So the internet lit up last night with the news that Hobbit superstar Martin Freeman has been cast in Marvel’s upcoming Captain America: Civil War movie, due in 2016.
Lot’s of people including myself are hoping that in the film he will be playing the role of Captain Britain, but his part has not been revealed as of yet.
Is there any chance of this casting, well I’m not sure. Freeman is a versatile actor who has undertaken a variety of roles all to great critical acclaim, but Captain Britain? Too me his image doesn’t fit my idea of an onscreen Cap, but my thoughts are obviously comparing him to his comic book image while a film version could differ vastly to the printed page’s Cap.
Personally I think Freeman would make a great Inspector Dai Thomas, but I can’t see him turning up in Civil War somehow!
Who do you think Freeman will play in Civil War? Could it be Captain Britain? let me know in the comments below.
