Last month it was announced that Martin Freeman, most famous for playing Dr. John Watson in the British crime drama Sherlock TV series and Bilbo Baggins in the Hobbit film franchise, was cast to play a part in the upcoming Marvel film Captain America: Civil War.
Exactly what his role will be in the film has yet to be announced, which has caused much speculation in the online world as to who he might be cast as. One common idea is that he will play the government interrogator Everret K. Ross who interrogates superheros to see if they are a threat or not. Fans believe that Freeman will reprise this role in the upcoming film Marvel film Black Panther which will further explore the relationship between Ross and Black Panther (more on this here).
I love Martin Freeman as an actor. From his role as Tim in the UK version of The Office to his role as John Watson in Sherlock and, of course, as Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit, Freeman shows his versatility as an actor by nailing multiple roles that are all completely different. For that reason, I’m super excited to see what Freeman will bring to the table in this new Marvel film. While I have my own ideas of who Freeman will play, regardless of who it will be I am thrilled to learn he’ll be making an appearance as a (possibly) recurring character in the Marvel film series. The film is set to be released next year, so only time will tell before we finally find out who Martin Freeman will be playing in Captain America: Civil War.
