You didn’t think I would let the year come to an end without bagging one more major kill from my pals over at Marvel now did you? That is not my style. Championships are won in the 4th quarter.
Anyway, now that Marvel found their Ant-Man in Paul Rudd (which was the worst kept secret in the town by the way), um, what is going on with their other big movie Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron?
Well, it seems major bad guy Ultron is going to have some company.
You see, there is a breakdown circulating in Hollywood where Marvel is looking for a PHYSICALLY IMPOSING MAN, age range 40-50, Caucasian, for a supporting role.
I found out that the supporting role is for, it’s…
BARON VON STRUCKER
In the comics, Baron Von Strucker is a super villain, one of the leaders of HYDRA, and an enemy of both S.H.I.E.L.D and The Avengers. He is supposedly ageless and keeps dying yet comes back, time and time again.
Here is a bit of a spoiler, from what I’m told, in the film Quicksilver & Scarlet Witch work for Baron Von Strucker. So are they HYDRA or MASTERS OF EVIL? That I’m not sure about. I would guess HYDRA because it was already established in the first Captain America film.
But that is not all. I got some names too.
Marvel has shown interest in actors…
Again, Marvel has shown in interest in both those actors, THAT DOESN’T MEAN THEY’RE IN THE FILM OR EVEN GOT OFFERS. Both actors are tall, in their forties, and fit the breakdown. Scott was last seen in my favorite TV show Strike Back and was almost Wolverine back in the day. Csokas I hear is dope in the upcoming Denzel Washington movie The Equalizer.
So look out Batman Vs Superman because Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron seems to have their own bald bad guy as well. Shit is getting real yo.
So happy holidays fanboy nation! This is my last Marvel scoop for 2013. I know it was a bumpy year but, I will be back and the big game scoop hunt shall continue in 2014.
Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron drops on May 1, 2015.
