Thomas Kretschmann reveals Baron Von Strucker will appear in multiple films

Thomas Kretschmann will star as Baron Von Strucker in Joss Whedon's THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, but in an interview with B.Z Berlin recently, the actor said he'll also be appearing in multiple films as the villain.

“I have a multi-picture deal which means I will not only appear in the 2nd part, but they're planning with me for a longer period of time. But I don't know details yet, they're keeping their cards close to their chest - top secret!”

Kretschmann was also asked if he was anxious at all about THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON since it has such a huge budget.

“Oh yes, I was nervous. I was overprepared; then on the set I went up to Joss Whedon, who passes for a genius, and said 'this is my first day, this is huge, please have patience with me, I'm a bit nervous.'”

What's interesting about Thomas Kretschmann's comments is principal photography isn't suppose to start until later this month, so does this mean he has already filmed a few scenes for Joss Whedon? "Action photography sequences" in South Africa began earlier this month, but none of the main cast members were expected to take part.

Many think Thomas Kretschmann's Baron Von Strucker is going to play a huge part in future Marvel films, including CAPTAIN AMERICA 3. That film hasn't been confirmed yet, but most think a third Cap movie is going to happen, and with the character being introduced in THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON (or will there be a cameo in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER?), perhaps he'll be the main villain for the next Captain America film as well.

THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON will hit theaters on May 1st, 2015.
