Possibly teasing their cinematic future, Marvel's Captain America: The First Avenger screenwriters have revealed that 'Baron Zemo' & Baron Strucker' were at one point included

Now chatting with IFC, the screenwriters of this summer's Captain America: The First Avenger blockbuster hit, Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus, have revealed classic villains who were in early drafts, but were evidently dropped. Somewhat teasing that they could appear in future installments, read on below.

There were a few classic villains that were planned for the first film, only to be removed in subsequent drafts. The pair previously revealed that evil despot Baron Zemo was in an early draft, but he wasn't the only sinister side character in those versions of the script.

"Baron Strucker was in there for a while, but he wasn't doing enough to justify wasting him in the film," said McFeely. "We certainly tried things, and ended up settling on the more useful Red Skull and Arnim Zola. But they're all still on the table," he teased.

"There wasn't a sequence with Master Man that ended up on the cutting room floor or anything," laughed Markus. "But there was an endless array of scenes we could've drawn from, and may draw from in the future. I'm not being cryptic when I say that, either - I'm just being a comic book geek. For example, some day, whether it be in an 'Iron Man' movie or a 'Captain America' movie or any other Marvel movie, I want to see M.O.D.O.K. float down the hall."

This news seemingly confirms an exclusive last year from our very own Josh Wilding, which revealed that 'Baron Zemo' concept art had been created for the movie. But of course, like any production, things changed. However, because Zemo, as well Strucker are "still on the table," could they maybe appear in the much-anticipated sequel? What do you think?

Captain America: The First Avenger focuses on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America. As Captain America, Rogers joins forces with Bucky Barnes and Peggy Carter to wage war on the evil HYDRA organization, led by the villainous Red Skull. Starring Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Tommy Lee Jones, Hayley Atwell, Samuel L. Jackson, Stanley Tucci and Hugo Weaving, the film hits shelves on Dvd and blu-ray October 25, 2011.
