Does Andy Serkis Really Have A Role In Marvel's AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON?

The wording of the interview in which Andy Serkis "revealed" he had an Avengers: Age of Ultron role made it seem he was only a consultant on Mark Ruffalo's Hulk, but sources now confirm...

Back in April, we spotted a Twitter response from Mark Ruffalo that revealed he was working with motion-capture performance master Andy Serkis to "perfect" the Incredible Hulk in his next outing, Avengers: Age of Ultron. Last week, we finally heard from the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes actor about his involvement, and during that interview, Serkis said that his London-based digital studio, The Imaginarium, is serving as the performance capture consultant on the 2015 Marvel sequel.

"And I'm playing a role... I've been working closely with Mark Ruffalo," he added, insinuating that his role was just consultanting the Hulk actor. However, given the complicated wording of the interview, HitFix's Drew McWeeny has reached to his sources for confirmation: "...They clarified that he is only playing one character in the film, and that the nature of that role is still meant to be a secret." McWeeny's sources also confirmed that Andy Serkis' role is not one that has already been announced, adding "James Spader handled his own performance capture duties as Ultron." So, what character do you think would require Gollum of Lord of the Rings to work closely with Mark Ruffalo in Avengers: Age of Ultron? Perhaps, he'll appear as himself. What do you think?




Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Cobie Smulders Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, with Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, and James Spader. The film is set for release on May 1, 2015.

who could he be playing? all the characters we know are in the film he could be playing have already been cast (vision,ultron). maybe he could be someone to appear in the after credit's scene? what if he was one of the black order bowing before thanos now that would be cool.
StarYeezus - 7/2/2014, 7:46 AM
Maybe he's the new Abomination.
blackandyellow - 7/2/2014, 7:46 AM
Black Panther.

This girl will show up as Ms. Marvel, too.

TheAbaryMan369 - 7/2/2014, 7:46 AM
What if he is replacing the actor that played The Other? Or maybe he is some other kind of alien associated with Thanos.
kinghulk - 7/2/2014, 7:50 AM
theabary-like i said he could play a member of the black order like Corvus, black dwarf or ebany maw. personally i think he would make a good corvus.
JoJo1982 - 7/2/2014, 7:51 AM
I'm thinking Abomination too

That's is pretty interesting if true

I can't seem them having Andy do Vision, too human like in movements
HavocPrime - 7/2/2014, 7:52 AM
Cool, Serkis is an awesome actor and is the pioneer of Mo Cap work.
Doopie - 7/2/2014, 7:56 AM
He's playing Stan Lee
ATrueHero1987 - 7/2/2014, 8:02 AM

Like someone said, he character could be part of Thanos's army.

How awesome would it be if he was Korvac. Set up to the GOTG sequel.

LOL!

MrNiklander - 7/2/2014, 8:18 AM
So instead of having him play a real character he is stuck again doing a mo-cap role?!Seriously!?Andy Serkis is an amazing actor and it pisses me beyond belief that he is always casted as mo-cap dude.Dont get me wrong he is awesome Caesar Captain Haddok and Gollum but come on he needs more live action roles
MercwithMouth - 7/2/2014, 8:21 AM
Awesome news if true. Would love to see some Serkis in AoU. Likely be something in the mid-credits scene, as a set up for Ant-Man or Avengers 3.
ATrueHero1987 - 7/2/2014, 8:23 AM
Doopie - 7/2/2014, 8:25 AM
I'd be happy if I were Serkis - all these mo-cap roles and everyone looks to him. Huge demand and he's the only supply

@0mega

You're buying into the Roger Wardell - Mandarin in AOU rumor? Or some other source?

I'd like to see the real Mandarin at some point, but AOU seems highly improbable.

b&y, you were a right-fielder, correct?

Turk - 7/2/2014, 8:36 AM
A huge upgrade from those shit Warner Hobbit movies and shit Fox ape movies. God bless the MCU!!
sKeemAn - 7/2/2014, 8:37 AM
I saw this on yahoo like 4 days ago. They pretty much confirmed that he had a role, just unsure who he's playing.
Gusto - 7/2/2014, 8:37 AM
Brainy, why don't you make some damn articles???
Gusto - 7/2/2014, 8:38 AM
It's weird though...I used to go
camping with my grandpa in Metamora.
Now...Batman's there.
Gusto - 7/2/2014, 8:41 AM
batz...lmao!!!!!
What the hell??!?!
blackandyellow - 7/2/2014, 8:41 AM
LMAO batz that was hilarious.
HachibiTheMC - 7/2/2014, 8:43 AM
this doesn't necessarily mean he'll play a role involving more mo-cap.

He was Kong in Peter Jackson's 2005 movie but he was also the character Lumpy...yeah...the chef...so it may be more mundane than people are hoping for. He could just be cast as "security guard 2" for all we know.

Not trying to piss in anyone's punch bowl, just sayin.

@Turk, you said "shit Fox ape movies".

Ummm.....WHAT? Did you seriously just utter such ridiculous horseshit? Oh, because it's FOX. You must hate it because FOX owns X-Men movie rights and you believe that Disney should have them. Yeah, that makes perfect sense.
