James Spader’s casting as Ultron in The Avengers sequel has been one of the most welcomed casting announcements of late for fans. We like James Spader and we think he will be great as Ultron just as most of you liked the idea of him being Ultron.
Writer/director Joss Whedon is quoted about casting Spader in Avengers: Age of Ultron, who he says was his only choice.
“Spader was my first and only choice. He’s got that hypnotic voice that can be eerily calm and compelling, but he’s also very human and humorous. Ultron is not Hal (from 2001: A Space Odyssey). Spader can play all of the levels. He’s the guy to break The Avengers into pieces.”
Avengers: Age of Ultron will open in theaters on May 1, 2015.
