Thomas Kretschmann Cast As 'Baron von Strucker' In AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON
It's shaping up to be a great day for Marvel casting news. THR report that Kretschmann (King Kong, NBC's Dracula) has signed on to play classic Captain America baddie Baron von Strucker in Joss Whedon's sequel. Read on for the details.
Thomas Kretschmann, who plays Abraham van Helsing on NBC’s Dracula, has been cast as classic Marvel villain Baron Wolfgang von Strucker in Joss Wheedon's Avengers: Age Of Ultron. In the comics Baron von Strucker is a former Nazi officer who becomes one of the heads of HYDRA. We has heard rumors that the character would pop up in the sequel, and they were evidently spot on. That same scoop from the Latino Review boys mentioned that Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) start out as bad guys working for the Baron, so we'll see if that part pans out also. THR also reveal that Kretschmann's deal is for several movies. What do you guys think of this casting?
