Another villain for Age of Ultron?

Joss Whedon obviously thinks Ultron isn't enough for the Avengers as it looks like there could be a second villain in Age of Ultron.

It's not been confirmed officially by  Marvel yet but there is is a breakdown circulating in Hollywood where Marvel is looking for a Physically imposing man, aged between 40-50, Caucasian, for a support role and rumour is it's for Baron von Strucker!

Fans of the comics will know that Baron Wolfgang von Strucker is old-school, best known as one of Captain America's enemies and one of the main figures of Hydra.

First speculations indicate that the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver will work for von Strucker. Originally they worked for Magneto (their dad) as members of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants in the X-Men but since Disney cannot use those stories due to ownership rights, so switching them over to another villainous master makes sense.

As for who will play the pretty much ageless super villain, reports say that Marvel have shown interest in Marton Csokas and Dougray Scott. It's still early days but my money is on Dougray, he's been longing for a role in the Marvel cinematic universe and his acting skills are perfect for a villain of this stature.
