Ever since the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer dropped, everyone has been brainstorming which Marvel character Andy Serkis is playing in the movie. The guys over at Schmoes Knows confirm that the actor is indeed playing a villain known as ‘Klaw.’ In the comics, Ulysses Klaw is a nemesis of Black Panther who equipped himself with a cybernetic arm that shoot sound waves. Inside sources are saying that “this version of Klaw will be a sort of amalgamation of both Klaw and his father in the comics, Fritz Klaue,” who has some history with the Howling Commandos and Baron von Strucker in the comics and from what we are hearing in the film tool.
It is rumored that Ultron will upgrade his robotic body by searching for Vibranium only found in Wakanda where the Black Panther reigns as king. If true this further confirms that Black Panther will appear in the Avengers: Age of Ultron where Captain America recruits a new team of Avengers that consists of The Vision, Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, Black Widow, War Machine, and The Falcon.
We will have to wait and see when Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in theaters May 1st, 2015.
