Another hour, another update from Mr. Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige. When Movies.com recently asked him about the Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe documentary special, which airs on ABC at 8pm tomorrow, and how much of The Avengers: Age of Ultron will we get to see, the producer reassured that we're in for something special. “They're advertising it as a first look, and that is an honest statement,” he said. “We don't start filming for another week and a half, so you're not going to have a lot of first-unit footage because it doesn't exist yet. But you certainly get more than just a peek at some of the new fun things we have in store.” He adds, “Introducing the new characters is going to be a lot of fun for the movie. That ever-changing roster is very important in the Avengers comics, and so how do we start to play with that [on the screen]?”
Kevin Feige also seemed quite enthusiastic about The Avengers sequel's titular villain, Ultron, and what actor James Spader and writer/director Joss Whedon are doing with the sentient robot.
“Our bad guy is great,” he declared. “I think people are going to very, very excited to see what we're doing with the voice that Joss [Whedon] is bringing to life with James Spader for Ultron. We love Ultron from the comics, and have always loved Ultron, and at no point do we want him to just be a robot. We want him to have an extreme personality and attitude, and James Spader is doing an unbelievable job. Again, for us it's always about subverting expectations. Whenever you think you know what's coming next, we surprise people or deliver it in a slightly unexpected way. And Spader is doing that with Mr. Ultron.”
