Freeman is a superstar who’s star power is burning white hot at the moment as fans the world over fell in love with his portrayal as Bilbo Baggins in ‘The Hobbit‘ trilogy, and most prominently known from his turn as Doctor John Watson to Benedict Cumberbatch’s ‘Sherlock‘ in the BBC serial of the same name that won him an Emmy Award and BAFTA Award for the role.
“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.”
