Several articles appeared with quotes from Martin regarding his character Everett K. Ross. More will probably be published as we are only 3 weeks away from the premiere of Black Panther. Let’s see what he says. Click on Read more to continue reading.
In this article from ComicBook Martin confirms he has a large role in the upcoming Black Panther movie:
“As far as I was concerned, that was the idea. I don’t think I’m getting killed for that,” Freeman shared with ComicBook.com about being teased in the MCU and finally getting to confirm his larger role in Black Panther. “Yeah, that was my understanding.”
He also discusses being able to talk about a job without saying too much, keeping secrets while promoting is not an easy job:
“While I’m talking now, I’m still not quite sure of what I can or I think I can, you know?” Freeman admitted. “It’s always nice to talk about a job, but at the same time pretty much every job every actor does now is like working for the real CIA. So, it comes with that package of, ‘What did I just say? Am I allowed to say that?’ So yeah, you’re always walking a tightrope between wanting to talk about this job you’re enjoying but also not messing it up and pissing the producers off.”
We’ve added 24 HQ pics from the filming of the Unaired BBC Sherlock pilot (the scene where John and Sherlock have a stakeout/dinner date at Angelo’s). Want to see Martin as John Watson wearing that leather jacket, a white undershirt and a pinstripe shirt with an open collar? If so click here to access this gorgeous album.
It was informed by The Slanted and Deadline that following Sundance Film Festival, Hulu and IFC Midnight (company in charge of the rights to Ghost Stories in the US) have made a deal that will grant Hulu exclusive subscription streaming rights to current and future non-documentary films released by IFC Midnight.
They will be released on that streaming site following the theatrical release. As you probably know, Ghost Stories is one of the movies that IFC Midnight has the rights to.
As it’s known Hulu is a subscription based streaming platform only available to people in the US. For this reason and since we know not every fan of Martin Freeman is based there we asked IFC Midnight as well as Andy Nyman and Jeremy to comment on this. IFC Midgnight informed us that: Ghost Stories will also be available as VOD, DVD, Blu-Ray following the theatrical release and only then in Hulu. LionsGate who holds the rights in the UK is yet to comment whether DVDs/Blu-Rays will be available but we imagine it will be since it’s a British movie after all. Availability of DVD/Blu-Rays outside these two countries was not confirmed, as well as it will depend on each country whether they will show it on the big screen. Fingers crossed for everyone outside the US/UK (which includes us).
A 3 minutes interview was published by the folks at ExtraTV. This was filmed at an unknown location where they were filming the casino scenes. It’s funny and Martin talks about his action scenes and how much he likes working with director Ryan Coogler. It’s a great interview so we really recommend you to check it out!
There’s another interview, in this case with Lupita Nyong’o where you can see another question made to Martin regarding his character. Check out that interview here. There are some little bts also from the filming of the casino scene and you can see Martin being helped by T’Challa and also meeting Klaue there. The question the interviewer asked him was “How does your character fit in this whole universe?”, this is Martin’s response.
It was announced that during this years’ Glasgow Film Festival to be held from 21 February to 4 March 2018, attendees will be able to watch Ghost Stories. The dates set for the film are: March 1st, 2nd and 3rd. It was informed on this website that there will be a Q&A with Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson following the screening and also will be presenting the film before it starts.
Collider did extensive profiles of all of the Black Panther characters this includes of course Martin’s Everett K. Ross:
- Though he was introduced in Captain America: Civil War, Martin Freeman‘s CIA agent Everett Ross gets to play on a bigger stage in Black Panther.
- Don’t expect Ross to be a bumbling bureaucrat; he’s a very capable agent who specializes in diplomacy between some of the most powerful entities in the world. That doesn’t mean he might not have a sense of humor to him, but Ross isn’t there for comic relief.
- Ross is also not afraid to, or incapable of holding his own in a scrap. Expect to see him right alongside the superheroes when the action ramps up.
- Ross finds himself in an interesting position in Wakanda on two fronts: He’s used to dealing with superheroes, so he’s more exasperated by the Wakandans’ distrustful nature than dumbfounded by their technology. He’s also caught between his loyalties to the C.I.A. and his respect for the isolated and protected civilization.
- When it comes to Ulysses Klaue, Ross aims to keep his friends close and his enemies closer. If he keeps tabs on Klaue, he has access to information from all over the world while also knowing just where things are about to heat up.
- Expect Ross and T’Challa to spend a fair amount of time sizing each other up to see just how much they can trust each other.
