‘Age of Ultron’ Gets A New Villain

Because Ultron apparently isn’t enough to occupy the time of The Avengers, the second installment of the super hero franchise, Avengers: Age of Ultron, shall be bringing yet another villain. This one’s an old classic, the vicious Nazi bastard comic fans know and love – Baron Wolfgang von Strucker.

Taking on the role of von Strucker will be actor Thomas Kretschmann. You may have seen his face on NBC’s recent Dracula series in the role of Abraham van Helsing. From “van” to “von”… I guess that makes sense, right? And while I’m pleased to see Ultron making his appearance, I’ve always been more partial to evil of von Strucker. Now we’ll just have to wait and see how much of a role HYDRA gets to play in the new flick.
