The upcoming “Captain America: Civil War” film are starting to look more and more like the Avenger 2.5 according to Collider as they continue to add to their already star-studded cast list. Just a few days ago, we discovered that Spider-man will finally make his appearance with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now, we hear that Bilbo Baggins will be appearing in the forthcoming Captain America film.
Ok, well not Bilbo Baggins himself from the Hobbits trilogy, but the actor Martin Freeman will be making the appearance. Freeman has also played Dr. John Watson on Sherlock, Lester Nygaard on FX’s Fargo, and Tim Canterbury on the British version of The Office. There is no word on what role he will be playing just yet. Collider gives us the full tea on the all-star line-up:
…it’s becoming harder to believe it’s not actually The Avengers 2.5.
Marvel doesn’t specify what character Freeman is playing, but as of now the lineup for Civil War includes Chris Evans (Steve Rogers), Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton), Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), as well as Chadwick Boseman’s debut appearance as Black Panther, Daniel Bruhl as the villainous Baron von Zemo, and the new Spider-Man who has yet to be cast.
Captain America: Civil War is scheduled to hit theaters May 6, 2016….a whole year away.
