James Spader rocks. Any Spader involvement in anything can only be a good thing. Though I hope he appears onscreen as oppose to merely a voice part.

Aye, Spader can give more interesting performances in his sleep than Affleck can muster on all but his best days. And while I'd also love to see Alan Shore onscreen in the MCU, he has grown rather portly for a robot, no?

This movie will be a reunion for Spader and RDJ. They already were in the "Less Than Zero" movie together which also had Spader's character trying to make RDJ's life miserable.

He got himself in amazing shape for Supernova, though that was 13 years or so ago. Whether he'd still be willing or able to do so for a film now (if this one called for it, that is), I don't know.

Lest we forget, LTZ was in itself a reunion, several years after Spader and Downey fought idiotic bad guys in the all-time classic TUFF TURF. Spader was top-billed then but shared the majority of his screen-time with Kim Richards.

Will Shatner play Kang in AVENGERS III???? Either way, whoever thought of Spader as Ultron is a demented genius.

A little reunion with him and Robert Downey Jr. They were in an 80's movie where they were yuppies who took drugs

I know it isn't, but some people (here and on Facebook) are none to please about the casting. I don't really care one way or the other.

Happy to hear about the Spader casting. I'm not very familiar with Ultron so I can't judge him in relation to the comics, but he's a good actor so that's enough for me.

And then, when Ultron appears on Agents of SHIELD, they can get Michael Shanks to take over the role!
