Captain America Civil War: What is Baron Zemo’s Agenda?

The character of Baron Helmut Zemo is set to debut in the big Marvel cinematic universe, although he will only be referred to as Zemo in the upcoming Civil war movie. The tone of the movie is likely to be similar to Captain America Winter soldier which was more a sleek political thriller with superhero elements poured over it from above. In the latest teaser trailer, he is spotted in a scene possibly thinking of settling scores with Captain America. He will be played by actor Daniel Bruhl who appeared in movies like Rush, The Fifth Estate etc. He has solid affiliations with HYDRA and Masters of Evil in the past. He is the 13th Baron Zemo, son of Baron Heinrich Zemo who was a master Nazi scientist during the World war 2 and an enemy of Captain America. The Zemo dynasty is similar to Strucker family passing the mantle from one generation to another.

He has a big role to play in the Sokovia Accords i.e set of internationally ratified legal documents that provide regulation and framework for the military deployment of enhanced individuals and maintaining international rules of combat in the event of a war. It was particularly meant to control the unlimited powers enjoyed by superhero teams like Avengers, drafted by UN & signed by over 170 countries in the wake of the trail of devastation left by Ultron in the Battle of Sokovia. He is trying to extract more information about the possible hit performed by Winter soldier in the 1990’s, in a way his character arc is similar to Black Panther. It’s possible that he may have lost a family member at the hands of Avengers in the battle against Ultron and now he sees them as bad guys. Well…we shall see how does Marvel treat this great comic-book character onscreen.
