Is Martin Freeman's Marvel character a goodie or a baddie? Will he be appearing in future movies? The Hobbit star answers those questions and much more while talking for the very first time about his "ambiguous" role in Captain America: Civil War.



It was a pleasant surprise back in May when it was announced that actor Martin Freeman would be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe through the highly-anticipated Captain America: Civil War . And while there have since been many rumors regarding his character, The Hobbit star talked for the first time about the role during a Meet & Greet at the Giffoni Film Festival over the weekend.

"I've done a few days shooting on the Civil War film," Freeman said (via). "I have 2 more days to go, so it's a relatively small part. Within the framework of the film, he is ambiguous. I like that you can't tell if he is a goodie or a baddie. But he works for the government and a part of his job, is to keep the superheroes and powers in check. Unless they fire me, it's a role that will carry on."




UPDATE: “He works for the American government,” Martin Freeman told BadTaste.IT of his Captain America: Civil War role in the video interview above (via ComingSoon.net). “He works in conjunction with the superheroes, and certain agencies that help to tame the superheroes power I suppose. So you’re not quite sure which side he’s on. It looks a little bit like he’s playing one game when actually he’s playing another. It’s the kind of character I like because it’s ambiguous and because you don’t know whether he’s good or bad. I like that area that isn’t black or white, I like the grays, because I think there’s just more fun to be had in not playing one obvious line.”

According to the most credible rumors, Martin Freeman's character in Captain America: Civil War will be some sort of interrogator and he will also return in the Black Panther movie alongside star Chadwick Boseman. This unconfirmed detail has led many to believe that the English actor is playing Everett Ross, an American Regent of Wakanda who worked as an adviser alongside government officials and the National Security Agency in the comics. And judging by what Freeman said about his involvement, those rumors and speculation might be accurate. What do you think?

Directed by Anthony & Joe Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain. Starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Chadwick Boseman, Emily VanCamp, Daniel Brühl, Frank Grillo, William Hurt, and Martin Freeman, Captain America: Civil War is set for release on May 6, 2016.
