Martin Freeman Gets "Captain America: Civil War" Gig

Martin Freeman has joined the cast of "Captain America: Civil War" as indicated by a press release. Details about the role are being kept under wraps

The 3rd Cap film will be an adaptation of the Captain America: Civil War storyline that sees Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) at odds with Captain America (Chris Evans) over the Superhero Registration Act - a law that forces anyone with superhuman abilities to reveal their identities to the U.S. government and agree to act as a police force for the authorities. Stark supports the program, Rogers does not because it threatens civil liberties. As a result Rogers and various others go on the run to avoid arrest. The life of Cap's girlfriend, Agent 13  (Revenge star Emily VanCamp), is torn apart as her superiors use her divided loyalties against her. Elsewhere, a new villain emerges; the Red Skull begins to make himself known; and The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) again comes face-to-face with Cap....

Badass Digest says that despite the presence of RDJ's in the film Stan's Winter Soldier is still a central figure in the action.

Chadwick Boseman will also be playing Black Panther in the film before getting that solo flick all to himself. Anthony Mackie is poised to reprise the role Harlem crime fighter Falcon.Frank Grillo is set to reprise his role as S.H.I.E.L.D; operative Brock Rumlow, who becomes the villain Crossbones. Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury and Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow are also due to return.

The casting of Daniel Brühl in a villain role has led to speculation that he has taken over the role of Red Skull.There was a leak of a casting call sheet for "Cap Civil War" at that suggested that Bruhl will instead play iconic Marvel villain Baron Zemo in the film.
