Earlier this summer, we learned how James Spader’s titular villain would be introduced in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ thanks to a spread in Entertainment Weekly. The magazine described the scene where the angry AI unleashes hell upon Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and left fans beyond excited for the film’s release next year. Then, as noted in the official synopsis for the movie that was recently released, it was confirmed that Joss Whedon would be departing from the comic mythos a little bit when it comes to Ultron in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now, the actor behind the raging robot teases us with a few tidbits about how he’ll look once the final cut makes it to a theater near you.
In a recent interview on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’, Spader revealed Ultron may be the biggest character that he’s ever played… Literally! According to the star of ‘The Blacklist’, the classic Avengers villain is set to stand at a whopping eight feet tall in the highly anticipated sequel to ‘The Avengers’. After the brief discussion of the Phase Two finale, he goes on to say that San Diego Comic-Con is the craziest place that he’s ever been, especially because it’s like “three days of foreplay” without a climax. To hear everything that he had to say about his upcoming MCU appearance and Comic-Con, check out the video below:
