Producer Kevin Feige says the Ultron depicter is not hired to do a robot voice as explaining, 'We'll be capturing his face and his body to create a whole performance.'
James Spader will be more than just a robot voice in the upcoming "Avengers: Age of Ultron". Producer Kevin Feige spills that "The Blacklist" actor who is tapped to portray the title villain will perform motion capture to bring the evil character to life.
"We did not hire James Spader to do a robot voice," Feige revealed to The Huffington Post in a new interview. "We'll be capturing his face and his body to create a whole performance. He's a very unique and incredibly exciting and unpredictable actor."
"Ultron in the comics is a robot, but what's cool about him in the comics -- and certainly how Joss Whedon is interpreting him for the movie -- is that he is much more than just a robot," he added. "That he's infused with much character. ... you can imagine James Spader will be very dynamic in his portrayal of this character."
The second installment of "The Avengers" is due May 1, 2015 in the United States. Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson will all be back to reprise their respective roles. Aaron Johnson is added to play Quicksilver and his "Godzilla" co-star Elizabeth Olsen will play his on-screen twin sister, Scarlet Witch.
