Avengers: Age of Ultron

EXCLUSIVE: 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Casts James Spader as the Film's Legendary Villain

The Emmy® Award-winning actor set to play Ultron in the 2015 blockbuster!

James Spader will face off against Earth's Mightiest Heroes as the villain in Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron," the sequel to 2012's record-breaking "Marvel's The Avengers." The Emmy Award-winning actor will play Ultron in the Avengers' much anticipated return to the big screen from writer/director Joss Whedon. The film comes to theaters on May 1, 2015.

Spader earned three Emmy Awards for his role as Alan Shore on "Boston Legal" and "The Practice," and will return to television this fall in NBC's highly anticipated series "The Blacklist." Most recently Spader was seen in the critically-acclaimed film "Lincoln" directed by Steven Spielberg and has previously worked with a long list of accomplished film directors including David Cronenberg, Curtis Hansen, Sidney Lumet, Mike Nichols, Tim Robbins, Robert Rodriguez, Steven Soderbergh, and Oliver Stone. David Mamet also directed Spader in the Broadway play Race.

"Avengers: Age of Ultron" will bring the Marvel Universe's biggest heroes together again to face one of their biggest villains, with "Marvel's The Avengers" director Joss Whedon returning to write and direct the sequel. "Marvel's The Avengers" was released in 2012 and went on to earn $1.5 billion worldwide, making it the third-largest grossing movie of all time.

Spader is represented by ICM Partners and his lawyer Melanie Cook at Ziffren Brittenham.

I have read that Ms. Marvel will be in this movie. I also read that the role hasn't been cast yet. When I look at Ms. Marvel ONLY 1 actress comes to mind, KALEY CUOCO!!!! She is Ms. Marvel. If Marvel or Disney think that ANYONE else would be better in that role, then THEY SHOULD FIRE EVERYONE in charge of hiring and production. Kaley has the PERFECT body dimensions for Ms. Marvel, not to mention she's blonde and ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!!! Lets go casting team, make the OBVIOUS CHOICE, get Kaley Cuoco FOR THIS ROLE!!!!!!
