    In an interview with Screen Rant, he revealed a playful certainty about Zemo’s future, stating, “I mean, I’m still not dead, I’m very confident that I’ll be back.” This cheeky remark reflects Zemo’s cunning personality perfectly, leaving fans wondering where and when this villainous mastermind might pop up next. 

    Zemo’s journey in the MCU has been captivating. Introduced in ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ he emerged as a formidable foe driven by a singular purpose: revenge against the Avengers for the loss of his family in the Battle of Sokovia. 

    Unlike many MCU villains consumed by world domination or megalomania, Zemo’s motivations felt grounded in a relatable human emotion. This complexity made him a compelling antagonist, one we couldn’t help but feel a sliver of sympathy for.

    Brühl’s portrayal further elevated the character. He brought a quiet intensity and a surprising vulnerability to Zemo, making him a far cry from the stereotypical villain.  Additionally, his return in ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ showcased a new side of Zemo. This evolution left fans hungry for more, eager to see where Zemo’s path would lead.

    Where Could Zemo Resurface?


    With the ever-expanding MCU, the possibilities for Zemo’s return are plentiful. Rumors have swirled about a potential Thunderbolts movie featuring a team of reformed (or perhaps not-so-reformed) villains. So, Zemo’s strategic mind and leadership qualities make him a natural fit for such a group.  

    Brühl himself has expressed openness to the idea, hinting that Zemo might even end up being a late recruit on the team. Additionally, ‘Secret Invasion’ promises a Skrull infiltration of Earth. Zemo’s resourcefulness and knowledge of the superhero world could make him a valuable asset in the fight against these shape-shifting alien invaders.
