Marvel Finds its Latest Villain in James Spader

Of all the Avengers’ villains out there, “Ultron” has always been my favorite (Kang the Conqueror is a distant second).  He has long represented a number of things in the Marvel Universe, but the biggest being that he is what the truest form of the dark side of technology looks like.

Think HAL 9000 and SkyNET are scary?  They got their inspirations from Ultron.  Think you can kill him?  Wrong, he’s got about 20 different back-ups in servers you haven’t even considered looking into.  Simply put, it is not a question of if Ultron will destroy the Avengers, but when, as his constant upgrades and newer and more devious uses of technology will eventually make him unstoppable.

Marvel today announced the next cinematic voice of the “Robo-Pocalypse,” Emmy winner James Spader.

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.

Spader earned three Emmy Awards for his role as Alan Shore on “Boston Legal” and “The Practice,” and will return to television this fall in NBC’s highly anticipated series “The Blacklist.” Most recently Spader was seen in the critically-acclaimed film “Lincoln” directed by Steven Spielberg and has previously worked with a long list of accomplished film directors including David Cronenberg, Curtis Hansen, Sidney Lumet, Mike Nichols, Tim Robbins, Robert Rodriguez, Steven Soderbergh, and Oliver Stone.  David Mamet also directed Spader in the Broadway play Race.

“Avengers: Age of Ultron” will bring the Marvel Universe’s biggest heroes together again to face one of their biggest villains, with “Marvel’s The Avengers” director Joss Whedon returning to write and direct the sequel. “Marvel’s The Avengers” was released in 2012 and went on to earn $1.5 billion worldwide, making it the third-largest grossing movie of all time.

Filming for “Avengers 2” is set to begin next spring.
