Kevin Feige talks James Spader’s Ultron

March 18th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Speaking with, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige had nothing but praise for Spader’s portrayal of the iconic villain Ultron.

He also did some teasing about line up changes to The Avengers going into the future:

“Introducing the new characters is going to be a lot of fun for the movie. That ever-changing roster is very important in the Avengers comics, and so how do we start to play with that [on the big screen]? Also our bad guy is great. I think people are going to very, very excited to see what we’re doing with the voice that Joss [Whedon] is bringing to life with James Spader for Ultron. We love Ultron from the comics, and have always loved Ultron, and at no point do we want him to just be a robot. We want him to have an extreme personality and attitude, and James Spader is doing an unbelievable job. Again, for us it’s always about subverting expectations. Whenever you think you know what’s coming next, we surprise people or deliver it in a slightly unexpected way. And Spader is doing that with Mr. Ultron.”

Feige also teased fans with what they could expect to see in tomorrow night’s special:

“They’re advertising it as a first look, and that is an honest statement,” he told us. “We don’t start filming for another week and a half, so you’re not going to have a lot of first-unit footage because it doesn’t exist yet. But you certainly get more than just a peek at some of the new fun things we have in store.”
