James Spader, famous for many different roles, including Robert California from ‘The Office’ and one of the leads in the 90’s Stargate, is set to join the ranks of Marvel supervillains very soon as he recently was cast as Ultron for the next Avengers movie!
Spader typically plays a character with a little wit and spunk, but his current role on the NBC show ‘Blacklist’ perhaps gives a preview to his darker side. Ultron is one of the most feared and revered villains in the Marvel universe, and it will be interesting to see how his depiction of the robot-style character plays out. At the most recent Comic-Con a teaser clip features Tony Stark’s Iron Man mask morphing into the head of Ultron, so whether the script will follow the Comic book storyline closely, or we see some twists, as we did with Iron Man 3, is yet to be seen.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is set to release May 1, 2015! Make sure to head back for more info as it breaks.
