Fans can expect to see Martin Freeman reprising his role as Everett Ross in Marvel Studios’ upcoming sequel, Black Panther 2.
In an interview with Collider, Martin Freeman was asked about his potential involvement in Black Panther 2, to which he made the following statement:
“As far as I know, I will be [returning]. As far as I know, I will be in another Black Panther. That’s my understanding. As to when that will happen, I don’t know.”
Martin Freeman made his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Everett Ross in Captain America: Civil War. Everett Ross is a member of the CIA and was part of the U.S. Airforce prior to his work as a CIA agent. Although Martin Freeman’s role in Captain America: Civil War was minor, his role is expanded in Black Panther when Everett Ross runs into King T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) in Busan, South Korea. Everett Ross then unwittingly joins T’Challa and his allies in the battle against Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan).
It is unknown if Everett Ross was a victim of “The Blip” or if he was one of the survivors that waited for five years for half of all existence in the universe to return. Given that Martin Freeman’s Everett Ross was an important ally to T’Challa, it is not surprising to see that he will make his return in Black Panther 2.
Although it wasn’t announced with the Phase 4 slate during Marvel Studios’ Comic-Con panel, Kevin Feige confirmed that Black Panther 2 is on the way, but is not ready to make an official announcement regarding a release date. Ryan Coogler is set to return to write and direct the sequel. Along with Martin Freeman, Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira and Letitia Wright among others are expected to return.

Martin Freeman’s Everett Ross was last seen in Black Panther. Here is the synopsis for the movie:
Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” follows T’Challa 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.
