One of the many new additions to the cast of Marvel Studios’ upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron is German actor Thomas Kretschmann as the villain Baron von Strucker, a high-ranking member of Hydra. Strucker’s involvement in the upcoming film is still unknown, but rest assured it won’t be Kretschmann’s only appearance as the Baron.
“I don’t know details yet, they’re keeping their cards close to their chest – top secret!
Given that principal photography on the film won’t start until later this month, it’s interesting that Kretschmann would mention speaking with director Joss Whedon on the set. Is it possible that he’ll be appearing in something before Avengers: Age of Ultron?
Also starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen,and James Spader, Avengers: Age of Ultron will hit theaters May 1, 2015.
