James Spader Says Avengers Villain Ultron is “Batshit Crazy”

The Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer has been circulating the internet for a small while now, and for those who have watched the trailer several times just to hear James Spader’s Ultron taunt our favorite gang of heroes, we’ve come to a conclusion, just as Spader himself has:

Ultron takes abrupt turns in scenes. Red [Reddington] isn’t pyschopathic but Ultron is. Yes, he is psychopathic. He’s really batshit crazy! In many ways he’s a child, because he’s a brand new being who’s just come to be. And yet, through artificial intelligence, he has an incredible capacity for knowledge. So he’s a very powerful, smart child.

Ultron appears to be a more sinister, dangerous, and dark villain compared to the likes of what we’ve seen so far in the Marvel films. Will we see this trend follow through on future movies? It really could make for more meaningful drama and connections to characters.
