SAS: RED NOTICE Star Andy Serkis Only Had An "Inkling" About Snoke's True Identity In STAR WARS - EXCLUSIVE

One of the biggest mysteries coming out of Star Wars: The Force Awakens was the true identity of Supreme Leader Snoke. There were plenty of theories online at the time, with the most popular being that he was somehow linked to Emperor Palpatine. The Last Jedi offered no answers, though a throwaway moment in The Rise of Skywalker confirmed Snoke was, in fact, just a cloned puppet.

With that, the mystery was solved, though not everyone loved the outcome. Serkis has previously talked about knowing Snoke's background, and while we had the legendary actor on the phone to discuss his new movie, SAS: Red Notice, we had to ask if he knew the Palpatine reveal was coming.

Supreme Leader Snoke is possibly one of your most talked about roles, and we learned in Episode IX that he was Palpatine all along...is that something you were ever made aware of in those first two movies? 

It was very much under wraps. Very much under wraps. I had an inkling, but it was not confirmed. 

It's definitely interesting to hear that Serkis suspected there might be plans for Snoke to be revealed as Palpatine, and you have to wonder how much of that "inkling" made it into his performance. 

Unfortunately, that was all we had time to ask when it came to Star Wars, but check back here a little later, as we'll have more from Andy on his role in The Batman and directing Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Next week, we'll be sharing our full chat about his standout performance in SAS: Red Notice.

Watch the trailer for the movie (which is released today in the UK and March 16th in the U.S.) below:

I totally forgot they let him direct Venom 2. It's about to be a total fever dream.

Also off-topic... Wonder Woman 1984 got a couple of Razzie nominations... worst supporting actress for Kristen Wigg and Worst Remake, Rip-off or Sequel.

I honestly much preferred the suggestion that Snoke was a pretender... a guy whose main force trick was some level of precognition which allowed him to prepare for the end of the Emperor and take advantage of things. He was a blinged-out vulture, unable to build something like the Empire himself, but well-suited to take advantage of chaos and a power-vacuum... but he was doomed by the rise of any truly talented Jedi/Sith, and so frantically tried to control and suppress them.

But, hey... clone puppet of the Emperor is a thing too, I guess.

@Chewtoy - I'm actually incorporating something like that into a book I'm writing. It's about these people who use a mysterious energy to give themselves superpowers, but then a guy comes in claiming to be the God who created the energy, so this almost holy war erupts between these characters, only for by the end its revealed he's just another guy who happens to have a power that can let him temporarily effect people's minds and learns very quickly how over his head he is when he sees one of the people fighting against him throw a building.

Serkis is a damn good actor. Wish he was given more to do with this role.

What utter rubbish from Serkis. Not only do we have confirmation from McDiarmid, we also have Ridley’s comments which prove Palpatine was never planned until just before filming. We’ve probably all read Duel of the Fates, which had no mention of Palpatine. So sorry, nah, this is BS from Serkis.

Such a wasted actor and a massively wasted opportunity to create a new villain for the ages. Shame Johnson chose to discard of everything that Abrams built up in 7 only for JJ to pick up the pieces of what could have been.

Kennedy dropped the ball with the decision to let a new director take care of every new SW movie. Should have been a single director helming all three with a consecutive vision.

A nothing character reduced in the end to not actually being a character at all. What a waste of Serkis
