Since the announcement of The Avengers: Age of Ultron at Comic-Con, fans could only guess who would be playing the mechanical menace Well today, Marvel Studios has announced their star to play the big baddie; and playing Ultron is...James Spader. Didn't see that one coming.
Spader is known for his work on film as well as television. He played the major protagonist in Stargate; and is known for his television role in Boston Legal. Recently, Spader was apart of Steven Spielberg's historic drama: Lincoln. Now, the adaptable actor takes on this new role; one that will certainly have its own caliber.
When fans thought of an actor for Ultron, many would not have guessed an actor like James Spader (personally, I thought Benedict Cumberbatch seemed right for the character). However, Spader is fairly versatile. He will certainly surprise people come 2015.
James Spader joins the Superhero ensemble. Confirmed to return in the sequel are Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo and Samuel L Jackson. The three other Avengers have yet to sign; but they are certain to make a return.
See what Spader has in store as Ultron when The Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters May 1,2015.
