Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War has added another name to its growing cast

So, Marvel, we meet again. Another press announcement with so little detail I’m going to have to think outside
the box. Also, I know everyone is talking about Martin Freeman in such roles like Fargo and The Hobbit, but how about his role in Shaun of the Dead and Ali G: Da Movie?

Martin Freeman was a top notch British actor way before he was Watson. Freeman was involved in the crime fighting game way earlier on when he was in Hot Fuzz.


Ed. Note: Josh has decided to rap-out the following news snippet instead of writing like a normal person.. So, without further a-do here’s Josh’s Martin Freeman rap.

Guess who’s is fighting Ironman and Cap, but don’t worry about that.
Check that out after my lame little rap.
Who’s cap will our new little Hobbit chap go to?

Who could he play?
That talk has been left for another day.
Do you know what I say?
Who could he be?
Could he be the Ray?
No way he’s not one of the Marvel fray.

Maybe it’s dull, could he be the Red Skull?
Or with my flapping could he be the Captain.
Not the American way how about the Captain Britain way?

“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.”

So who will Freeman be playing? Let us know your suggestions below.
