Thomas-Kretschmann-InsertCasting anyone in ‘The Avengers’ franchise always generates buzz, but fans should be excited to know that another villain will be coming to big screen sequel as well. Joss Whedon already has quite a few new faces to develop, we already confirmed that Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and James Spader will be appearing in the new film and now Thomas Kretschmann, (Abraham van Helsing on NBC’s Dracula), has also signed onto the project.
The project is being spearheaded by Joss Whedon, who is writing and directing the follow up to the blockbuster hit ‘The Avengers’. In the new film Elizabeth Olsen will star as the Scarlett Witch and Aaron Taylor-Johnson will take on the role of Quicksilver. We know that Ultron will be main villain in the film, that was taken by James Spader. As of right now it is being reported that Kretchmann will play Baron Wolfgang von Strucker, who in the comics, was a Nazi that would lead HYDRA.
Marvel failed to confirm the role in the movie, but more information is expected to be released over the next few weeks.
