In a surprising, yet very intriguing casting announcement, Martin Freeman has been added to the already star studded cast of Captain America: Civil War. However, it is unclear at this point in time who he will be playing. Marvel simply announced he is in the film, and that they are very happy to have him.
“From his roles as Bilbo Baggins and Doctor Watson to Tim in ‘The Office,’ Martin’s range from the dramatic to the comedic has consistently impressed us,” said Captain America: Civil War Producer Kevin Feige. “We couldn’t be more honored or excited to have such a talented actor join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
Now the obvious question is “who is he playing?” Well, that’s very tricky to talk about. On one hand, Freeman has done action-like roles in the past, as he has shown in both The Hobbit and Sherlock, but will he truly be a Marvel hero? Or what about a villain?
Another possible scenario is that he’ll be a key player in the politics in the film, not unlike how Robert Redford portrayed Alexander Pierce, a character who had a great impact on the film. We know that the government will be part of the reason behind the Civil War, so maybe Martin is a part of that?
Regardless, this is very exciting, and hopefully we’ll get confirmation on who he’ll be soon.
