New interview for The Times

As part of the Black Panther press tour, in this new interview Martin talks about his concerns over the privacy of his kids:

Last night, for instance, my kids came to the Black Panther premiere,” he says. “And it was a big deal for me and Amanda, to work out how we get them in and experience some of the excitement of it without having to pose for pictures with them. Look, there are worse things in the world. But it’s a pain in the arse and I don’t like it.

His new family dinamics now that he’s some sort of a single parent:

it’s lovely to be part of a family, of course it is. It’s lovely. But then the parents . . .” He trails off, regroups and adds: “We have a fine old time, me and my kids, and I know they do with Amanda. And fortunately, me and Amanda get on like a house on fire. We’re very close.

His future projects:

There’s a comedy series that he’s developing for TV called “Breeders” (“I can’t say any more than that!”), a documentary on 2 Tone Records and possibly another Marvel movie. Which can only mean one thing. “I’m successful,” he says, grinning, tongue only slightly in cheek. “I’m not saying that I deserve it. Or that I am any good at it. But you would have to acknowledge that I am successful.”

And his choices for a perfect weekend:

Pub or red carpet?
Pub. And I don’t even like the pub

Suit or tracksuit?

Street food or Michelin-starred meal?
Neither, but street food is more likely

Team sports or go for a run?
Again, neither. But team sports

Wine or water?
I’m Catholic. I can do both at the same time.

How many unread emails in your inbox?

I couldn’t get through the weekend without . . .
A bath

Martin on Marvel and secrecy

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 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.”
