    The Falcon and THE WINTERTIME Soldier Releases Zemo Dancing Extended Cut

    The Falcon and The Winter Soldier release Zemo dancing extended cutAfter the quick frames of Zemo dancing from last week’s The Falcon and The Winter Solider went viral, Marvel Studios has released an extended cut of the scene. Who would have thought that the very man who only wanted to tear the Avengers apart would also want to let loose on the dancefloor?RELATED: CS Interview: The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Head Writer Malcolm SpellmanAfter a Twitter account called @ZemoDancingTo took the quick fist-pumping frames and set it to so many different songs, it was only a matter of time before we got more of the showstopping Baron of the dancefloor scene.pic.twitter.com/BlIwrUhGcQ— The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (@falconandwinter) April 8, 2021Yes, Daniel Brühl’s brilliant turn as enemy turned asset Zemo is even more popular than Good Value Captain America John Walker. Only one has been confirmed to have killed lots of people including Black Panther’s father. Even Bucky seems to have put aside that he was framed for that whole Captain America: Civil War mess. The previous episode played up Zemo’s aristocratic high-life demeanor while hinting here and there that he’s not to be trusted. But how quickly we forgot when he got his dancing shoes on in Madripoor.About the showstopping scene Brühl told Entertainment Weekly:“It’s so hysterical. [That moment] 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! I enjoyed so much the reaction of Anthony and Sebastian looking at me. Still, I was 100 percent sure that they would cut it out. I was really surprised and happy that they kept it. It was a long dance. There’s more to it, but they cut this little moment. I didn’t know what was happening, but I then received all these messages from my friends cracking up. My friends who know me well know I’m an embarrassing, passionate dancer on the floor but it would be different moves. It would be the Spanish side of me kicking in and doing some matador, flamenco moves, going down on my knees. Highly embarrassing for my friends.”RELATED: CS Interview: The Falcon and The Winter Soldier star Erin KellymanWatch Zemo dancing for an HOUR in the player below![embedded content]

    Marvel Reveals New Stills From The Falcon and the wintertime Soldier

    Marvel Reveals New Stills From The Falcon and the Winter Soldier The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’s premiere date is fast approaching, and Marvel continues to pull back the curtain on Sam and Bucky’s next adventure in the MCU. The studio (via ComicBook.com) has just released 10 new photos from the upcoming series. You can check them out for yourself in the gallery below. Not surprisingly, most of these shots highlight the title characters (sometimes together, sometimes on their own). Among these are better looks at Bucky’s new cybernetic arm, which trades in the sterling silver of previous MCU escapades in favor of a black and gold motif. We also see new stills of Sam Wilson with Captain America’s shield, one of which features him wearing a suit and tie (which, admittedly, isn’t the best outfit to practice shield-throwing with). However, other images feature some of the series’ supporting players. One shot in particular shows Sam and Bucky fighting alongside Emily VanCamp’s Sharon Carter, who returns to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the first time since Captain America: Civil War bowed in 2016. Additionally, there’s a new behind-the-scenes candid of Anthony Mackie, director Kari Skogland, and actress Adepero Oduye. Until now, Oduye’s role on the series has been a mystery. But the photo’s description indicates that she’s playing Sarah Wilson, Sam’s sister from the comics. Unfortunately, this new batch doesn’t include any additional shots of Daniel Brühl’s Baron Zemo or Wyatt Russell’s U.S. Agent. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier hits Disney+ on March 19.
