James Spader Is Ultron
That didn’t take long. Just over a month after the announcement of its official title at the 2013 Comic-Con in San Diego, the sequel to “The Avengers” – “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” – has James Spader playing the lead role of the robotic villain, Ultron. Spader is perhaps best known for his television role as Alan Shore in “Boston Legal”, a short stint in “The Office” or his new gig in “Blacklist” but his feature film credits include such notable hits as “Pretty in Pink”, “sex, lies and videotape” and “Crash”.
“The Avengers: Age of Ultron” is currently scheduled to be released on May 1, 2015.
