James Spader Joins The Cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron

Since the announcement from Marvel studios confirming The Avengers are to set to reassemble in 2015, the internet has flooded with rumors and debate. As much fun as it is to create and debate over the story,casting and direction, fans anxiously await for more official news to back up their theories.

One of the most exciting events at this years San Diego Comic-Con was not only Marvel announcing the official title and release date,but confirming addition of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. And the best part was director Joss Whedon actually taking the stage to unveil teaser footage of the film! The scene shown depicts an Iron Man suit transforming into the villainous robot Ultron, becoming one of Earths’ Mightiest greatest foes. Marvel has now confirmed the infamous villain will be voiced by James Spader, well known from the latter seasons of The Office, the original cult favorite Stargate film, and most recently Steven Spielberg’s Oscar nominated film, Lincoln.

Although there has been a lot of talk surrounding the casting of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. James Spader is actually only the second actor officially attached to the project, following Robert Downey Jr.

Expect many more announcements to follow, as we approach the release of Thor: The Dark World. The next installment of Marvel’s “Phase 2” movie universe will be hiiting the theaters this fall.
