When you sign a deal with Marvel, chances are you are signing a multi-picture contract. Samuel L. Jackson is well-known for signing a deal that will have him appear in nine Marvel Studios movie. Obviously he isn’t the only one who signed a multi-pic deal; other actors have as well, and not just the heroes, but some villains, too. And these deals don’t mean they have to appear in the entire movie. For all we know they could be just cameo roles – if you’ve seen Thor: The Dark World, then you know that a cameo role probably counts.
Now Avengers: Age Of Ultron actor Thomas Kretschmann says that he has also signed one of those deals that locks him up to appear in more than one Marvel movie. Hit the jump to read more.
The actor, who joined the cast back in January, had signed on to appear as Baron Von Strucker to be an initial villain in the Avengers: Age Of Ultron. In the comics, the Hydra leader often goes up against Captain America. So if it is true that a deal has gone down, then it is possible that he could appear as the villain in Captain America 3.
Kretschmann confirmed his villainous role in the Avengers sequel as well as the multi-pic deal in an interview with B.Z. Berlin:
“That’s great of course. I have a multi-picture deal which means I will not only appear in the 2nd part, but they’re planning with me for a longer period of time. But I don’t know details yet, they’re keeping their cards close to their chest – top secret!”
The actor added that being on a big-budget film like Avengers: Age Of Ultron makes him nervous.
