There’s been a lot of talk lately that Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will be heading to South Korea when production gets underway on Joss Whedon’s eagerly-anticipated sequel The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and now it’s been reported that Korean actress and supermodel Kim Soo Hyun (a.k.a. Yoo Ri El) has been cast in the film.
According to KDramaStars, “if Kim Soo Hyun is cast, she will play a doctor who assists Tony Stark/Iron Man, played by Robert Downey Jr. Previous reports said that she would play a villain but now it is known that she will only start out working for Ultron, played by James Spader, then will shift her allegiance to good guy Tony Stark.”
The Avengers: Age of Ultron will bring the curtain down on Marvel’s Phase Three and is set to see Robert Downey Jr. and James Spader joined in the cast by returning stars Chris Evans (Captain America), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Mark Ruffalo (The Incredible Hulk), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Don Cheadle (War Machine), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill) and Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) alongside MCU newcomers Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene) as Scarlet Witch, Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass 2) as Quicksilver, and Thomas Kretschmann (Dracula) as Baron Strucker.
