‘Zemo’ Suits Up In Unused ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Concept Art

Zemo Concept HeaderWhile we didn’t see him suit up in the film and it really wouldn’t have fit in with the plot, it seems that The Russo Brothers did consider giving ‘Zemo’ a look much closer to his comic book counterpart. Some unused concept art from Captain America: Civil War has made it’s way online, which seems to be from conceptual artist Andy Park, of the character suitted up.

I’m glad they didn’t go for this suit in the film because it would have definitely felt out of place. That being said, with the character seemingly being set up to have a larger role down the line, I’d love to see him wearing something along these lines when he does (hopefully) return to the MCU. Maybe without the animal print collar though. Check out the concept art and let us know what you think about it in the comments section below.

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.”

Captain America: Civil War is currently in theaters.

I write stuff. Sometimes.

  • capwulf

    This looks amazing. I love it.

  • Radar Technician Matt

    That was one of my disappointments. Having Zemo without his iconic purple hoodie/suit, was a missed opportunity. At least… he’s still alive.
    If only something like this…

    • Jeremy Flores

      It would’ve been cool to see Zemo’s iconic getup, but it wouldn’t have fit what the Russos were going with their subverted take on the villain in Civil War. Definitely hope to see the costume in future films though, most likely Black Panther and/or Infinity War.

    • stlang

      Making him maskless probably gave Daniel Bruhl a better performance, especially when the character had lost so most, and having him built from revenge.

      Waiting with the mask is a better idea.

  • Lorenzo Ladogana

    The design is really good, and i hope they’ll go with that in future movies. In THIS movie, it would have felt pleonastic, since Crossobones has a mask and is defaced too.

  • Worldmind

    I wonder if we will see the Thunderbolts

    • Andrew Rawlings

      The thing about the Thunderbolts is that they really benefitted from people knowing their history as villains and Masters of Evil. Then again if Suicide Squad does well Marvel might decide to bring out their answer to it.

    • guest.

      Civil War/Post Civil War Government picked Thunderbolts would be an awesome story to see on screen. I’m thinking Tony and Ross start recruiting and making random “heroes” that get taken over by Zemo for the end of Avengers 4 into Phase 4. I’m talking Atlas, Task Master, Bullseye, led by War Machine and Iron Man with Vision. Surprise appearance from Red Hulk.


    So, this is Marvel’s version of Cobra Commander??

    • Bjacks

      You probably didn’t realize this (since you dislike all things Marvel), but the character of Baron Zemo predates Cobra Commander.

      • Joseph Chaisson

        He doesn’t care he just wants to continue this stupid troll war.

        • SAMURAI36

          You mad bro?

          • Joseph Chaisson

            Not at all. Tell me this, since when does stating facts show case emotions?

          • SAMURAI36

            Since both notions are not mutually exclusive. I notice you only have something to say when it comes to me and certain people but not others.

            You (and others) wanna play troll police when it suits you and your POV. Which is why I clown you (and others) every chance I get, whenever you try to play the role of Paul Blart, Internet Cop.

          • Joseph Chaisson

            No one is playing troll police. You tend to comment only to get a rise from other people. You make sure you start an argument on the comment section.

          • SAMURAI36

            If you say so. Again, you only comment, when you feel a way about something I’ve said. And if you think I’m the only person here looking to get a rise out of people, then you’re either blind, or stupid.

          • Joseph Chaisson

            I comment on a lot of things. I also let people know not to comment with your because you’re a troll. You bate people into a dumb comment section war then get insulted that someone called you a troll and start calling people names. Sorry if truth hurts.

          • SAMURAI36

            worst off, you rarely even comment here. And second, when you do, it’s usually to comment on my comments. I can’t think of a time when you’ve chastised some of these Marvel trolls, the way you’re doing to me. Quit being a hypocrite. Either do it for all, or do it for none.

            EDIT: If you or anyone else doesn’t like what I’m saying, or how I say it, then feel free to ignore me. Plenty of people do it, & in fact, I’ve gotten real good at ignoring some of the ridiculous folks on here as well. In fact, I’m about 2 or 3 responses away from ignoring YOU too.

          • Joseph Chaisson

            I ignore you all the time. I do comment on Hollywood hero all the time. I just notice you go out of your way to start trouble I simply let other know that’s your goal. Fellow users understand this. It gets annoying after reading several weeks of you going on to comment sections and specifically targeting tou agenda by stating comments you know will start something.

            Please stop pretending that you’re more then a troll. If you love DC great you have the killing joke to look forward too. Then a movie that specifically did reshoot me to include more jokes after DeadPool wow the world (except China it didn’t open in China and it still did almost 800 mill world wide)

          • SAMURAI36

            Yeah, are you drunk while typing this? Cuz that whole second paragraph reads like a meth-head’s rant.
            Otherwise, all you’re doing is repeating yourself. “You’re a troll, you’re a troll, you’re a troll”. You’re not even responding to what’s been said to you.
            And LOL, if this is your idea of ignoring me, then I’d half expect you to be in my closet when I get home, if you actually start paying attention to me.
            That said, CONGRATS!! Your 15 minutes of fame are over, & you’ve actually graduated to my ignore list. Feel free to send a post card from ignoresville. And since you seem to have so much of an issue with actually ignoring people, I’ll show you how it’s done.

      • SAMURAI36

        You probably didn’t really this (since you wanna come to the defense of Marvel), but the LOOK of Cobra Commander predates the LOOK they used in this rendition of Zemo.

    • Cobra Commander was also created and designed by Marvel in collaboration with Hasbro. Larry Hamma created the character, and GI Joe was originally a pitch for a S.H.I.E.L.D based toy/comic book line. You can see a lot of crossover of design elements from the Jet Packs that are straight out of a Steranko comic, to designs like Cobra Commander that owe a lot to the Hydra agents on which they were based.

  • Andrew Rawlings

    It would have been cool to see Zemo don the pink head-sock at least once even if it were just part of his plan to misdirect the heroes into thinking he was a cliched super-villain bent on world domination (which he, sort of, did anyway). Still it was fun to watch the Avengers taken apart by an unassuming man who’s only motive is revenge.

  • By Whedon’s Lisp!

    The nature of the avengers is there will be collateral damage. And it never gets resolved in civil war… I just dony want to continually make a big deal about it in every movie the way they have for the last avengers movie and now this one.

    At least with bvs they sort of resolved this issue enough for the story to move on. I also liked that bvs went for a larger world view about it.

  • Alejandro Gonzalez

    I was disappointed that the character was changed. Yes, we saw his intellect, but it would have been cooler to see his fighting skills, at least once. Also, his iconic look. They should showed him wearing something similar. It was like a super watered down version of Zemo.

    Would have loved to see the hood as part of the uniform for his Sokovian black ops team. Maybe Sokovia’s national colours could include that magenta/purple. Then at least when/if he ever did wear it, there would have been a legit reason for the hood to exist and not just fan service. I mean if he had gotten burned or something, then had to don his old uniform (with hood) in his next appearance, then hey that’d be cool.
