Thomas Kretschmann joins cast of ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’

"Valkyrie" New York PremiereGerman actor Thomas Kretschmann has been cast as Baron Wolfgang Von Strucker in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The actor’s name may not ring a bell straight away, but you may recently have seen him as Van Helsing in the TV drama ‘Dracula’. His role in the Avengers sequel certainly shouldn’t pose a challenge for him either; The character of Von Strucker is a former Nazi officer, and Kretschmann is no stranger to that type of role, having played similar parts in Stalingrad, Downfall, The Pianist, Eichmann, and The Nazi Officer’s wife.

Let us know your thoughts on this casting.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is due for release on May 1, 2015.
