Ever since Martin Freeman was cast in Captain America: Civil War, fans have been asking, who will he play? Well today, that question is answered. Martin Freeman will be playing the character of Everett Ross.
Fans of the comics know Ross as the United States’ main representative in Wakanda so the reasons for the Black Panther to join the fray is now even clearer. The Hobbit star however will have a tweaked role in the film acing as a member of the Joint Counter Terrorist Centre. According to Empire’s report, they’re also banking on Freeman to have a role in the upcoming Black Panther movie as well.
What’s interesting is in the new image released, Freeman is seen standing with Emily Van Camp’s character, Sharon Carter. With SHIELD in ruins, we’re all still wondering where Sharon ended up, maybe now we know.
Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
