Would you look at this big bit of Marvel casting awesomeness! Marvel and director Joss Whedon have already cast their big bad villain in Avengers: Age of Ultron! Marvel has officially announced that James Spader will play Ultron in the film! How freakin' cool is that?!
I guess that kind of puts to rest the rumor that Paul Bettany will be playing the ultimate Ultron. I still think however there's a good possibility that the parts of the rumor about who Ultron really is could be true. You can read about that right here if you want, but be warned... it could contain spoilers.
Spader is an amazing actor who has won three Emmy Awards in his career. He's stars in several movies and TV shows such as Boston Legal, The Practice, The Office, and an upcoming show called The Blacklist. He also most recently had a role in the Steven Spielberg film Lincoln.
Avengers: Age of Ultron will bring the Marvel Universe’s biggest heroes together again to face one of their biggest villains, and it's set to be released on May 1st, 2015!
What do you all think about the casting of Spader as Ultron?
