One person who certainly has more than a bit of a clue is Andy Serkis who has cryptically admitted that he plays one character in the film.

The actor, famous for playing Gollum in Lord of the Rings and embodying the character of Caesar in the Planet of the Apes films, has kept particularly tight lipped about his involvement so far. What is known is that the narrator of the film’s teaser trailer is Serkis’ unspecified character - but was that actually him?

Apparently not but he wasn’t completely silent.

"The character..." he said before a pause. "He’s been through some stuff."
