Ever since the cast of [Captain America: Civil War](tag:994409) was announced, fans have been extremely excited and curious about the handling of all the superheroes that are to feature in the film. But the cause of a lot of theories and speculation was the mysterious, hitherto unrevealed character that Martin Freeman was playing.
In its latest issue, Empire magazine has revealed who he is:
In the new image, Everett (Freeman) is standing alongside Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp), who are both accompanied by German soldiers; and, according to co-director Joe Russo, the German will bring the character full circle.
Comic Book Background
Everett Ross worked for the U.S. State Department, escorting foreign diplomats on American soil, one of whom was T'Challa, a.k.a Black Panther. His role with the Wakanda king is almost that of a sidekick and, as a consequence, he's had some pretty crazy adventures, even keeping Mephisto's heart in a pickle jar...
Ross's now-confirmed presence in Civil War is quite logical, considering Black Panther's involvement in the conflict. But one question remains: Will his role be the same as in the comic books?
