El Mayimbe at Latino Review is at it again with another Scoop, this one coming from work on Avengers 2: Age of Ultron.
One of the castings for the movie is for a 40-50 year old man who is physically imposing. Well, according to his sources, that role is for Baron Von Strucker. Not only that, but his sources are also telling him that Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch will be working for Von Strucker.
Actors being looked at for the role so far, he says, are Martin Csokas and Dougray Scott. Not to say they've been cast, just that they are on the shortlist of actors Marvel is looking at so far.
Drew at HitFix has more on Baron Von Strucker's supposed role:
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.
