Joss Whedon on James Spader as Ultron
Joss Whedon has been chatting about the decision to cast James Spader as the lead antagonist in the Avengers sequel.
The casting of James Spader as Ultron in the sequel to The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron was received well for the most part, which is certainly justified given that Spader is a fine actor and Marvel has a rather decent track record when it comes to casting.
Joss Whedon has been chatting about the decision to cast Spader, here’s what he had to say. "Spader was my first and only choice. He's got that hypnotic voice that can be eerily calm and compelling, but he's also very human and humorous. Ultron is not Ha. Spader can play all of the levels. He's the guy to break The Avengers into pieces", Whedon said.
Sounds promising, obviously we’ll have to wait until the release of the film on the 1st May 2015 to judge the success of the casting fully. Mind you, it's not going out on a limb to say that we’ll have a trailer before then to indicate the look, sound and feel of Ultron.
