In an interview with Bad Taste.it, Freeman shared some new details about his mysterious role in ‘Captain America: Civil War’:
“He works for the American government. He works in conjunction with the superheroes, and certain agencies that help to tame the superheroes’ power, I suppose. So you’re not quite sure which side he’s on. It looks a little bit like he’s playing one game when actually he’s playing another. It’s the kind of character I like because it’s ambiguous and because you don’t know whether he’s good or bad. I like that area that isn’t black or white, I like the grays, because I think there’s just more fun to be had in not playing one obvious line.”
According to Latino Review, Freeman will play some sort of interrogator and will also return in the ‘Black Panther.’ The rumors are that Freeman will play Everett Ross, a US Government agent assigned to Wakanda who grows to become sort of a Wakandan expert.
Fans also speculate that Martin could be playing a brand new character created for the movie, or a version of Henry Peter Gyrich (a character owned by Fox), government liaison to the Avengers by the NSA later by the National Security Council.

“Captain America: Civil War” picks up where “Avengers: Age of Ultron” left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
