May 5, 2015

It seems another member from Middle-Earth is joining the ever growing Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel announced today that The Hobbit and Sherlock star Martin Freeman has joined Captain America: Civil War in an unknown role. He has now joined the Marvel universe alongside Benedict Cumberbatch who will play the lead in Doctor Strange and Andy Serkis who plays Ulysses Klaw in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

“From his roles as Bilbo Baggins and Doctor Watson to Tim in The Office, Martin’s range from the dramatic to the comedic has consistently impressed us,” said Marvel Studios’ president, Kevin Feige. “We couldn’t be more honored or excited to have such a talented actor join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”

It’s obvious that Freeman is going to play the all powerful Captain Britain in the Marvel universe. Probably not…
