With just 37 days left until Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18, director J.J. Abrams has still managed to keep most of the film's secrets intact. Granted, there have been an onslaught of rumors that have surfaced between now and when Disney purchased LucasFilm for over $4 billion back in October 2012. One of the many secretive characters who has yet to be revealed is Andy Serkis' Supreme Leader Snoke, who we haven't seen in any of the trailers thus far, even though the actor did provide narration for the first teaser trailer released last November. Today, Indie Revolver has revealed an early piece of concept art that gives us our first look at Snoke, whose name may offer a hint about his appearance.
The image reveals that Snoke appears to be some sort of an unknown creature that resembles a standing snake, who is seen clad in a green and yellow robe. The site points out that this is likely one of the earlier designs for the character, and that there are "wildly different designs" that were commissioned for Snoke, so it isn't certain if this is the version fans will see when Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18. Even if the final version of Snoke does end up drastically different than this artwork, it certainly is intriguing.Read More
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.Read More
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.

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.Read More
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.Read More
