In addition to providing motion capture support on Avengers: Age of Ultron, we’ve known for some time that Andy Serkis would also have a live-action part in the film. Serkis’ role in the film has remained mysterious since production began, although it’s been speculated for a while that he’s playing Black Panther villain Ulysses Klaw. You can officially stop speculating now because Serkis himself has delivered confirmation.
Odds are director James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy film will be a lot of fun, given Gunn's pedigree and the cast, but I'm not sure it'll top this video of Vin Diesel being so super-excited about playing Groot that the's walking around the set of Fast 7 on high-tech stilts, hosting impromptu gatherings to talk about his tree-alien role, and, most importantly, high-fiving Kurt Russell.
Diesel posted the video on Facebook. Check it out after the jump.
