Rush actor Daniel Bruhl will bring the classic villain, Baron Helmut Zemo, to the big screen for the Captain America: Civil War.

The 36-year-old actor said he will play Baron Helmut Zemo who is depicted as a Nazi scientist and weapon expert in the comics, reported Ace Showbiz.

"I think I can tell you that without being thrown into Marvel prison ... ," he joked.

"For the first few days I'll walk around like a little boy, just amazed by the megalomania of it. It's such a huge project. We could do 20 films with the budget."

His villainous character is rumoured to have a smaller role in the upcoming third Captain America movie before later returning to take the role of a primary antagonist in a Doctor Strange stand-alone movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch.

Civil War will hit theatres on May 6, 2016. Anthony and Joe Russo return as directors, Chris Evans as the titular hero, Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Frank Grillo as Crossbones, and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther. They will also be joined by a new Spider-Man.
