James Spader was hired for more than just a robot voice according to Kevin Feige

When we heard that James Spader was voicing Ultron for THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, there was a little debate on whether he would simply offer up his vocal talents or get in on some mo-cap. Speaking with Huffington Post, Kevin Feige has confirmed that Spader is more than just a voice.

HuffPo: You hired James Spader to play Ultron in the next "Avengers" movie, what kind of voice were you looking for?

Kevin Feige: Well, I think it will be more than a voice role -- we'll be capturing his face and his body to create a whole performance. He's a very unique and incredibly exciting and unpredictable actor. 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 this character.

HP: So he won't be doing a robot voice, I assume.

KF: [Laughs] We did not hire James Spader to do a robot voice.

That settles that…to an extent. This is interesting because Feige talks it up like there's more to it than just mo-cap. Unless he's simply trying to get more minds spinning on the topic. "Will there be a face under that adamantium?" Eh, I would think not but I could be surprised.

This aside, I hope they keep the JARVIS idea.

Hopefully this means some full front Spader/Ultron nudity.

Spader will do great in this role. He brings his years of experience just like how Robert Redford is going to bring it for Winter Soldier

I assume Spader would provide the acting and the voice of Ultron.

He's apparently doing really well on the Black List. Very entertainingly smug.

hmm...

i wonder if ultron will be kind of a mix with vision...as they already changed ultron to be made by stark. I'm wondering if Jarvis will go rogue and essentially be "ultron" and then he creates the android Ultron to host his A.I and that is what we are calling Ultron but he will be closer to vision in essence.

I really like the Jarvis idea and would have loved to have seen that storyline since it would hit close to home with Tony.

But I'm really looking forward to seeing Spader chew scenery as Ultron.

Glad to read his talents won't be wasted

Spader's voice is entrancing, it's good to see that won't be hidden under sound editing like Hugo Weaving's voice in Transformers.
