Brand new images and news involving Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War. Empire has also confirmed that Martin Freeman will be playing Everett Ross (no relation to William Hurt’s General Ross), a member of the Joint Counter Terrorist Centre in the film. Ross also served as an ambassador to Wakanda in the source material.
“He works for the American government,” Freeman previously said. “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 Russo Brothers are returning to direct what looks to be a fabulous film starring Chris Evans as Captain America, Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Anthony Mackie as Falcon, Sebastian Stan as The Winter Soldier, Paul Bettany as The Vision, and Paul Rudd as Ant-man. We ALSO finally get Chadwick Boseman as The Black Panther. Holy crap are we excited.
Captain America: Civil War hits theaters May 6th, 2016.
