Ultron will be played by the Emmy Award-winning actor, James Spader


At SDCC we learned that Ultron will be the major villain in the sequel to The Avengers. Marvel also informed us that Tony Stark creates him rather than Hank Pym. What we didn't know was who would be portraying the robotic villain...until now.





Marvel announced Ultron will be played by the Emmy Award-winning actor, James Spader. Spader has earned three Emmy Awards for Boston Legal and The Practice. Spader was also recently seen in Steven Spielberg's Lincoln as well as TV's The Office.


No other information on how he will portray the villain, whether it'll just be voice work and CG or someone in costume.

Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in theaters on May 1, 2015.
