‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’s Thomas Kretschmann Joins ‘Indiana Jones 5’
The next installment in the Indiana Jones franchise is quickly gathering its uncanny cast to star alongside Harrison Ford. He returns to one of his most iconic roles for the first time since 2008’s Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of The Crystal Skulls. Plot details for the upcoming film are being kept under wraps as the film will be the first in the series not directed by cinema icon, Steven Spielberg. Recently the project added Madds Mikkelsen alongside Fleabag star Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and it seems the project isn’t done adding to its cast just yet.
It’s being reported that German actor Thomas Kretschmann has joined the cast of the upcoming installment in an undisclosed role. Kretschmann is most known for his role as Baron Von Strucker in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appearing briefly in the end credits scene of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and in Avengers: Age of Ultron. His run of the character was short-lived, ass he met his untimely demise at the hands of Ultron.
Indiana Jones 5 is currently set to release on July 29th, 2022, and will be directed by James Mangold alongside the return of John Williams, who will once again compose the score for the film, with Steven Spielberg remaining on the project as a producer.
