Andy Serkis confirmed he has been offered a role in the 'Avengers' follow-up 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

Andy Serkis has confirmed he will appear in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'.

The 'Star Wars: Episode VII' actor - who is already working on the sequel as a consultant through his motion-capture company The Imaginarium' - has revealed he will also be making an appearance in the film.

He told Variety: "The Imaginarium is the performance capture consultant and I'm playing a role in both Avengers and Star Wars."

However, when asked if his face will appear in the Marvel follow-up, he explained: "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."

The 50-year-old actor also spoke about working closely alongside Mark Ruffalo after he was hired to assist the 46-year-old with his portrayal of The Hulk for the comic book blockbuster.

He said: "On Avengers, I've been working closely with Mark Ruffalo.

"There are tools and ways of working with an actor that makes them feel that they own the character, and a character the size of the Hulk needs ownership, which Mark has now."

'Avengers: Age of Ultron' will be released in the UK on April 24 2015, while 'Star Wars: Episode VII' will be released in December 2015.

Ultron, an artificial intelligence created by Tony Stark (Downey Jr) to keep the peace, goes rogue and decides to kill off the Avengers. Barely logical but impressively entertaining superhero fun; Johansson and Olsen are central to the action and Whedon's script is strong, snappy and irreverent, but it doesn't have much…
