James Spader will face off against Earth’s Mightiest Heroes as the villain in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the sequel to 2012’s record-breaking “Marvel’s The Avengers.” The Emmy Award-winning actor will play Ultron in the Avengers’ much anticipated return to the big screen from writer/director Joss Whedon. The film comes to theaters on May 1, 2015.
Well there you have it. The original Dr. Danial Jackson will now take up the role of the major villain that The Avengers will have to face in the upcoming film Avengers: Age of Ultron. While this is worthy news, I don’t have a lot to say about it because there is so much unknown about the upcoming film right now.
I can say that, other than Stargate, I have only seen Spader in one film that I know of, and that was Lincoln. He seems like a fine actor though, and Whedon has a way of bringing out the best in actors, so I’m looking forward to it.
