German star Bruhl appeared as the scheming villain Zemo in 2016's Captain America: Civil War, which saw him instigate a plot that tore the Avengers apart.
VanCamp appeared in Civil War after making her debut in 2014's Captain America: The Winter Soldier as spy Sharon Carter, the grand niece of Captain America's (Chris Evans) former flame Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell).
