Kim Soo Hyun lands unknown role in Avengers: Age of Ultron
Kim Soo Hyun is apparently a bit of a fan...

It looks as though rumours of a Korean addition to 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' are true… as Kim Soo Hyun reveals that she's joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Although Marvel's 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' is set to bring the gang back together for another epic superhero romp, it looks as though there's always time for some new additions. And while Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch will be joining the ranks of The Avengers, it looks as though Korean actress Kim Soo Hyun will appear in an apparently 'substantial' supporting role.

Taking to twitter, the young Korean actress revealed that she will be joining the Marvel Universe after a long-standing rumour connected her to a part in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'.

"After a long wait, I'm happy to be back with great news," she said on twitter (via a translation by Drama Fever). "I have a lot to do ahead of me, but for now, the words 'Welcome to the Marvel Universe' are amazing and kind of overwhelming. I was a fan of Marvel Comics, and if you really like something, looks like fate can make it happen."

According to recent rumours, her role is likely to place her at the side of Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark… though in what capacity remains to be seen. Of course, this is just a rumour and her actual role is still shrouded in secrecy.

"It would be a spoiler," says Drama Stars. "So we can't tell you which character Kim Soo Hyung will play." And their Marvel source seems to echo that. "Marvel always prohibits telling too much about the story. Her character is already decided and the scene is already written so we cast Kim Soo Hyun, but we can't let you know about her character. We only can say that her character is a substantial supporting role."

Rumoured to appear as a doctor, could this place her within Stark industries? Maybe even an associate or relative of Dr Wu? For now, we'll have to wait and see… but with rumours that she's set to appear at the 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' premiere, it might not be too long.

Who do you think Kim Soo Hyun will play? Will she appear alongside Tony Stark or in a completely unrelated role? Let us know what you think in the comments below…
