    as wrong as it is, i think it might actually be scary to see Ultron do his best tween impersonation. just imagine him sparkling in a classroom somewhere while trying to reign in his homicidal desires. now imagine the dead eyed girl that falls in love with him.

    This week's episode of The Blacklist had another display of just how stone cold Reddington can be when he has someone marked for death. Looking forward to Ultron to showing the same lack of mercy come next year.

    The more I think about it, the more The Blacklist becomes almost like a demo reel for him and Ultron, much like Manhunter was for Petersen and CSI.

    ^ That was the first thing that came to mind when I heard he was cast.

    that questionable rumor about the korean actress made it seem like Ultron will have human underlings. i wonder what that is about.

    That show is all about him. I was talking to my wife last night and saying how if he weren't in the show, I'd probably be board to death with it. The other characters are pretty blasé to be honest. Reddington is the freaking show.

    Spader's stone cold unemotional performance as Redd is really what is the glue that holds these disjointed stories together. Without him, without that side of the series, this is just another run of the mill serialized crime drama.

    That's exactly what Agents of SHIELD needs. The cast in that show is pretty bland. Even Coulson isn't enough to drive the show forward. The Blacklist is a bit like Shark in that James Woods also carried the show there, while the rest of the cast was quite run of the mill if not for him. Although I would say that Megan Boone and Harry Lennix are stronger characters than some of those in AOS.

    AOS needs an equivalent of James Spader in their cast - even if that character is also a villain helping them out and having fun at their expense.

    Maybe Bill Paxton can turn into a regular.

    just my opinion but i think they should have led with older actors like Paxton and Coulson; using them to usher in the younger agents. it would make them seem somehow more legitimate.

    Is Paxton going to be another brooding type like Melinda May, or will he be more charismatic? We don't need another wooden agent. We need someone who can steal the show like Spader.

    I've gotten the impression that he'll have a lot more personality than May. Wasn't there a glowing report of his delivery on his set?

    This is why I think he's so perfect for Ultron. I feel that Ultron needs to be a deeply serious character that is cold, calculating, & without mercy. Spader can do that easily, & I think we'll be in for a hell of a show come 2015.

    Not to get too ahead of myself but I can't wait to actually see some trailers & pics with the big guy in them.

    Spader is likely to kill *lots* of people. Lots.

    Does he have his ear things painted on the side (not really ears but those beam firing things)? He looks like he's missing something without them.

    I wonder how strong Ultron will be. Strong enough to trade blows with Hulk and Thor?

    They are filming in Johannesburg, leading to speculation it will be "Wakanda" meaning Ultron could be made from vibranium, making suitable to trade blows with Thor.

    I'm not sure about Wakanda. Jo-Burg is definitely not the kind of place i'd imagine to stand in for Wakanda.

    But yea i imagine Ultron will be made out of the same metal as Cap's shield. I hope so anyway.
