Pre-order information is not yet available, but those hoping to obtain this figure can join Sideshow’s RSVP list to receive a notification when it becomes available.
Take a closer look at Zemo’s figure in the video below.
Inspired by but also wholly different than his comic book counterpart, the MCU’s live-action Baron Zemo made his first appearance in the 2016 film Captain America: Civil War. Portrayed by Daniel Brühl, the Baron singlehandedly drove an irreparable wedge between the Avengers as a part of his revenge mission for what happened to Sokovia (and his family) in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Brühl reprised his role as Zemo in Disney+’s The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, a series that sees the return of Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson and Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes as the two team up on a high-flying, action-packed global adventure. Zemo’s epic comeback was both brilliant and unexpected, as the show peeled back the layers of the stoic and calculating villain to reveal the cherry blossom tea-drinking, dancing, ever resourceful Baron underneath.
The series finale saw Zemo imprisoned on the Raft after being handed over to the Dora Milaje, but he still had one final trick up his sleeve with his orchestration of the bombing that took out the rest of the Super Soldier Flag Smashers. Though his future in the MCU hasn’t been confirmed, make sure to read our top Five Reasons Why Daniel Brühl’s Baron Zemo Needs to Return to the MCU. (And hey, we’re definitely not giving up hope on the Thunderbolts just yet.)
