First Look of 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Villain and Its Army Shared


The robot, portrayed by James Spader, has the intelligence to rebuild himself into stronger and more fearsome physical forms.

The big bad foe in the highly-anticipated "Avengers: Age of Ultron" stays true to the comic book. The first look of Ultron is shared on the cover of Entertainment Weekly's 2014 San Diego Comic-Con issue, along with upgraded look of Iron Man and Captain America.

James Spader was chosen to play the robot villain through stop-motion technology. "He's a very unique and incredibly exciting and unpredictable actor," Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige said of Spader. "And 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. That he's infused with much character. And I don't want to say too much, but you can imagine James Spader will be very dynamic in his portrayal of the character."

Beside the villain and two of the superheroes, EW's cover also unveils Ultron-bots that look similar to their leader, only they are blue. Robert Downey Jr. spoke to the magazine how the villain will break the band of superheroes. "What you said about abdication is apt, but I think it's also about recognizing limitations," the "Iron Man" actor said. "The downside of self-sacrifice is that if you make it back, you've been out there on the spit and you've been turned a couple times and you feel a little burned and traumatized."

Ultron has the mission to eliminate human beings since he sees that Earth would be great without them. "Ultron sees the big picture and he goes, 'Okay, we need radical change, which will be violent and appalling, in order to make everything better'; he's not just going Muhaha, soon I'll rule!' " Whedon said, adding, "He's on a mission. He wants to save us."

"Avengers: Age of Ultron" hits U.S. theaters May 1, 2015. The Comic-Con panel will take place on Saturday, July 26 at Hall H.
