‘Black Panther’ Actor Martin Freeman Confirms Additional Marvel Appearances

In a recent interview, Martin Freeman confirmed that he would be making additional appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Black Panther.

While discussing his character with Den of Geek, Freeman revealed that the people at Marvel Studios had more in store for him:

“They introduced me in Civil War and said there would be a couple of other films, one of which was Black Panther.”

Sadly he did not reveal the films that he would be a part of.

Martin Freeman’s character Everett Ross was first introduced in Captain America: Civil War as the head of  the Joint Counter Terrorism Center. He acted as something of a secondary antagonist for Steve Rodgers in the film. Freeman then returned to the role in Black Panther as a supporting character and ally of the film’s title hero. The actor is best known for his role as Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit Trilogy as well as Watson in the BBC series Sherlock.

Freeman’s latest blockbuster features a cast that includes Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa (Black Panther), Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Daniel Kaluuya as W’Kabi, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Forest Whitaker as Zuri, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Florence Kasumba as Ayo, John Kani as T’Chaka, Sterling K. Brown as N’Jobu, Michael B. Jordan as Erik Kilmonger, Hobbit costar Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue, and Winston Duke as M’Baku (Man-Ape). In addition, Atandwa Kani has been cast in an unspecified role. Here’s the film’s official synopsis:

Marvel Studios’ Black Panther follows T’Challa (Boseman) who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.”

Black Panther is currently in theaters.
