24 October 2014 1:49 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

While Hydra may have spoiled Marvel's plans to premiere the "Avengers: Age of Ultron" teaser on next week's episode of "Agents of Shield," the ABC series is promising something more to entice viewers. ABC and Marvel have revealed that more new "Ultron" footage will be unveiled during the october 28 episode of the series,   Details are scare, but "Shield" viewers are being promised an "exclusive piece from Marvel's 'Avengers: Age of Ultron,'" which could be just about anything.   The episode will also debut co-star Adrianne Palicki's full Mockingbird get-up.  The teaser for the Joss Whedon-directed "Ultron" was leaked earlier this week, with Marvel responding humorously by blaming the fictional terrorist group Hydra. Once it was officially released, the clip went on to earn a staggering 34.3 million global views in 24 hours.  "Ultron" features returning stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo and Samuel L. Jackson, »

Avengers: Age Of Ultron Concept Art Reveals James Spader’s Ultimate Form

24 October 2014 9:07 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

After the unexpected trailer release this week, we sort of got the idea of what Avengers: Age of Ultron would look like.  But what we didn't get was a super clear image of Ultron's final design in the film (most of the footage of him appears to center on his incomplete form).  But now some concept art has hit that rectifies that issue.  In the film, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) reunite to stop Ultron (James Spader) “from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.” Elizabeth OlsenAaron Taylor-JohnsonPaul BettanyDon CheadleAndy Serkis, and Samuel L. Jackson also star in the sequel directed by Joss Whedon.  Avengers: Age of Ultron opens May 1, 2015.  Check out the concept art after the jump. »

James Spader talks about playing Ultron in Avengers: Age of Ultron

23 October 2014 11:35 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As you’re no doubt aware, the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron leaked ahead of its planned reveal during next week’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., with Marvel Studios subsequently releasing the trailer officially. In the trailer we got our first look at the villain Ultron in action, along with his chilling voice, and now actor James Spader has spoken to Total Film about the menacing AI bad guy…

“There’s a humerous aspect to him, which is something that drew me in from the very first conversation I had with Joss [Whedon],” Spader revealed. “In many ways he’s a child, this character, 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.”

Spader was asked about comparing the character of Ultron to Raymond Reddington »

Ultron's Look Revealed in 'Avengers 2' Art

23 October 2014 6:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just one day after Marvel released the first official trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron, following an online leak, the first promo art featuring a full look at the villainous Ultron (James Spader) has surfaced.

The image comes from Twitter user Galliettd, who found the art at Vk.com, although it hasn't been confirmed if this is official artwork or not. While it's certainly possible that this image isn't the real deal, Cbm notes that it is likely authentic, since it would be difficult to create such a high quality image between the time the trailer debuted last night, which gave us our first look at Ultron, and now.

The official synopsis released last month revealed that Ultron is "hell-bent on human extinction," a point which is made abundantly clear in yesterday's footage. Stay tuned for more details regarding Avengers: Age of Ultron as we get closer and closer to the May 1, 2015 release date. »

James Spader Says Avengers: Age Of Ultron’s Titular Villain Is a “Powerful, Smart Child” and “Batshit Crazy”

23 October 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Yesterday, fans finally got a look at Avengers: Age of Ultron (click here for screengrabs from the trailer), which was dominated by James Spader voicing the eponymous, evil robot.  The highly-anticipated sequel looks much darker than the first, and obviously a large part of that comes from an intimidating villain.  If audiences are going to buy Ultron as a true threat—and, let's face it, someone as charismatic as Loki—then it's going to come from Spader. Thankfully, the actor has a strong understanding of how he sees the character, and how he'll bring the Avengers' foe to life.  Hit the jump for what Spader had to say.  The film also stars Robert Downey Jr.Chris EvansChris HemsworthMark RuffaloScarlett JohanssonJeremy RennerElizabeth OlsenPaul Bettany, and Aaron Taylor-JohnsonAvengers: Age of Ultron opens May 1, 2015.

'Avengers 2': James Spader Calls Ultron a Crazy Psychopath

23 October 2014 9:27 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After an early leak of the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer last night, Marvel responded by releasing the official version a few hours later, a full six days before it was supposed to debut during ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Fans got their first look at the villainous Ultron (voiced by James Spader), whose "No strings" line quickly became the talk of the Internet.

James Spader recently spoke about voicing the iconic villain with Total Film, where he revealed that there is a humorous aspect to the character, although we don't see much of his funny side in the trailer.

"There's a humorous aspect to him, which is something that drew me in from the very first conversation I had with Joss [Whedon]. In many ways he's a child, this character, because he's a brand new being who's just come to be. And yet, through artificial intelligence, »

James Spader Says Avengers: Age Of Ultron’s Titular Supervillain Is “Batsh*t Crazy”

23 October 2014 8:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Unless you’ve been living under a rock or some remote location on planet Earth with no connection to the Internet, you’ll know that the surprisingly extensive teaser trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron found its way online yesterday — a leak that Marvel quickly attributed to arch nemesis Hydra, but we don’t like to point the finger of blame.

Either way, it was an enticing tease for what is, by now, one of the biggest and most-anticipated films of 2015. Notable money shots included glimpses of Tony Stark’s Bruce Banner-defying Hulkbuster, along with new looks at Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s sibling duo, Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver.

But one facet of the footage that had fans reeling long after the fade to black was James Spader’s take on Ultron — the film’s overarching, cybernetic villain that seems to have cracked the technological singularity. Without doubt, the »
