James Spader to Play Ultron in Marvel’s ‘Avengers’ Sequel


I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love the news that James Spader will be playing Ultron in the upcoming sequel to The Avengers. I must admit, I know nothing about the character. I only know that Spader will certainly make this film more fun. Marvel made the announcement today, and Avengers: Age of Ultron is set for a release date of May 1, 2015. Spader was last seen in Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, as the scene-stealing, vote purchasing W. N. Bilbo.

Lover of all things film and Oscar. Fantasy sports’ equivalent of George Steinbrenner. Your very own Han Solo, making friends all over the movie-loving galaxy in spite of himself. When he’s not ranking just about everything or dominating boardgames, Mark is breaking down the Oscar race 24/7 with Rain Man-like stats and knowledge. In his downtime, you can find him commiserating with other Northeast Ohio sports fans because a hero isn’t complete without a little heartbreak. If Game of Thrones, Lost, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Survivor are your style, then congratulations, you have something in common with this inglourious basterd.
