Kevin Feige Warms Us Up for Spader's Ultron, Plus Marvel's 'Assembling a Universe' Teaser
First, can we just talk about how effing cool it’s going to be when Spader and RDJ are reunited? I mean, come on, who else is peeing their pants alongside me? (Too much drinking?)
Kevin Feige recently spoke about Spader as Ultron.
“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 be 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.”
Now I’m just drooling. It’s only a little embarrassing.
Don’t forget to set your DVRs tomorrow night; instead of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., ABC will air an hour-long special, Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe. The documentary will take a look at how the studio has brought its comics to film, and will include sneak peeks at Avengers: Age of Ultron, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Here’s the teaser:
