As we mentioned in a recent post, Benedict Cumberbatch is currently filming the biopic The Current War. It’d be a shame to think his Sherlock co-star Martin Freeman was home twiddling his thumbs, just waiting for the phone to ring.
But, alas, that’s not the case! Freeman is reprising his Marvel role as Everett K. Ross for the forthcoming film Black Panther.
We first saw Freeman as Ross in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War. Ross is the Deputy Task Force Commander of the Joint Counter Terrorist Center. Part of his job description is to escort foreign diplomats upon arrival to the U.S., including T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), also known as Black Panther, who is the ruler of Wakanda.
Just to be clear, Everett is not a superhero; he is cape-less.
In case you missed it, here’s a look at Freeman as Ross in Captain America: Civil War:
It looks like he’s the one being escorted in the above.
Like Freeman says in the below clip, it’s not quite clear which side his character is on. He is a bit ambiguous:
As we mentioned above, Ross and Black Panther made their introductions in Captain America: Civil War. The two will reunite in the 2018 film, Black Panther, centering around T’Challa and his fight to save the kingdom of Wakanda. Chadwick Boseman returns as Black Panther, taking on the title role. You can also look for Sterling K. Brown (The People v. O.J. Simpson), Forest Whitaker (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) and Lupita Nyong’o (Queen of Katwe).
