It looks as though another actor has joined the ever-growing cast of Captain America: Civil War. This news comes courtesy of The Jakarta Post, who had a chance to speak to Ray Sahetapy after a tweet from actor Dennis Adishwara hinted at his casting.

From The Jakarta Post:
Seasoned actor Ray Sahetapy has confirmed he has landed a role in the much-anticipated superhero film Captain America: Civil War. He has arrived in Atlanta, the US, in preparation for two days shooting starting on Monday.
“Yes, it is true. I am involved [in the movie],” Ray said when contacted by on Saturday.
However, he kept his mouth shut about his role in the movie, which is directed by Joe Russo and Anthony Russo.
Ray’s involvement in the franchise grabbed national attention on Friday after filmmaker and actor Dennis Adishwara, on his Twitter account, posted a picture of Ray trying on a costume for the movie.
I should note that, as of right now, no trades have commented on Sahetapy’s casting in Civil War, but with the confirmation coming from the actor himself, I feel safe saying this isn’t a rumor.
Captain America: Civil War will begin shooting this week and will hit movie theaters next May. As of right now, the confirmed cast members are: Chris Evans (Captain America), Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Frank Grillo (Crossbones), and Daniel Brühl (Baron Zemo). Given that Marvel has yet to release an official cast list as of yet – something I’d expect to change after the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron -I wouldn’t be surprised to see even more characters join the cast.
Captain America: Civil War is set to be released on May 6, 2016.
