Actor Martin Freeman finally shares about his role in Captain America: Civil War. And the internet probably have guessed it already.
During the Giffoni International Film Festival, the most prestigious Children’s film festival that sets at the south of Italy, the ‘Hobbit’ star opens up about his “mystery” role in Civil War. Check out the video below:
“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.”
“He 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 grays, because I think there’s just more fun to be had in not playing one obvious line.”
Latino-Review and others have now guessed that Freeman is none other than Everett Ross, American Regent of Wakanda (of the Black Panther comics) who worked as an adviser alongside government officials and the National Security Agency in the comics.Ross perfectly fits the description that Freeman gave.
