The most recent episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier featured one brief scene that immediately caught the attention of fans — Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl) showing off his dance skills at a Madripoor club. While speaking with Entertainment Weekly after the episode dropped last week, Brühl revealed that there was much more dancing footage that was left on the cutting room floow. “It was a long dance,” Brühl said. “There’s more to it, but they cut this little moment [for the show].” As you might imagine, fans wanted that footage and calls to #ReleaseTheZemoCut flooded social media. Well, Marvel has done good and released the footage, so please enjoy one looped hour of Baron Zemo dancing.
Daniel Brühl added that the dance sequence was “improvised when I saw the crowd dancing, going loco. I felt the beat and was like, Zemo has been sitting in a dodgy German prison cell for years. So, he needs to let off some steam and show his moves. Let’s go for it!“
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier follows Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) as they team up for a global adventure that tests their abilities — and their patience. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was helmed by Kari Skogland with Malcolm Spellman serving as head writer, and in addition to Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, the series also stars Daniel Brühl as Zemo, Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter, and Wyatt Russell as John Walker. You can check out a review of the premiere of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier from our own Alex Maidy right here, and the fourth episode of the six-episode series is slated to drop this Friday.
