Fans have already been expecting actor Martin Freeman to reprise his role as CIA agent Everett Ross for the upcoming film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. As it turns out, however, fans will be getting another appearance from the character as well in the upcoming Disney Plus series Secret Invasion. Indeed, Secret Invasion star Samuel L. Jackson accidentally leaked that Martin Freeman will return for his role in the upcoming series.
The news was revealed while Samuel L. Jack participated in an event which was titled Samuel L. Jackson In Conversation With Josh Horowitz. As it turns out, Josh Horowitz was merely listing the confirmed cast members when Samuel L. Jackson mentioned Martin Freeman. It’s worth noting that the actor wasn’t referenced prior to this, so Samuel L. Jackson must’ve been unaware of that before he spilled the beans.
As you can see below:
It’s clear that Secret Invasion will be a massive series and a massive chapter in the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe. As such, fans can likely expect all kinds of surprise cameos and characters throughout its runtime. But with the way these leaks have been coming left and right, it’ll be interesting to see which ones manage to remain secret until the release. Furthermore, with Martin Freeman involved in both this series and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, it seems likely that Secret Invasion will lead into the upcoming Black Panther sequel. As such, this is a very neat development, and one that fans can thank Samuel L. Jackson for accidentally revealing.
Fans can stay tuned to ScreenGeek for more updates on these projects as we have them. At this rate, there will probably be more updates, or at the very least, more leaks from the production of Secret Invasion.
It’s been expected that the Disney Plus series Secret Invasion will most likely be hitting the streaming service sometime in 2023.
