This upcoming year will see the Marvel sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron begin shooting, but just when you thought the studio was done casting its films, word has come down from El Mayimbe an Latino-Review that another villain is likely going to be cast in Joss Whedon’s new film.
El Mayimbe reports on a scoop he has that Marvel is looking to add the HYDRA leader Baron von Strucker to the film and while no names have yet been mentioned in terms of casting, both Martin Csokas and Dougray Scott are heavily rumored for the role.
On a side, it’s clear that Marvel has a clear look for the character and both Csokas and Scott are virtually twins so we pretty much can imagine what the character will look like on film.
Avengers: Age of Ultron already has a villain in James Spader who is playing the titular Ultron but HYRDA is an organization from the comic realm that Marvel is trying to crossover into it’s new cinematic universe that has been crafted over the years. Having two villains in the film is an interesting concept and this likely also means that Captain America: Winter Soldier will be tied even more directly into the 2015 Avengers sequel since HYRDA is responsible for creating that the Winter Soldier.
No matter who gets the role of Bran von Strucker, Avengers: Age of Ultron won’t have just one villain and the movie is starting to become even more gigantic than we once thought.
