Andy Serkis Talks AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON And BLACK PANTHER


Although we've known since the very first Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer that Andy Serkis will be playing the villain Ulysses Klaw, it was not confirmed until early last month. So, during last night's Empire Awards where Serkis won the Best Actor honor, the Apes star was finally able to discuss his minor role in the highly-anticipated Marvel sequel. "Well, I think I can absolutely confirm it's Ulysses Klaw now because I think the news is out," Serkis told Empire Magazine last night. "I sort of noticed that people [on the red carpets] sort of knew that I was Ulysses Klaw, so I thought 'It must be out then.'" He then clarified that he has a "tiny" part in Age of Ultron and it did not require weeks of filming. "It was really minimal, but I just loved doing it; it's a great character," he said.

Considering Ulysses Klaw is a primary adversary of the Black Panther, who Chadwick Boseman will be portraying in Captain America: Civil War (May 6, 2016) and a standalone movie (July 6, 2018), Andy Serkis was asked if he will be reprising the Avengers: Age of Ultron character in the future. "That, I know nothing about," he replied. "I truly don't know anything about that. I know that they've just announced the Black Panther movie, but I don't know anything about it." About portraying the character as himself without performing motion-capture, Serkis joked that it was quite a shock. "I hadn't done it in a while," he said. "It was almost like 'Where are my dots, I feel very naked.' It's absolutely all me. I had a lovely time doing it, working with director Joss Whedon who is just great great fun. I think it's going to be an extraordinary film."



Marvel Studios presents Avengers: Age of Ultron, the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to the Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure. Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision. Written and directed by Joss Whedon and produced by Kevin Feige, Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” published in 1963. Get set for an action-packed thrill ride when The Avengers return in Avengers: Age of Ultron May 1, 2015.
