Chalk this up as a long shot. But Claudia Kim’s character in Avengers Age of Ultron has the last name of Cho. Could this be in relation to one of the smartest people in the Marvel Universe, Amadeus Cho?
From Comic Book Movie:
It may not be a huge reveal, but at least we now know Claudia Kim is not playing a major character from the comics… or do we? Disney failed to offer Dr. Cho’s first name in the caption of the new Avengers: Age of Ultron image released yesterday (below), but there is one notable character from the Marvel lore that shares that surname. Amadeus Cho has appeared mostly as a supporting character in comics featuring the Avengers, especially Hulk and Hercules. However, given he’s male, and is often portrayed as a teen prodigy, the common surname may just be a coincidence as opposed to a direct reference to that Marvel character; maybe. Anyhow, we still don’t know exactly how “substantial” Claudia Kim’s Dr. Cho role will be, but it now seems likely that she’s one of the four prominent female roles that Joss Whedon referred to back in July. Plus, it was previously reported that Claudia Kim would take part in the action once the villainous Ultron and his big plan to wipe out humanity takes to South Korea in Avengers: Age of Ultron. What do you think?
So, it is a long shot. But Marvel isn’t known for making random plays in their movies. Could this be Amadeus’ mom? Who knows. Cho is a fairly common surname.
Amadeus Cho first appears in Amazing Fantasy Vol. 2 #15, which is a low priced book, but it is searched for due to the character’s popularity. He already appears in the cartoon Ultimate Spider-man as the wearer of the Iron Spider costume.
