‘Star Wars 7’ Andy Serkis Photo & Character Name Revealed!

‘Star Wars 7’ Andy Serkis Photo & Character Name Revealed!

Even after the release of two trailers, much of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens plot and characters still remain shrouded in mystery. Disney and LucasFilm have been revealing little tidbits of information over the past few months, and today we finally learn who Andy Serkis is playing, a character known as Supreme Leader Snoke. We don't know what this character looks like yet, but LucasFilm has released a new photo of Andy Serkis in his motion capture outfit.

When the first trailer was released back in late November, it was revealed shortly thereafter that it was Andy Serkis' voice providing the narration for the trailer, but we still have very little context about how what he was actually saying fits into the story. Last month, a leaked character list revealed that Andy Serkis' character name was Uber, but that report also noted that it was likely a code name. Sadly, we don't have any more confirmed information about Supreme Leader Snoke, but there was also a rumor floating around last year that Andy Serkis is actually playing two characters, one who leads, "a group of unbelievably athletic and acrobatic motion capture characters," and another role that is said to be pivotal, which intertwines with Daisy Ridley's Rey.

‘Black Panther’: Will Andy Serkis Return as Ulysses Klaw?

Since Ulysses Klaw will have such a small role in Avengers: Age of Ultron, it would make sense that this cameo will set the character up for a larger role in Black Panther. Of course, since Black Panther is still more than three years away from hitting the big screen, it isn't even known if a script is completed quite yet, or how Marvel will approach this long-awaited movie. Do you think Ulysses Klaw should show up in Black Panther? Let us know what you think below.

Black Panther comes to theaters July 6th, 2018.

Andy Serkis Confirmed as Ulysses Klaw in ‘Avengers 2’

Andy Serkis Confirmed as Ulysses Klaw in ‘Avengers 2’

Ever since the first trailer debuted for Marvel's sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron, many fans believed that Andy Serkis is playing Ulysses Klaw, even though his character's identity has never confirmed by the studio. Yesterday, a slew of official photos were released from the superhero adventure, one of which featured Andy Serkis. Stitch Kingdom has now received those same images with official captions from Disney, which indeed confirms that Andy Serkis is in fact playing Ulyssees Klaw.

A report from January revealed that this character is actually an "amalgamation" of both Ulysses Klaw and his father from the comic books, Fritz Klaue. Fritz has been connected to Baron Von Strucker, who is played by Thomas Kretschmann in the Phase Two sequel. While Fritz may have an appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron, an insider claims that many of his "attributes" will be given to Andy Serkis' Ulysses Klaw. Unfortunately, we don't know how Klaw fits into the story quite yet, but there is speculation that his presence could help set up Marvel's Black Panther movie, arriving in 2017.

‘Avengers 2’: Andy Serkis Character Details Revealed?

‘Avengers 2’: Andy Serkis Character Details Revealed?

When the teaser trailer debuted in October for Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron, fans got their first look at Andy Serkis' mystery character. After seeing that brief shot, many fans had a hunch about who the actor was really playing. Then the second trailer gave us an even better look at the actor in costume. Now Schmoes Know's sources confirm that the actor is playing Ulysses Klaw. Please note: This hasn't been officially confirmed by Marvel yet.

What remains to be seen is how Klaw will fit into the Avengers: Age of Ultron story, but, from the hints left in the last trailer, it seems this sequel will be setting up the stand alone Black Panther movie starring Chadwick Boseman, which is set for release in November 2017. Ulyssses Klaw was a villain in several of the Black Panther comics, and there is speculation that the Avengers may pay a visit to T'challa's homeland of Wakanda in the sequel. It has already been confirmed that Chadwick Boseman's Black Panther will appear in next year's Captain America: Civil War, but we'll have to wait and see if the character appears in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Is Andy Serkis Playing Two Characters in ‘Star Wars 7’?

While neither Disney nor Lucasfilm will confirm Andy Serkis as the narrator of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer, both Hitfix and Collider revealed it was the actor over the weekend. Now, Good Morning America has also backed up these reports, though they refused to give up their source. While Andy Serkis is quite clearly the voice we hear, we still know little to nothing about his character. Or characters, as Jedi News reports this morning. If we're to believe this latest rumor, Andy Serkis has dual roles in the anticipate sequel.

Jedi News is quick to point out that none of this has been confirmed by the studio. There is speculation that, while the voice in the trailer sounds rather ominous, Andy Serkis is actually playing a new Yoda-like character who has been in hiding. It is also being rumored that Andy Serkis's motion-capture company is pioneering a way for actors to interact with on-set-animatronics that is similar to mo-cap, which will revolutionize the entire VFX industry. Is any of this true? We'll have to wait and find out.
