Marvel’s Black Panther is set to hit the theaters and he’s bringing one of his oldest nemeses with him.
Andy Serkis will play Ulysses Klaue, the villain better known simply as Klaw, in Black Panther, reprising his role from Avengers Age of Ultron.
Those who have been familiar with Klaw from the Marvel Comics universe will be aware that the baddie’s main weapon is a sonic emitter made from vibranium, the rare precious metal found only in the Black Panther’s nation of Wakanda, which Klaw uses as a prosthetic limb.
It has been confirmed by Entertainment Weekly that Klaw will have a version of this special weapon in the full movie. Klaw is said to use an advanced piece of Wakandan mining equipment as a kind of sonic cannon attached in place of the arm he lost in Avengers: Age of Ultron. The reason the item does not show up in the Black Panther trailer released last night is that it was taken from him before his interrogation and is, in fact, perhaps what led the authorities to Klaw in the first place.
