Captain America: Civil War is set to be one of the most eagerly awaited comic book films of the year, in a year full of great comic book films (and some awful looking DC films). With a massive cast that no only reunited a lot of the MCU's fan favourite characters it also introduces several new characters, one of which will be played by Martin Freeman.
Since the announcement of his inclusion in the film fans have been eager to find out who he will be playing. Well, now his part has been revealed. Martin Freeman will be playing Everett Ross.
The name may be familiar to some comic book readers, who will recognise that Ross is the United States' main representative to Wakanda. This not only adds more to the inclusion of Black Panther in the film, but allows Freeman to appear in the upcoming Black Panther film (set for release in 2018, directed by Ryan Coogler and starring Chadwick Boseman and Andy Serkis).
Reports are stating that Freeman's version of Everett will be a member of the Joint Counter Terrorist Centre in Civil War. A newly released photo of Freeman has him standing beside Emily Van Camp's Sharon Carter, which has already resulted in fans speculating that she is also a member of the Joint Counter Terrorist Centre since the collapse of S.H.I.E.L.D. after the events of Captain America: Winter Solider.
Captain America: Civil War is set for release on April 29th.
