The Hobbit star Martin Freeman has been named to be a part of Captain America: Civil War in an unknown role.

Now the mystery role may be revealed.

Possible spoilers follow.

Latino Review is stating Martin Freeman is playing Edward Chase, the Prime Minister of England who is in favor of super human registration.

It's suggested that Andy Serkis was on the phone with Chase during The Avengers 2 when Klaw mentioned: "Now, Minister, where were we?"

According to the rumor, a joint international mission goes south at the start of Captain America: Civil War that involves British soldiers, with Chase arguing for a better worldwide plan to keep the Avengers in check.

It's also said Chase may be attempting to collect Vibranium (what the phone call was about) to use against super humans.

It's further suggested that Chase's motives make it appear as if the character is a villain in the movie as he is set against the Avengers (or at least Cap's side).

"Captain America: Civil War" has  a May 6, 2016 release date directed by Anthony and Joe Russo starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Emily VanCamp, William Hurt, Martin Freeman and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther.


Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
