Thomas Kretschmann is having a huge year, because he stars in Stalingrad, which has been a huge hit in Russia and is doing well in other countries even if it has slid quietly into American theaters. But Kretschmann will invade the US multiplex in 2015 via a significant role in Avengers: Age of Ultron. He plays the villainous Baron Wolfgang von Strucker, a long-running Marvel bad guy who wears a monocle and everything.
Strucker doesn’t have a huge role in the Avengers sequel, but like other Marvel actors it turns out that Kretschmann has a multi-picture deal with the company. And so speculation has started about where else Strucker will show up. Read More »

The road to the end of Phase Two started last week when production began on Avengers: Age of Ultron. We previously reported the crew, without the major cast members, had traveled to Johannesburg, South Africa to film a sequence that would comprise the first 10 minutes of the film. Whether that meant we’d see Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch or Baron Von Strucker, we weren’t sure. However, a few fans put some footage from the set on Instagram, and it pretty definitively argues Avengers: Age of Ultron will start with Hulk rampaging through the city. Check out the clips below.

The journey to May 1, 2015 begins February 11, 2014. Earlier today, Joss Whedon began production on Avengers: Age of Ultron in Johannesburg, South Africa. The crew will film on location for two weeks before going to Italy, South Korea and finally UK’s Pinewood Studios where the majority of the film will be shot.
According to reports, the opening 10 minutes of the film are set in the major South African city. However, none of the film’s stars – Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, etc. – are filming yet. We’ll surely learn more as production rolls along, but for now: it’s on! [SA News & IoL]
