Bilbo Baggins Joins ‘Captain America: Civil War’!

Sherlock: Martin Freeman as Watson

That’s a fun title, right? What if the actual Bilbo Baggins, and not the actor who portrays him, was joining a super hero movie? C’mon, we’d all go see that. But no…not Bilbo, rather Martin Freeman will be joining the cast of the upcoming third installment of the Captain America movies, Captain America: Civil War!

It’s not yet known which role Freeman will play, but he’s shown a penchant for playing a variety of characters, from a prominent role in BBC’s ‘The Office’ to ‘Dr. John Watson’ in BBC’s ‘Sherlock’ (if you haven’t seen this yet, it alone is worth the Netflix subscription). A lot of speculation is swirling around the potential plotline for the film, and the continued casting of Chris Evans as ‘Captain America,’ but adding Freeman to the mix is a great addition. Civil War will highlight three Marvel superheroes: Iron ManBlack Widow and, of course, Captain America.

Check back for more as we hear it! Captain America: Civil War is slated for release on IMAX ONE YEAR FROM TODAY, May 6, 2016!
