Just the other day I was saying out loud to myself, “You know who would make the perfect Ultron in The Avengers: Age of Ultron? Someone who’s been in a movie where people get in car accidents and then have sex with the wounds caused by said car accident.” Not even five seconds later, Stan Lee, right hand to God, goes, “Let me make a phone call,” and what do we have here? It’s an official statement:

James Spader will face off against Earth’s Mightiest Heroes as the villain in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the sequel to 2012’s record-breaking “Marvel’s The Avengers.” The Emmy Award-winning actor will play Ultron in the Avengers’ much anticipated return to the big screen from writer/director Joss Whedon. The film comes to theaters on May 1, 2015.

So remember in Less Than Zero when James Spader is Robert Downey Jr.‘s drug dealer? I’m going to pretend this is a really elaborate sequel to that, and there’s nothing Joss Whedon can do to stop me. Everyone will be like, “Yes! This is incredible summer action!” and I’ll be the guy wondering why Jami Gertz isn’t Black Widow. She works out.

    He should totally play it like he did Robert California in the Office.

  2. I think a post got mixed up in the internet tubes and ended up on the superficial rather than geekologie.

  3. Still almost two years away. Is there anyway this movie could possibly live up to expectations? I’m still going to go see it five times when it comes out, but man, how can it not be a little bit of a letdown by the time it gets here?

    Apparently the longterm side effects of Stargate travel is weight gain, ref: Richard Dean Anderson and Kurt Russell. Spader also has a raging case of Hipsterosis.
