Martin Freeman Joins “Civil War”

“The Hobbit” and “Sherlock” star Martin Freeman has joined the cast of “Captain America: Civil War” for Marvel Studios.

Details of Freeman’s role are being kept under wraps so it’s unknown if this is a one-off part or an ongoing role that will appear in other entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In a statement, Marvel’s Kevin Feige says: “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. We couldn’t be more honored or excited to have such a talented actor join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”

Filming on “Captain America: Civil War” is currently underway ahead of a May 6th 2016 release.
