The Führer feels... how does he put it.... the Red Skull has been indulged long enough!
~ Schneider commending over Hitler's loss of faith over Schmidt.
Schneider is a minor antagonist in the 2011 Marvel film Captain America: The First Avenger. He is a high-ranking Schutzstaffel officer who served for the Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.
He was portrayed by Erich Redman.
Schneider joined the Nazi Party following the end of World War I, effectively rising himself up to become Major General of the Nazi Army and becoming a loyal soldier to Hitler. However, unlike Hitler, Schneider grew doubtful over Red Skull's intention of utilizing HYDRA's weapons with the usage of the Norse gods' magic to bring forth a new world order.
In 1943, Schneider and his two colleagues (Roeder and Hutter) were sent by Hitler to Schmidt's base to question him about the progress in developing advanced weapons for the Nazis. During the tour over the base, Schneider expressed Hitler's loss of faith in Schmidt, saying that "the Red Skull" was indulged long enough due to shortages on soldiers over the past few years. A provoked Schmidt showed Schneider and his colleagues his latest weapon: a Tesseract-powered cannon.
Though it would seemed that Schneider and his colleagues are unimpressed by the new weapon, things took a turn for the worst when Hutter learns that Schmidt is targeting many world capitals (including Berlin), realizing that Schmidt and HYDRA have defected from the Nazis. Schmidt then uses his cannon to vaporize Hutter, making a horrified Schneider and Roeder realize that Schmidt isn't bluffing about his advanced weapons. Schmidt then uses his cannon to vaporize both Schneider and Roeder, cementing HYDRA's new occupation as a group independent from the Nazis.
