Even Sitting Beside Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans, James Spader Commands the 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Comic-Con Panel

By Cindy Davis | Trade News | July 26, 2014 | Comments ()


Let’s just get this straight: James Spader is the shit. And yes, Chris Evans (that ass) and Chris Hemsworth are nothing to sneeze at, but even Evans was a bit in awe of The Spader during the Avengers: Age of Ultron Comic-Con panel. Spader talked Ultron’s state of mind, basically comparing him to a nerdy teenager with a lot of knowledge…yet lack of the maturity to (perhaps) know what to do with all that knowledge. And from Evans’ and Hemsworth’s slightly vague descriptions…Note: If you’re a total spoilerphobe, VERY MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD (Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Avengers: Age of Ultron); get out now…since S.H.I.E.L.D. has essentially been dissolved, the Avengers are sort of like individual contractors (without a leader), leaving an opening for a “guy” like Ultron. Check it:

Knowing the kind of characters Spader loves to play, I am positively giddy to see what he does with Ultron. Whatever kind of havoc he’s about to wreak, I know he’ll do it with the utmost enthusiasm and glee. There’s just nothing better than Spader as a bad boy.

MTV and ComicBook.com have descriptions of the new footage screened for those lucky enough to have attended.

Avengers: Age of Ultron won’t be in theaters until NEXT MAY. Ugh.

    Avengers 2 sounds like it could be the first 3 billion dollar movie.

  • I want to be the meat in that Chris Sandwich.

  • Stephen Nein (Idiosynchronic)

    Wow, who brought the not-disgusting, reasonably good-looking Spader back out of the closet?

  • mzblackwidow

    so excited ... LOVE the man !

  • Ginger McFlea

    I have no interest whatsoever in the Avengers but even I read all this because of Spader. Can we re-do the Pajiba Top Ten to just feature over-50s? It might be just him and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and I'd be quite happy with that.

  • Buck off

    I'm laying out my vote for Alan Rickman's voice.

  • BWeaves

    Oh, it would be way more than those two.

  • foolsage


    I'd have been happy with Spader's casting based on that movie alone (because of how he took charge of situations regardless of others' views). Granted, he has a lot of other good works on his resume.

  • vodka

    Well yeah. He's James fucking Spader.

  • "...comparing him to a nerdy teenager with a lot of knowledge…yet lack of the maturity to (perhaps) know what to do with all that knowledge."

    So he's a redditor?

  • cox

    god. i know its not the point at all, but this just reminded me the blacklist and i got all sad and angry all over again. he is the best and he deserves better than working with THE FUCKING BLANDEST CHARISMA BLACK HOLE EVER. him and CapAss seem like a match made in heaven though.
