I prefer Spader to just be voicing the character and not showing his face. As a voice, he seems like a decent choice. As the actor as a whole playing Ultron, not so much.

Spader is doing the voice. I'm not a betting man at all (and I don't have the money to spare) but if I was THAT'S what I'd be willing to wager.

It's funny but, while I think he's great for the "coldly logical" side of Ultron, paradoxically, I also think he'll be able to give Ultron a real personality.

I think that, as expensive as it was, Joss seemed to take to motion capture, indeed all the digital techniques he used in A1. So I think he will use Mocap for Spader in some scenes, if just to have the actor around for all the little things on set that enhance a performance. Improvisation, happy accidents ect.

I'm sure he'll have them build a physical Ultron for them to react to onset, and maybe even a couple animatronic scenes where he may be physically touching some of the characters.

They did it with the Hulk, so it isn't unreasonable to assume that they'll do the same for Ultron.

I remember James Spader from Boston Legal! He gave a good performance in that show!

The announcement did not "obviously lead" to that question for everyone who read it, just for a select few. Paul Bettany also plays JARVIS, and yet never appears in human form. Vin Diesel will play Groot through voice and motion capture, but you can be damn well sure we won't see his bullet head on screen. The same is more than likely true of Ultron, as most people have obviously concluded.

Ultron wants to look like Spader so he can hang with Bill Shatner. Duh!!

Yay spader! It's very different casting but I love it! What with Affleck as batman and Olsen possibly playing wanda I was getting really worried that I was getting too old and grumpy and I would end up as one of those fanboys who hates everything but I love this so I am glad!

But do you want Ultron to have "personality?" Really......What makes him a threat is his lack of it.

The most interesting thing I found about Ultron was that he, at times, almost has a personality, and displays emotions, he becomes more and more human, in terms of his "personality. Ultron is not just "a cold robot"

Well, the "personality" could be cold, calculating, sadistic... I think Ultron could have a personality, obviously he wouldn't be a warm cuddly teddy bear though.

I think we're all jumping the gun though about what Ultron will look like. With the evidence presented so far, Ultron will look like iconic Ultron. That's what was shown in the SDCC teaser. We have no reason to believe so far that they're changing the look so radically.

Plus, doesn't Marvel's track record with keeping true to their characters' iconography hold that Ultron won't change dramatically from the comics, save for his origin?

Now, I know someone mentioned upthread that Joss may be giving us a "weaker" version of Ultron? Where did he say that? I haven't seen him say anything like that, just that Ultron will be ever evolving and adapting, which he should be, right?

Oh, this! Like, I don't want Ultron to become a total woobie or anything, but I could definitely see where Joss can give him layers. Which would become even more distinct if they bring in Vision to the mix.

I've been so impartial to Vision being included in the MCU, but I'm getting intrigued with the idea of his inclusion as the diametrical opposite of Ultron.

Mr. Dent has a valid concern........Spader could get "face time" by making Ultron more like Terminator.......having pseudo flesh that get's ripped off as the battle rages....
