    Straight from Marvel:

    Totally out of left field as usual. He certainly has the voice for it.

    He's got this great intonation, quite robotic in a way. Great casting.

    I guess we can kiss the "Jarvis is Ultron" theory goodbye. This is solid casting as per usual from Marvel. Since it's probably just a voice role, I wonder why they announced it so early?

    It's a great way to have him sound pretentious and intelligent without feeling like the played-out "British AI gone mad" angle.

    Well for the record, Jarvis could just change his voice module guys.

    Hopefully, the next announcement will be that Spader has been cast as Hank Pym in Edgar Wright's "Ant-Man".

    JARVIS himself was never gonna be Ultron.

    However, Ultron was always gonna be created from the same technology.

    Yep, this is a great choice. Spader is excellent.

    I've found some of the Internet comments elsewhere where people have said they don't know who he is to be quite sad.

    my current theory is that when JARVIS hacked SHIELD, they countere lifted the specs for what makes him tick.

    And Alexander Pierce proceeded to create Ultron to take the place of the "failed" Avengers Initiative.

    Agreed. I'm a long time fan of Spader and I'm shocked to see that more people don't know him.

    Especially after The Office.

    I had not heard of the man before the casting announcement, or seen any of his programs. However, I trust Marvel's judgment in the matter: they have had a flawless record with the MCU.

    This is gonna be insane. I respect all these out of the realm casting choices Marvel has been doing. Frankly it is kinda sad that a bunch of internet nerds, probably young ones at that, don't know James Spader.
