Actor Andy Serkis will return as Ulysses Klaue in Black Panther. Having first played the character who is the nemesis of Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, it’s been a good while since we’ve seen him, so chances are he’s been up to a lot in the time between films.
Serkis recently spoke with CinemaBlend and discussed what his character has been doing since the last Avengers film:
“He’s just basically been causing mayhem in the world, on minor and major levels. He’s a smart guy in the sense that he’s a businessman as well as an arms dealer. He manages to cover his tracks. He has a mercenary army that works with him in different locations all around the world and he’s able to go down rabbit holes and appear in other places. He’s got the smarts, but he’s also a little whacked out.”

According to Serkis, Klaue is fairly well resourced and has connections across the globe, he should prove a formidable adversary for Black Panther, and having Serkis in the role should make the character a memorable villain, as opposed to, I don’t know, whoever the bad guy was in Thor 2.
It is also nice to see Serkis once again play an actual real-life character that isn’t completely engulfed by CGI. While he has been a working actor since the late 80s (and also does a good deal of voice-over work), but he became far more well known for being a pioneer in the art of motion capture acting.
Black Panther opens in theaters February 16, 2018.
