Andy Serkis in `Avengers: Age of Ultron`

Los Angeles: `Dawn of the Planet of the Apes` star Andy Serkis has landed a role in the upcoming `Avengers: Age of Ultron`.

Serkis already joined "Age of Ultron" as a consultant through his motion-capture company, The Imaginarium. Speaking of his involvement in the Marvel movie as well as in "Star Wars episode VII", the actor said: "I`m playing a role (in both films). On `The Avengers`, I`ve been working closely with Mark Ruffalo."

When asked whether or not his face would appear in the movie, Serkis said, "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."
