It's super exciting that everyone is back for Avengers: Age Of Ultron! And the additions of a few more characters just make it all the bigger!
But one amazing, unique star was just added to the mix, and it's got us scratching our heads trying to figure out what role he could be playing. With this guy's range, it could LITERALLY be anything!
Who is this uncannily versatile actor?
Andy Serkis. Oh, you don't know Andy Serkis? How about this guy?
Or this guy?
How about King freakin' Kong?
OK, this is what he really looks like:
The fine actor and motion capture expert is in all the big movies, including the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII, and he's just let on that he'll be playing a role in the Avengers sequel!
But will the little-seen star be showing his face? Or just his movement? Andy isn't telling; he says:
"I'm not at liberty to mention. But it's all the same to me. I've never drawn a distinction when playing a role, whether it be live action or performance capture. Acting is acting. It's just basically what you wear to the set that’s different."
Andy's expertise, and the fact he has said he's working closely with Mark Ruffalo, have led some fans to surmise he might be playing Iron Man's big, bad Hulkbuster armor (above), revealed earlier this year!
No matter what he's doing on the film, we're sure everyone is thrilled to have his talent on board!
