Avengers: Age of Ultron is just three months and a week away from hitting the theaters. Millions of fans have already watched the two trailers released on 22 October, 2014 and 12 January, 2015. We knew Andy Serkis would be playing some kind of a supporting role in the movie but not exactly what role. The veteran British actor appeared in the second trailer, almost everyone could predict who he might be playing but no one could confirm that.
Now, someone's claiming that they can confirm it! Not only that, they also claim that they know who one of the two undisclosed female superheroes in the second installment of Avengers is! It is the website "˜Schmoes Know' who has announced their knowledge on the topics quite boldly!
Andy Serkis Is Playing Ulysses Klaw!
Most of the fans had thought that Andy might be playing Ulysses Klaw and the website confirms that he is indeed playing the role of the Black Panther antagonist. The website claims that they had this confirmation from reliable sources at Marvel. However, when the actor's representatives were asked about the particular news, they had put forward a "˜no comments'!
The website also reveals that Andy's character will be "˜a sort of amalgamation of both Klaw and his father Fritz Klaue'. They claim that Klaw will have a history in the movie with Baron von Strucker and The Howling Commandos as Fritz has in the comic books. If this is true, Andy must be reprising his role in the Black Panther solo movie as the two are arch-rivals in the comic book.
Mantis To Appear In Age Of Ultron!
Previously, director Josh Whedon had declared that four big female superheroes will appear in Age of Ultron. We only know two of them, Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow and Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch. But the other two are still undisclosed. According to the website, one of those two is none other than the character that appeared in 1973 Marvel comic Avengers #112, Mantis!
The website's source explains the sense that the appearance of Mantis makes by pointing out four different factors. First of all, the female superhero has direct ties to Thanos and secondly, even better links to Vision, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. As the third reason, the source points out her having a personal vendetta against Klaw in the comic book. Her prominence as a member of The Avengers as well as the Guardians of the Galaxy is, according to the website's source, the most important reason behind her inclusion in the movie.
A "˜ComicBookMovie' report suggests in a recent report that the Korean actress Claudia Kim is the one playing the role of Mantis. In March 2014, Claudia had confirmed being a part of Age of Ultron but didn't reveal what role she would exactly play.
The Biggest Thing Marvel Have Ever Done!
Paul Bettany, the voice of JARVIS as well as Vision, claims in a recent voice interview with "˜Radio Times' that the Avengers sequel is "˜the biggest thing Marvel have ever done'! He mentioned that he was "˜gobsmacked' watching a clip of the movie at Comic-con! According to Bettany, the legendary actor Samuel Jackson , who usually seems to be unmoved by any exciting movie or scene, has also "˜knocked out' watching that just like others!
