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, he has an incredible capacity for knowledge. So he's a very powerful, smart child."
When asked to compare Ultron to his character Red Reddington on NBC's The Blacklist, the actor revealed that Ultron is just simply crazy.
"Ultron takes abrupt turns in scenes. Red isn't pyschopathic but Ultron is. Yes, he is psychopathic. He's really batshit crazy!"
The actor also spoke briefly about working with director Joss Whedon on Avengers: Age of Ultron.
"Besides being just a lovely person, his directions are very precise."
