The second villain of The Avengers: Age Of Ultron has let it be known that he has signed a multi-pictured deal with Marvel Studios.

Thomas Kretschmann, set to play Baron von Strucker (though not officially confirmed), let the news be known while chatting with BZ Berlin.

Translated via google:

This is of course great, I have a multi-picture deal, so I'm not only seen in the second part, but the plan I now have a longer term. But how exactly, I do not know yet that can not be broadcast in the cards - the highest secret level!

Now that we know Baron von Strucker won't be just a "one and done" for The Avengers 2, and that Marvel and Joss Whedon have further plans for the leader of Hydra (in the comics), perhaps down the road Thomas Kretschmann will appear in a third Captain America film.

Previous rumors suggested that Baron von Strucker would be instrumental with introducing both Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron-Taylor Johnson) into The Avengers 2 as well.

There is also some speculation online that Bard Fortress in Italy is the home of Kretschmann and Baron von Strucker.

"The Avengers: Age Of Ultron" hits May 1, 2015 directed by Joss Whedon starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson and Mark Ruffalo with James Spader as Ultron.
