‘Black Panther’ Villain Ulysses Klaue’s Backstory Revealed in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Easter Egg

Ulysses Klaue aka Andy Serkis had the quietest and a brief role to play in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” when he was introduced as the guy who had access to Wakandan Vibranium. Ultron who wanted to get his hands on some of that indestructible metal approached him until the “Avengers” completely foiled the plan and a fight ensued. However, an Easter egg was discovered from the movie and revealed more about Ulysses Klaue.

According to Cinema Blend, Marvel fan page called Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has posted a high quality picture of a file that Tony pulled out in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” in order to figure out Ultron’s next move. The file has Klaue’s picture from three different angles and has a little description of him given in it.

According to the file, Klaue was an assassin who was hired to take down T’Chaka, who happens to be T’Challa aka Black Panther’s father. The reason for the assassination was an option just in case T’Chaka refused to negotiate Wakanda’s resources including Vibranium. The assassination would take place at the Bilderberg conference and Klaue would be paid a sum of $10 million.

It is being said that Klaue also had a personal reason to be there since he had a personal vendetta against T’Chaka. T’Chaka had killed Klaue’s great grandfather back in the 19th Century and hence he had this desire for revenge.

However in the movie, chances are T’Chaka is still alive because Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige mentioned that T’Challa and his father discuss the abuse of Vibranium that occurred recently. Perhaps, that is the reason why they shouldn’t confide themselves to the borders of Wakanda anymore. Maybe then “Captain America: Civil War” will show T’Chaka’s death and probably it will be at the hands of the Winter Soldier, which in turn will lead to T’Challa chasing him and extracting revenge.

Screen Rant added that as of now Ulysses Klaue has been confirmed as an assassin and the antagonist of “Black Panther” movie, which will release on July 6, 2018. Until then fans will look up to “Captain America: Civil War” to reveal some more hidden secrets in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
