Freeman Reveals Details Of His Civil War Role

As many now know, Martin Freeman is set to appearing in Captain America: Civil War but other than the announcement of his casting, Marvel have been very quiet on the specific details around the character he will be playing – though many Sherlock fans will no doubt be hoping for a connection to Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange.

While it’s still unclear exactly who Freeman will be playing, the actor has been kind enough to share a few interesting tidbits of info which certainly provide us with a clearer picture as to how he will fit into the MCU. While speaking with Bad Taste he revealed a little insider information:

“He works for the American government,” says Freeman. “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.”

The current speculation is that Freeman will be playing Henry Peter Gyrich, an established character from the comics who is the Avengers’ U.S. government liaison, whether this is correct or not has not been officially confirmed but given the detail the Sherlock actor has already revealed, it’s unlikely we’ll have long to wait to find out.

Captain American: Civil War opens in the UK on 29 April 2016 and the US on 6 May 2016.
