Marvel just announced Martin Freeman has joined the cast of the third Captain America film, Captain America: Civil War. In announcing Freeman’s addition to the cast, Marvel didn’t say who he would be playing just that they’d added another name to the growing cast.
“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 Captain America: Civil War producer Kevin Feige. “We couldn’t be more honored or excited to have such a talented actor join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
Freeman’s recent credits include Sherlock, Fargo, and starring in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy. He’s currently shooting Fun House along with Tina Fey and his Fargo co-star Billy Bob Thornton.
Captain America: Civil War stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr, Jeremy Renner, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, and Chadwick Boseman. Marvel and Disney will be releasing Civil War in theaters on May 6, 2016.
