RUMOR: Martin Freeman's CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR Role Revealed?

Martin Freeman's role in Captain America: Civil War has been one of the bigger early mysteries surrounding Cap 3. However, thanks to a new report, we may finally have some idea on who his character is and how he plays a major role in the Marvel epic. Come check it out!

Ever since Martin Freeman (The Hobbit) was cast in Captain America: Civil War, a number of rumors have circulated about what his mysterious role may be, with Everett Ross, an American regent of Wakanda, being one of the more popular fan choices.

Well, it's time to throw another possible option into the ring as Latino-Review is reporting that Freeman might actually be playing a character by the name of Edward Chase, the yet-to-be introduced Prime Minister of England in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He is expected to make his debut following the massive destruction caused by Captain America's brutal battle with Crossbones, a fight which is expected to leave heavy casualties, including several British soldiers. Freeman's character will be one of the figureheads on the pro-registration side in the movie and will be upping the pressure on Cap's New Avengers in order to keep them in check.

Latino-Review also adds that the Prime Minister may have had a brief mention in Marvel's Avengers: Age Of Ultron. During the scene right before Ultron and the twins pay Andy Serkis' Ulysses Klaw a visit, Klaw is seen on the phone with someone. This someone, whom Klaw does call the "Minister," is hypothetically Freeman's character Edward Chase. Why is he calling Klaw? Well, why else would you call Klaw? To illegally aquire vibranium and subsequently use it to make weapons that the U.K. can use to combat the rising number of superheroes in the world. 

Their phone discussion, or the fact that Chase is familiar with Klaw, will come into play during a conversation between Chase and Daniel Brühl's Baron Zemo, who is unsurprisingly the true villain of the picture. And in case it wasn't obvious, yes, Freeman's character is more villain than good samaratin. LR also speculates that with Chase and the Black Panther making appearances, Serkis could potentially make a cameo in the Marvel epic as well.

For now, it would probably be wise to take this news with a grain of salt, as at this point, it's nothing but an unconfirmed rumor, but if proven true, what do guys think? Proper role for Freeman? Excited to potentially see Freeman as a villain? Sound off with your thoughts below!

On a bit of a side note, it looks like Paul Bettany (The Tourist) has definitely arrived on the set of Civil War. Check out the "first photo" of the Vision on set in Bettany's tweet below:

Following the events of the Age of Ultron, the collective governments of the world pass an act designed to regulate all superhuman activity. This polarizes opinion amongst the Avengers cause two factions that side with Iron Man (pro registration) or side with Captain America (anti registration) which causes an epic conflict between former allies.
