Following the addition of Cobie Smulders’ Maria Hill in Secret Invasion, it looks like another Marvel Cinematic Universe alum had also joined the upcoming Disney+ series. In a recent Q&A session with Josh Horowitz, lead star Samuel L. Jackson has confirmed that Emmy winner Martin Freeman is officially reprising his role as CIA agent Everett K. Ross in Marvel Studios’ next all-star series.

This would mark the fourth MCU project and first series that Freeman has appeared as Ross, with the first one being 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, followed by 2018’s Black Panther. He is also currently in production for Ryan Coogler’s long-awaited Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which will hit the theaters later this year on November 11.
