Martin Freeman teases his secretive Captain America: Civil War character

Martin Freeman has been noticeably quiet about his upcoming role is Captain America: Civil War. With Freeman being a rather big actor, with roles in The Hobbit and TV’s Sherlock, it seems surprising how little we truly know about his part in the film.

However, in a recent interview, Freeman finally broke the silence, and gave us some tantalising information, in regards to his character, Freeman stated that his character: “Works for the American government. 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 greys, because I think there’s just more fun to be had in not playing one obvious line.” 

While this information is still somewhat sketchy, it does seem to be in keeping tonally with The Winter Soldier, with complex characterisations, and people who are not always what they seem. We’ll have to wait to see how this plays out in the final film, but for the moment, colour me intrigued.

My name is James and I am a long time fan of Movies, TV and Comics. I am currently a student, wrapping up my education at Aberystwyth University. I have an undergraduate degree in film and television and I’m working on my Masters in scriptwriting. My personal favourite comic character is the Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), and I view the film adaptation as one of the most horrifying experiences I have had in a movie theatre. As far as film and television go, I am usually willing to give any genre a try, as long as the project is well executed.
