The latest batch of stills from Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” have includef official captions which have confirmed a long held fan theory – that Andy Serkis is playing Ulysses Klaw in the movie.
Last month came word that his character is an “amalgamation” of both Ulysses Klaw and his father Fritz Klaue from the comics, the latter connected to Baron Von Strucker (Thomas Kretschmann) who also appears in ‘Ultron’.
Of course Klaw is mostly tied to the “Black Panther” franchise, and recently that film’s star Chadwick Boseman talked to CBR recently about his preparation to take on the role of T’Challa when he first appears in next year’s “Captain America: Civil War”. From the sounds of it, it’s still very early going in regards to figuring out how to portray the character on screen:
“I think right now, it’s just going through the possibilities of what he can do. It’s a brainstorming phase, trying to figure out what it looks like — I’m going to be as vague as I can! — what it looks like and what it should feel like in certain moments. But just going through [the material], because there’s always a difference from one story to the next of who he is — trying to find a way to merge those things together. Because I think that’s always fun when these movies work: it’s when people see several things satisfied at one time. And I think that’s been the fun part so far.”
Which of the various different interpretations of the character in the comics will Boseman incorporate into the film? We’ll get a glimpse of that early next year.
