Marvel Studios may not have made any formal announcements about Black Panther sequel, but actor Martin Freeman has confirmed his involvement in the project. Freeman, who played CIA Agent Everett Ross in the Chadwick Boseman-fronted 2018 film, said he is not sure when the much-anticipated sequel will get into production.
