Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Thomas Kretschmann, a German actor known for his roles in The Pianist and King Kong, will play Baron von Strucker in Avengers: Age of Ultron. We previously reported on rumors that the villain would appear in the film, and that his appearance would tie into Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch's turn from villains to heroes. THR reports that the villain will appear as a nemesis for both Captain America and Nick Fury, and will appear in multiple movies.
Kretschmann currently plays Abraham von Helsing on NBC's Dracula.
