Straight from the mouth of Marvel, Boston Legal and The Practice’s James Spader will play world-destroying villain Ultron in the forthcoming Avengers sequel, which now has a May 1, 2015 release date. And you thought he was unlikable in The Office.
Although few details are known past this, we know he’ll be joined by Joss Whedon as writer/director, as well as the all-star ensemble of superheroes from the first film. Spader’s last big-screen appearance was for Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln.
