The Avengers: Age Of Ultron has recently been ramping up its roster, and now here's news it's amped up the cast with beautiful-but-unknown Korean actress Kim Soo-hyun, who took to Twitter to announce her fortune.  No word on exactly which character she'll play, but rumors are that it's a sizable co-starring slot.  Soo-hyun teams up with a killer cast that includes stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson, but also Marvel newbies Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver), Thomas Kretschmann (Baron Wolfgang von Struker) and James Spader (Ultron).

Here's her Tweet translation:

“After a long wait, I’m happy to be back with great news. 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.”

Here she's studying up on the Marvel Universe for her role, only described as "A doctor partner of Iron Man Tony Stark."  A Marvel rep commented on the rampant speculation with further secrecy:

“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."

Dang their cloak-and-dagger routine!  Any clue on who Soo-hyun might play?  Maybe Moondragon?

The Avengers: Age of Ultron is set to luanch May 1, 2015.
