Martin Freeman Teases His Role in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

British actor Martin Freeman Teases His Role in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

The Hobbit‘s Martin Freeman teases his role in Captain America: Civil War in this video, which was taken during his time at the Giffoni Film Festival.  In it, he indicates that his role is quite ambiguous:

“Well, we can say, he works for the American government,” Freeman told BadTaste.It. “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, I like that.”

You can watch the interview here, where he also mentions that his character holds an East Coast American accent:

From what was said, some comics fans can get an idea of who his character may be.  But we won’t speculate just yet.  That’s your part.  Who do you think Freeman is going to be playing in Captain America: Civil War?
