Captain America: Civil War (2016) Poster

Daniel Brühl: Zemo



  • [Zemo sits on a rock, listening to his wife's last recorded message on his cellphone] 

    Voice of Zemo's Wife : You should have seen his little face. Just try, okay? I'm going to bed. I love you.

    [T'Challa sneaks up behind Zemo. He places his helmet on the ground] 

    T'Challa : I almost killed the wrong man.

    Zemo : Hardly an innocent one.

    [Zemo deletes the message] 

    T'Challa : Is this all you wanted? To see them rip each other apart?

    Zemo : [quietly]  My father lived outside the city. I thought we would be safe there. My son was excited. He could see the Iron Man from the car window. I told my wife "Don't worry. They're fighting in the city. We're miles from harm". And the dust cleared... and the screaming stopped... it took me two days until I found their bodies. My father... still holding my wife and son in his arms... and the Avengers?

    [Zemo shakes his head] 

    Zemo : They went home.

    [Zemo smiles bitterly] 

    Zemo : I knew I couldn't kill them. More powerful men than me have tried. But if I could get them to kill each other...

    [a flashback: Captain America fights Iron Man] 

    Zemo : I'm sorry about your father. He seemed a good man, with a dutiful son.

    T'Challa : Vengeance has consumed you. It's consuming them. I'm done letting it consume me.

    [T'Challa retracts his claws] 

    T'Challa : Justice will come soon enough.

    Zemo : [spitefully]  Tell that to the dead.

    [Zemo places the gun under his chin and pulls the trigger. T'Challa grabs him and moves the gun away. The bullet misses] 

    T'Challa : The living are not done with you yet.

  • Zemo : Longing. Rusted. Seventeen. Daybreak. Furnace. Nine. Benign. Homecoming. One. Freight Car... Soldier?

    Bucky Barnes : ...Ready to comply.

  • Zemo : An empire toppled by its enemies can rise again. But one which crumbles from within? That's dead... forever.

  • Zemo : Mission Report: December 16, 1991.

  • Zemo : When S.H.I.E.L.D. fell, Black Widow released Hydra files to the public. Millions of pages. Much of it encrypted, not easy to decipher, but... I have experience... and patience. A man can do anything if he has those.

  • Everett K. Ross : So how does it feel? To spend all that time, all that effort, and to see it fail so spectacularly?

    Zemo : Did it?

  • Zemo : [to Captain America]  I've thought about nothing else for over a year. I studied you, I followed you, but now that you're standing here I just realized... there's a bit of green in the blue of your eyes.


    Zemo : How nice to find a flaw.

  • Captain America : You're Sokovian. Is that what this is about?

    Zemo : Sokovia was a failed state long before you blew it to hell. No. I'm here because I made a promise.

    Captain America : You lost someone.

    Zemo : I lost everyone. And so will you.

  • Steve Rogers : Who are you? What do you want?

    Zemo : To see an empire fall.
