Avengers Age of Ultron: James Spader Cast as Ultron!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

In a stroke of casting brilliance that even we at Movie Fanatic didn’t see coming, James Spader has been cast as the villain Ultron in Avengers: Age of Ultron! The star will certainly be a formidable foe to follow Loki’s evil turn in The Avengers. Spader, most recently seen onscreen in Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln (for which he received Oscar buzz, but alas no nomination), is no stranger to sci-fi epics. He was Dr. Daniel Jackson in the Stargate movie.
