We were introduced to Everett K. Ross in “Captain America: Civil War,” but it was in “Black Panther” that we really got to know him.
We learn that he served in the US Air Force and that he’s actually a pretty cool guy. Martin Freeman spoke to Den of Geek about playing the character and confirmed that he’s signed on to appear in a few MCU films.
“They introduced me in Civil War and said there would be a couple of other films, one of which was Black Panther. So that was always on the cards.”
Freeman is perfectly setup to become “the glue” of the MCU moving forward much like Agent Coulson in Marvel’s Phase 1. An appearance in “Captain Marvel” could certainly work considering Ross’ background in the US Air Force. Given his good relations with Wakanda, don’t be surprised if he helps out in the battle against Thanos in “Avengers: Infinity War” or returns in “Black Panther” sequels.
Where do you think Freeman will pop up next? Let us know in the comments!
