James Spader is Ultron in "Avengers: Age of Ultron"

James Spader is Ultron in "Avengers: Age of Ultron"Submit Comment
Marvel has announced that James Spader ("Boston Legal") has been cast as Ultron, the main villain in "Avengers: Age of Ultron." The news comes just days after a rumor hit the internet that Paul Bettany will play the character.

According to the rumor, Tony Stark would build Ultron, since the villain's true creator, Ant-Man, won't appear in the movie. Since Stark's computer assistant JARVIS is the voice of all his suits, it was assumed that he would also be the voice of Ultron. And since Bettany is the real voice of JARVIS, he would also be the voice of Ultron.

We also heard that Marvel was planning to let Bettany provide the motion-capture for the villain, but now it's clear that the job has gone to Spader, who may also provide the voice for Ultron.

Maybe Whedon cast Spader as Ultron because Spader and RDJ were in Less Than Zero together and Whedon thinks it's a clever idea to have a semi-reunion of the actors in this sequel.

@Deaft0ne Don't forget Tuff Turf. I could definitely see potential in this casting choice!

Paul Bettany sits alone, naked in his house, lashing his backside with a whip at this sad news.

Yeah and Spader has a cool voice naturally so an amplified and synthesized Ultron voice of Spader could be really creepy and freaky sounding.

Spader is a great actor but he doesn't have a menacing presence whatsoever.

It's an inspired casting choice, at least.

@boogiel
Look at him in the new series "The Black List". He is like Hannibal Lecter in the advertisement. Plus, as the character's designs show, he is not going to look like himself. Either it will be motion-capture like the Hulk or he will wear the outfit and use CGI to dress it up. I mean he'll be under thick armor so his weight shouldn't be the worse although he will probably get in better shape. I definitely think it will be motion-capture though which, if it's anything like Hulk in The Avengers, will look great. Plus Armor is easier to do than flesh.

Spader seems more likely to collapse to his knees, mouth agape in the receiving position than to instill a sense of villainy. But ill keep an open mind.

But seriously, the guys a good actor and I'm sure he'll pull it off. At least they didn't go with Ben Affleck or some sh*t. I mean, who would?

So I've been on vacation, what else is new on WP?

He was the best part of the otherwise derivative of Pulp Fiction "2 Days In The Valley".

"Spader is a great actor but he doesn't have a menacing presence whatsoever."

Are you kidding? Spader's entire career (minus Boston Legal) has been built on being a creepy menacing mofo. Whether its comedy or suspense thriller the dude plays the eccentric closet homosexual manipulator better than anyone. There is NOTHING creepier than James Spader :)

BTW I'm glad to see him making a mini comeback lately. He's never really gone anywhere but he did kind of fall off in the mid 90s after 2 Days in the Valley and before he escaped to TV. Got to give it to these 80s guys. Sheen, RDJ, Sutherland, Spader, when they bounce back they bounce back pretty hard. Even Michael J Fox is back in the mix :)

Spader was good in the visual Nyquil LINCOLN. It was nice to see him in a meaty big screen role again.

He was also good in his short THE OFFICE run.

@DeaftOne. Spader did stand out in that film. Charlize Theron's young, beautiful breasts stood out as well.
