UPDATE: Two Actors Eyed For 'Baron Von Strucker' Role In THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON
Apparently, Marvel are interested in two actors (whose identity you'll find after the jump) for the role of HYDRA leader, 'Baron Von Strucker' in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. We also have details on how Quicksiler and Scarlet Witch will be introduced in the movie. Check it out!
Latino-Review (who I would once again like to remind you have had pretty much all of their recent scoops confirmed by trades like Variety and The Hollywood Reporter not too long after dropping them) have revealed some very interesting information about The Avengers: Age of Ultron today. Apparently, Marvel are searching for a Caucasian actor between 40-50 described as a "PHYSICALLY IMPOSING MAN". The role? Baron Von Strucker, one of the main leaders of HYDRA (which seemingly confirms speculation that the organisation will resurface in Captain America: The Winter Soldier). They add that, "in the film Quicksilver & Scarlet Witch work for Baron Von Strucker." However, that's not all! Marvel are apparently looking at Marton Csokas (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) and Dougray Scott (Strike Back) for the role, but no offer has been made at this point; they're simply two of the actors that the studio are looking at. How do you guys feel about this news?
UPDATE: HitFix have some additional details on Baron Von Strucker's role in the sequel:
"In "Age Of Ultron," Baron Von Strucker is the initial threat, the guy they're fighting at the start of the film. He does not have a major ongoing role in the film, but he is responsible for bringing Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch into contact with the Avengers in the first place, since they start the film working either with or or the Baron. If you look at this like a James Bond movie, Von Strucker's the bad guy they'll take care of in the pre-credits sequence before they move into the main story. Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch have a complicated journey in this film, and the question of whether they're good or bad is one of the big things driving the movie overall."
