Marvel recently released a statement revealing that Martin Freeman has been cast, and set to appear in next year’s Captain America: Civil War. The statement is as kind and forthcoming as they come, with Kevin Feige stating; “We couldn’t be more honoured or excited to have such a talented actor join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.” The statement neglects to mention the role in which Freeman has been cast, leaving us fans with the only important question; who could he be playing?
I really doubt that he’s going to play a super powered character. He could be nothing more than a member of a government committee that is invoking the registration act, in which the conflict between our loveable heroes surrounds. However the terminology used in the official statement, stating that the actor will make his debut in Civil War, suggests that he will appear in multiple Marvel movies, and “Senator Freeman” seems like a waste of his talent.
Samuel L Jackson’s contract is apparently coming close to an end, so perhaps he could be a member of S.H.I.E.L.D. who later replaces Fury. I feel like he would make a great new head of S.H.I.E.L.D. On the flip side of that; he would make a great villain, someone who answers to Baron Zemo (played by Daniel Bruhl).
That’s the thing about Freeman, he’s such a great and versatile actor it’s really difficult to pinpoint just exactly who he might play, at this point.
