Andy Serkis confirms he is playing Ulysses Klaw in Avengers: Age of Ultron

Andy Serkis just confirmed he’s playing Ulysses Klaue. Ever since his appearance in the first Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer fans have been guessing Andy Serkis’ character is Ulysses Klaw, a long-time Avengers and Black Panther villain.

Serkis stated “Well, I think I can absolutely confirm it’s Ulysses Klaw now because I think the news is out.” Serkis said, “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.’ It was [a really minimal role], but I just loved doing it. It’s a great character.” In addition to the quote Marvel also released an official character description which reads “Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) is a black-market arms dealer, smuggler and gangster operating out of South Africa. He is a former acquaintance of Tony Stark’s from his weapons-dealing days and a powerful new player in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”

The unusual spelling of Klaue is from Fantastic Four Unlimited #1 where his father is the Nazi war criminal, and friend of Baron Von Strucker, Colonel Fritz Klaue. His son later changes his name to Klaw.

This confirmation is just one more clue that Black Panther will make an unscheduled appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron, having already noticed Captain America’s broken Vibranium shield (which is only found in Wakanda), a woman who appears to be one of the Dora Milaje (Black Panther’s personal bodyguards) and numerous references to Africa.
