‘Captain America 3’: Daniel Bruhl to Play Villain

“Rush” actor Daniel Bruhl is set to play one of the villains in “Captain America: Civil War.”

Marvel made the announcement on Friday.

Disney’s third “Captain America” feature, that will co-star Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr., and feature a significant appearance by Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, is set for release May 6, 2016, and will launch the Civil War storyline from the Marvel comicbooks as Variety first reported.

Sources tell Variety that Bruhl, who co-starred in “Rush,” is not the main villain in “Captain America: Civil War” but could potentially be the top menace in Marvel’s “Doctor Strange.”

“It’s a big storyline,” Marvel’s Kevin Feige recently said of the Civil War, adding that “this is the Civil War of the cinematic universe, inspired by comicbook universe, but the Civil War that’s based on all of the other films, particularly (‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’) and (‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’).”

Bruhl most recently starred in “A Most Wanted Man” and “The Fifth Estate.” He is repped by WME.
