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.
