Actor Martin Freeman has spoken about returning to the role of CIA agent Everett K. Ross for the upcoming Marvel sequel Black Panther 2, and about making the movie without star Chadwick Boseman, who tragically died last year.
Speaking to Collider, Freeman revealed that the script for Black Panther 2 had been completed prior to Boseman’s death from cancer last August. “Just before Chadwick died, if my memory serves correctly, the script had gone in,” he said. “They had the script and they were working on the script, and then Chadwick died, and [I] sort of immediately thought, ‘Oh, okay, I could see a world where there’s no Black Panther then, because how can you do a Black Panther without Black Panther?'”
Freeman went on to state that while he knew he was still in the movie, he was unsure about what direction it will now take without Boseman playing T’Challa. “I’m going to be speaking to [director] Ryan Coogler soon about what shape that’s going to look like,” he said . “I have no idea about the script [so] I don’t know what’s going to happen.
