruhl was playing in the film, which he replied to be tweeting "BARON MORDO!!!" 

I'm not familiar with Baron Mordo, but I'm very excited about this casting. Rush was one of my favorite films of 2013, and Bruhl gives a terrific performance in that film. He's also very good in Inglourious Basterds, one of my favorite films. It's safe to say that Bruhl is one of my favorite young actors and I'm very happy that he's taking his talents to Marvel. Captain America: Civil War is being directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Chadwick Boseman and Daniel Bruhl. It will hit theaters on May 6, 2016.
