Heading into “Captain America: Civil War,” we’re going to be seeing a lot of familiar faces.

However, not all the new actors joining are wearing superhero outfits. Martin Freeman‘s role has been subject to plenty of rumors, and today Empire gives us the official word of who he’s playing.

As reported last year, Freeman will be playing Everett Ross, who works for the Joint Counter Terrorist Center and is a Wakandan expert, which means that likely will appear in “Black Panther,” too. Meanwhile, the magazine also reveals (via Comic Book Movie) that Gwyneth Paltrow‘s Pepper Potts returns to the franchise in ‘Civil War,’ with director Joe Russo promising some serious fallout from what happens in the blockbuster. 

“The consequences of ‘Civil War’ will have an even more significant impact [than ‘The Winter Soldier’]. In Civil War, we’re going to change the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Psychology, and it’s an extreme shift,” he said, with Anthony Russo adding there’s a “very dramatic ending that will be controversial for a lot of people.” 
Ponder that as you look over these latest images from the movie courtesy of Empire. “Captain America: Civil War” opens on May 6th.
