For more on the interview be sure to pick up the new Total Film issue today.
Avengers: Age Of Ultron star James Spader has spoken exclusively with Total Film about playing Marvel uber villain Ultron.
“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.”
Currently starring as a former government agent, turned criminal, in Sky Living show The Blacklist, Spader drew fundamental differences between the morally ambivalent Red and the Avengers big bad. “Ultron takes abrupt turns in scenes.” He explained. “Red isn’t pyschopathic but Ultron is. Yes, he is psychopathic. He’s really batshit crazy!”
