"Captain America: Civil War" is Only the Beginning of Martin Freeman's Marvel Plans

Surprising virtually no one, Martin Freeman has confirmed Marvel Studios has plans for him, and his character Everett Ross, beyond "Captain America: Civil War."

"Please, God. Yeah. Yes, that's the plan," the "Sherlock" star said Friday on "The Graham Norton Show." "It's a fairly small role at this stage ..."

Freeman, who appeared on the show with his "Civil War" co-star Paul Rudd (alas, they don't share any scenes in the film), was rumored to be playing Ross virtually from the moment he was cast in the film in May 2015. However, it wasn't until February that is role was finally confirmed.

In Marvel comics, Ross is typically depicted as a U.S. government expert on -- and liaison to -- Wakanda. In "Civil War," the character is part of the Joint Counter Terrorist Center. Considering is ties to Black Panther (played by Chadwick Boseman), a role in that character's 2018 solo film seems highly like that. Beyond that, though, remains anybody's guess.

"Captain America: Civil War" opens Friday nationwide.
