Some fans are a bit disappointed regarding the typecast of Bruhl as a German. One fan shared their disappointment by adding, "He always gets cast as german villains." Another fan chimed in by adding, "Hollywood always cast him for german roles! But I really like him, he's good actor!" When Bruhl and Disney+ come together, it immediately takes the fans back to the 2021 internet sensation, the famous 'Zemo dance' from Marvel's Disney+ series 'The Falcon and the Winter Soldier'. And ever since the announcement for 'Kaiser Karl' is made, some fans are connecting both the references and celebrating the news. One fan commented with a wordplay by writing, "Kaiser Zemo," while another shared a GIF of the famous Zemo dance moves to share their excitement for the news.
