With the release of a new Black Panther trailer, Marvel Studios gave us a different look at one of Black Panther’s main adversaries: Ulysses Klaue.
In the first trailer, fans mostly got a glimpse of a seemingly captured Klaue, portrayed by Andy Serkis, as he’s being interrogated by Everett K. Ross, played by Martin Freeman. The new trailer offers a look at Klaue in action, complete with a sonic arm cannon. He can be seen obliterating a vehicle with his new weapon during a high-speed chase.
Fans were first introduced to Ulysses Klaue in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Ultron seeks out Klaue obtain vibranium, and their dealings eventually end in Klaue having his armed sliced off by an enraged Ultron. This left the door open for the character to gain his signature comic book weapon.
Ulysses Klaue is known as Klaw in the Marvel Comics Universe, where he becomes one of Black Panther’s biggest rivals after murdering his father. In the comics, Klaw creates a prosthetic sonic emitter from vibranium. It seems that Marvel Cinematic Universe Klaue has done the same, except that in the trailer his arm isn’t simply one emitter, but it emerges from within his hand and shifts into a firing position.
Directed by Ryan Cooler (Creed, Fruitvale Station), Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Wyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, with Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.
Black Panther will be released February 16, 2018.
5 Reasons We’re Excited For ‘Thor: Ragnarok’
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is out on home media and Spider-Man: Homecoming has been playing in theaters for a while now, so it’s time to look forward to the next Marvel movies, the first being Thor: Ragnarok.
The trailer for the film is incredible. The vibe, the action, the set-design, the soundtrack, every element of the trailer screams, “This is a different kind of Thor movie.”
And that’s exactly what we need. Thor: The Dark World was the most easily forgettable Marvel sequel, only distinguishable from the original for its use of fan-favorite villain Loki. Thor: Ragnarok looks poised to switch up the formula, seeming more like a fun intergalactic romp than a brooding space epic.
Judging from the trailer and other positive buzz, there’s plenty of cause to be excited for Thor: Ragnarok. Here are the 5 reasons why. Click next to get started!
