Andy Serkis Teases Snoke’s Possible return.
I spoke with Andy Serkis yesterday about his work in Marvel Studios’ Black Panther, in which he reprises his role as the villainous Ulysses Klaue, and I couldn’t resist asking him a quick question about the recent events in a galaxy far, far away – specifically, how he reacted when he first read about Snoke’s ultimate fate in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. But his answer implied that perhaps that memorable scene wasn’t quite as final as it appeared.
My full conversation with Serkis from the Black Panther junket will hit the site soon, but there was one particularly intriguing section that I thought was worth sharing before the rest. Here’s what happened when I raised the Star Wars topic and asked about his reaction to Snoke’s demise:
“Look, it’s Star Wars, so you never know how life, or whether life can be come back to or not. Whether you can be resuscitated or brought back. I was shocked. Dramatically, it felt absolutely right for that moment in the film, so I didn’t question it. I just think it’s a very, very important scene, so I didn’t question it. But I do, I know it’s left fans feeling like, that they were really searching for something there. And what I’m saying is, who knows?”
I followed up and asked if he’d spoken with J.J. Abrams, who introduced Snoke in The Force Awakens and will be returning to complete the trilogy by co-writing and directing Star Wars: Episode 9, but Serkis said he hadn’t spoken with him yet.
