Hydra has a hand in this due to the connection in Captain America:The Winter Soldier. Zemo is probably going to be in Cap 3.

Yup, and if they could get NC-W as Zemo, it would be about as perfect as it could get.

How cool would a Thunderbolts movie be with Zemo.

Jaimie Lannister is always being cast as Aquaman, but Zemo is actually spot on perfect!!!

I don't know enough of what they're doing with Strucker in this movie or how he's being interpreted, so I can't really judge this casting with respect to that.

But in general I really like Krestchmann. He has presence on the screen and there's something about his performances ("vulnerability" is the closest word I can come up with) that makes me like his characters. It will be interesting to see him play a straight up villain.

So overall I approve.

NC-W needs to be Doctor Strange, I'd rather have someone like Christoph Waltz as Zemo

I know this has nothing to do with the Avengers but I think NCW would be a great Riddler. Honestly he is just a great actor so there are loads of roles he would be great for.

So for anyone who's already seen TWS:

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Does Strucker look much like his comic book counterpart, and does he have an accent?

Well Thomas Krestchmann is German so I imagine he is using his own accent to play a character who is also German

Yeah probably, but actual confirmation would be nice. After all, the actress who played Viper in TW was Russian and she was playing a character who was from Eastern Europe in the comics, and yet she had an American accent. Scarlett's playing a Russian character but she doesn't have an accent (to be clear, I don't actually mind/care that she doesn't have one, it's just an observation to demonstrate my point).

The mid-credits scene leaked. Krestchmann has a shaved head, monocle and his German accent just like his comic counterpart

Just saw the leaked video and it looks like he has a buzz cut, not a bald head. He's still got the monocle though, which is bad ass!

I didn't notice any hair at all, then again the lights in the theatre were on when the scene was airing so I guess that's just one of the details I couldn't make out

I wish Hydra had more green colors to them. The black clothing is, well, uninspiring.

I don't quite know how he's going to fit into the film and how he'll get into the mix with Ultron also in the fray, but I'm now very excited about what Thomas Krestchmann brings to Age of Ultron as Von Strucker.

I guess until he plays Zemo, Strucker will fill that spot. Having both of them in the MCU would be beyond cool!

Do you guys think there should be a history between Baron Von Strucker and Nick Fury? We don't know much about Nick Fury's backstory in the MCU, other than that he lost his eye at some point, and we don't know what Baron Von Strucker's is going to be because I doubt they're going to go the WW2 route with it.

I think Von Strucker and Fury will face off in a MCU film eventually. Von Strucker is going to be a recurring villain.

I want Baron Zemo to be played by either Nikolaj Coster-Waldau from Game Of Thrones, Lars Mikkelsen from Sherlock or Thorbjørn Harr from Vikings.

I have a feeling that Strucker will be Furys old arch nemesis in the MCU. Maybe even the one who took his eye.

Even though it was a small glimpse, he looks so good. Should be a great villain
