The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Merch Reveals Baron Zemo in Mask

We already know that Baron Helmut Zemo will be back in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. After all, Daniel Bruhl's casting was one of the most exciting announcements about the highly anticipated Marvel Cinematic Universe series. Now, we have a better look at the MCU villain courtesy of an awesome toy.

It's no secret that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was supposed to premiere back in August. Unfortunately, production on the series has been delayed due to COVID-19, leading to the release date being pushed back to next year. However, the tie-in merchandise for the MCU show has been completed and the Funko POP! figure of Baron Zemo has been leaked online. You can check it out here.

We're loving the idea that Zemo is now known as Baron Zemo, hinting at the possibility that he will be an even more dangerous villain in the Marvel series. After all, he was only known as Zemo when he was initially introduced in Captain America: Civil War. With that in mind, we can't wait to see him go up against Bucky Barnes and Sam Wilson early next year.
