Joss Whedon Talks James Spader in The Avengers: Age of Ultron

James Spader Ultron

Writer/director Joss Whedon is now saying the James Spader is the perfect actor to voice Ultron for his next movie, The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Crave's CinemaBlend website published the quote Wednesday.

 "Spader was my first and only choice," the writer/director told the site. "He’s got that hypnotic voice that can be eerily calm and compelling, but he’s also very human and humorous. Ultron is not [Hal 9000]. Spader can play all of the levels. He’s the guy to break The Avengers into pieces. Muwahaha." – Joss Whedon

The Avengers: Age of Ultron opens May 1, 2015.
