Martin Freeman calls Harrison Ford a 'brilliant' replacement for William Hurt

Martin Freeman has branded Harrison Ford a "brilliant" replacement for William Hurt in the Marvel universe.

'Star Wars' legend Ford has reportedly been signed up to take over Hurt's character of General Thaddeus E. Ross in the superhero movies following the actor's death in March with roles in 'Captain America: New World Order' and 'Thunderbolts' - and the rumour has gone down well with fellow Marvel star Freeman.
