Uh, I don't know anything about this villain so, uh, I have nothing to say.

 Personally, I think he is more of a second tier villain. More of threat in the seventies Cap comics. Now just a baddie for second or third tier heroes.

I read he'll only pop in the beginning, and will set up Scarlett Witch & Quicksilver.  Also, I like how when they add characters to this movie everyboy is like "it's cool" but if spider man or superman has multiple villains/characters then its like "this is horseshit!".  Gotta love the internet.

He will also probably set up for Cap 3.

Hanso, I think it's because Joss is known for weaving multiple characters successfully, Avengers being a great example. It's partially due to his TV background, which demands it. Whereas with Spidey, I think a lot of peeps are scared of what happened in the past with Spiderman 3.

 Agreed Robert, def a second tier villain. I'm sure he's not going to be a major focus, probably a vehicle to introduce characters or move the story along. Maybe set up a situation for Cap 3. Or Shield tv show? I dunno.

Unusual choice.  he's pretty much first tier Robert, having been the founder and premiere leader of HYDRA, but is chiefly the arch-nemesis of Nick Fury and SHIELD.  He's fought Captain America and pre-Wolverine Logan a few times but I can't really remember any direct involvement against the Avengers themselves.  Ironmaniac is right, I think he'd be more suitable for Agents of SHIELD or Cap 3, or the Nick Fury movie if they get that made.

Think of the potential for a Red Skull reference. I'm looking forward to how Joss Whedon and Marvel work this character.

If they could work out Arnim Zola, then they can do Baron Strucker.

Hanso, I agree. Avengers can have 25 characters... the others should only have 2? Doesn't make sense. 

Ironmaniac, I would also agree about Joss and his skills.

I think the other reason people may be ok with multiple villians in Avengers is because you have multiple heroes where as with Spiderman you only have Spidey and it would be pretty exhausting for Spiderman to try to fend off a ton of villians all at once. I'm not saying it can't be done and be done well with a single superhero Ex: Batman I'm just saying that it can be quite difficult to pull off on the big screen.
