Recently (as in a couple of weeks), I had some very interesting news flit across my desk from colleague and Editor-in-Chief, Steve Lemlek, over at UnleashtheFanboy.com concerning Joss Whedon’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”
Most of you may have heard by now that James Spader is going to play the film’s title villain, Ultron, in the upcoming film; however, what you may not know is that Paul Bettany’s character of Jarvis in all of the Iron Man films and first Avengers movie is going to become Ultron during “Avengers 2.”
What I am guessing is that Tony Stark’s A.I., Jarvis, is going to become sentient, which will then lead to the evolution of Ultron. Most-likely Bettany will voice Jarvis/Ultron till he completely goes rogue and transforms into Ultron, which will then be played by James Spader-- With the birthing of an exoskeleton Spader will rise!
This is definitely an interesting development considering that fans were wondering how Ultron was going to come to be considering Marvel Studios and Joss Whedon have publicly exclaimed that Ultron will not be created by Ant-Man akin Ultron’s comic book origin tale.
We will have to see what else Whedon has to say and offer us as we get closer and closer to the release of the “Avengers 2.” I’d like to thank Steve Lemlek for the tip and urge all of my fans to check out www.unleashthefanboy.com for quality news and info.
