After much speculation, Martin Freeman‘s role in Marvel Studios upcoming American superhero film, Captain America: Civil War has been revealed.
Empire confirmed that Freeman will be playing Everett Ross, a member of the Joint Counter Terrorist Centre in the movie.
We also get a first look at his character alongside Agent 13 (Sharon Carter) played by Emily VanCamp.

“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.”
The film is intended to be the sequel to 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger and 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and the thirteenth installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, with a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely.
Captain America: Civil War is scheduled to be released on May 6, 2016, in 3D and IMAX 3D.
