Time to don your dodgy superhero suit and brush up on your Marvel facts because today sees the UK release of Captain America: Civil War, which is set to be one of this year’s biggest films (it has raked in more than $15m at the US box office already). A sequel to 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it follows the mighty Avengers as they suffer an existential crisis after getting called out for, you know, destroying entire cities whenever they try to help someone. So prepare to witness Mr Chris Evans’ Cap’ pit his wits (and his physics-defying shield) against Mr Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man in a battle of ideals and metal-crushing punches.
All of this superhero stuff going way over your head? Fear not. Mr Daniel Brühl – he of Rush and Good Bye Lenin! fame – was far from a Marvel expert when he was asked to play the film’s villain Baron Zemo.
