A lot of fans were taken by surprise at how The Falcon and the Winter Soldier presented Helmut Zemo who is making his Marvel Cinematic Universe return after five years. In Episode 3, it was revealed that Bucky Barnes and Sam Wilson were responsible for helping him break out of prison, and apparently, the duo made a pact with the cunning villain to help them uncover the mystery behind the resurgence of the super-soldier serum and the true identity of the Power Broker.

Heading into the series, the general belief within the Marvel fandom was that Zemo is out for payback against the Avengers for making his life a living hell and while that may still be part of his actual agenda, nobody expected to see him as a more grounded and likable character than he appears to be, despite the fact that he's actually a baron coming from a rich family.

Zemo even went viral following Episode 3 thanks to a hilarious scene that sees him strutting his killer dance moves. The scene was extremely short and some fans felt like they were robbed of something special. This led to the launch of the #ReleaseTheZemoCut movement which demands Marvel Studios to release an extended clip of Zemo dancing. Check out some of the reactions here:


Of course, given his villainous tendencies, it wouldn't be shocking if he ends up turning on both Bucky and Sam to exact some revenge for all the years he was imprisoned. Still, Zemo's run as a "good guy" has been so much fun and I wouldn't mind seeing him become a full-time ally or even take on an anti-hero role.

The latest episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is now streaming on Disney+.
