To nobodies surprise over here, it appears that Martin Freeman‘s mysterious role will probably be Everett K Ross according to Da7e over at Latino-Review. Yesterday when Marvel announced Freeman’s inclusion in Captain America: Civil War, Everett Ross was the first name to come to my mind. With only a small nod to Wakanda in Avengers: Age of Ultron, there will definitely need to be some exposition in that regard and who better do give us that then Freeman? Da7e is also reporting what Devin Faraci was saying yesterday (which only helped support the Ross theory) in that Freeman is due to appear in Black Panther as well. Seems like a done deal to me.
For those unfamiliar, Everett Ross is a comic book character from the pages of Black Panther and is often the Governments goto guy for anything Wakanda. It’s also important to note that, in the comics, he has no relation to General Thunderbolt Ross OR Betty Ross.
This all makes total sense to introduce this character and I’m of the opinion that Freeman is pretty great in anything, so this seems like a win for fans. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
