Martin Freeman's character, someone with negative shades, could be what connects "Avengers: Age of Ultron" to "Captain America: Civil War", indicates a new report.

According to a new Latino Review report, the hints of this was evident in "Avengers: Age of Ultron," where Andy Serkis' Klaw threatens to send a missile where the sun doesn't shine.

In the phone call Klaw makes, he can be heard saying, "Now, Minister, where were we?", and according to the media outlet the minister referred here could be Edward Chase, Prime Minister of England in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The website claims that the character of Chase could be essayed by Freeman, and he could be a negative character pressured to act against the Avengers after British soldiers are injured in Civil War.

"The Age of Ultron phone discussion, or the fact that Chase knows of Klaw will come up later in the film in a conversation between Chase and Baron Zemo, the not-Crossbones, not-Tony Stark villain of Civil War. This new information seems to put Martin Freeman squarely in the villain category for the third Captain America," the media outlet noted.

However, at this point all these are rumours.

"Captain America: Civil War" is set for a 6 May 2016 release in the United States. The movie will pick up from where "Avenger: Age of Ultron" left off, and the team will continue its efforts to safeguard humanity.

However, political pressure to install a governing body to determine when to enlist the Avengers' help will increase after an international incident involving the heroes result in collateral damage. The movie will also see a clash between Captain America and Iron Man.

In other "Captain America: Civil War" news, Samuel L Jackson recently revealed that Fury will not appear in the movie.

"It's really great to be the connective tissue between so many different characters in so many different films, that brings those guys together. But I'm not in Captain America 3. I can't figure that out, but I'm not. I guess I'm still out there, trying to figure out what happened to S.H.I.E.L.D. and who these other people are," the actor told Collider.
