James Spader reveals why his 'Avengers 2' character hates the Avengers

SDCC-VIDEO-AVENGERS-02.jpg

Now that we know who Ultron is, it’s time to get into his head a little bit.

James Spader came by the EW Hideout at Comic-Con along with his co-stars Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans to talk about the big bad of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Spader talked about the character’s motivations with a calm that unnerved Chris Evans—if Ultron’s voice is anything like Spader’s here, the robot that comes to destroy us all next summer will probably convince us all that his evil plot is good for us.

Watch the video and read a full transcript below.

EW: James Spader, you’re joining the franchise as the titular Ultron character, tell us a little bit about him. He seems like he’s a guy who may come into contention with the Avengers at some point.

James Spader: Yeah, I think he sees the Avengers as being part of a problem, a more comprehensive problem in the world. I don’t know, he sees the world from a very strange point of view because he’s brand new, he’s very young.  He’s been self-created during the first act of the film, and then he—he sees the world around him from a very biblical point of view. Because he’s been able to upload an enormous amount of intelligence and so on, and that’s also been fed into him as well.

So he’s immature, and yet has knowledge of comprehensive, broad history and precedent, and he has created in a very short period of time a rather skewed worldview. Which is certainly not unprecedented! He’s probably self-absorbed.

Chris Evans: It’s so great hearing James talk right now. I can just see Ultron and I get scared! [Laughs]

EW: Both of the Chris’s, you guys are coming off of your own movies now. Chris Hemsworth, Thor: The Dark World ended with Thor deciding he’s going all-Earth, all the time now. Where’s Thor at when we find him in Avengers 2?

Chris Hemsworth: He’s here, part of the team, where we left him in Thor 2. The first film, the first Avengers, was all of this coming together. Now it’s them operating as a team and trying to function and keep it going.

EW: Now are they sending Jane to an island again?

CE: [Laughs] You ever wonder how they figure out ‘Well why didn’t you call Thor?’ He’s busy!

CH: [Laughs] That’s the problem in every film we have! There’s a massive battle, the world’s at stake—but where’s Captain America and Iron Man and The Hulk when Thor’s on it?

CE: Don’t pick up the cell phone!

EW: I think it’s implied they’re kind of feuding at that point. Chris Evans, Captain America: The Winter Soldier—Captain America went through a lot in that film, and I believe he has a new costume in this one.

CE: [singing] Yeah, they always do the new costumes. It’s too bad, because I really liked the old costume.

EW: Where is he at now, in terms of his development? Winter Soldier had a lot of revelations for him.

CE: Well he’s a guy who—he’s a soldier. So he’s born into a world of orders and structure, and he likes being kind of a cog. So once S.H.I.E.L.D was kind of destroyed, he’s looking for structure. And now that the Avengers don’t really report to anyone, they report to each other, it’s a different dynamic for him and he’s trying to figure out where he fits in that.

EW: Will there ever be a leader of the Avengers?

CE: Well you’ll just have to wait and see the movie!

JS: Everything you’re talking about is exactly the problem that Ultron perceives, these are all the issues he has [laughs]

EW: So you’re saying Ultron is the hero of the movie?

JS: I certainly play it that way!

 

Iron Man and Captain America make a wager in new 'Heroes United' movie

While the Avengers won’t return as a unit until next summer’s Age of Ultron, Marvel has had fun pairing them up in the animated world. Last year, Iron Man and Hulk reluctantly joined forces for the first Heroes United movie; this time, Tony Stark welcomes Captain America to the fray as they battle Red Skull and his Hydra henchman, Taskmasker.

As demonstrated in The Avengers, Steve Rogers and Tony aren’t exactly always on the same page. Their drastically different personalities often mean they get on each other’s nerves. In this clip from Iron Man & Captain America: Heroes United, the two friends playfully spar with all their best weapons and moves, then decide to make it interesting by agreeing to a little wager.

Box office preview: How high will Marvel's 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' fly?

Comic book season is upon us, and there’s no turning back.

Disney and Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the (lucky?) first one out of the gates. As has become standard for Marvel releases, the question is not whether it will open at No. 1 (there aren’t even any other movies opening wide this weekend!), but just where it will fall on the golden brand’s sliding scale of successes and super-successes. Modern Marvel cinematic universe adaptations have opened anywhere from $65 million (Captain America: The First Avenger) to $207 million (The Avengers).

Here’s how things might play out, and let us know your predictions in the comments. READ FULL STORY

Inside Marvel's Top Secret Weapons Warehouse -- VIDEO

Marvel’s secret weapon is the man who makes them: propmaster Russell Bobbitt.

Now at work on his sixth film for Marvel Studios, Bobbitt builds the objects that save (and sometimes threaten to destroy) the world: Thor’s hammer. Iron Man’s glowing ARC reactor. Captain America’s vibranium shield.

Among the countless objects he supplied for this Friday’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Bobbitt crafted 46 different shields of various levels of flexibility and style, constantly refreshing and repainting those that were damaged in stunts or fight scenes throughout the three-month production. He has previously worked on all three Iron Man films, Thor, and is currently assembling gear for Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man.

'Winter Soldier' TV teaser: Is this the first superhero-action-romance? -- VIDEO

captain-america-05.jpg

The newest TV teaser for Captain America: The Winter Soldier has a pounding score that evokes the proper amount of action and danger for an Avengers film. But a different version might be just as suited to a romantic ballad, judging by the way the clip underlines the increasingly warm and fuzzy relationship between Cap (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). Plenty of heartfelt gazes. Plenty of teamwork building. Plenty of courageous tit-for-tat heroics.

The Winter Soldier unofficially kicks off the summer blockbuster season next week, opening in the U.S. on April 4. It’s already off to a rousing start abroad, bringing in $75.2 million during its opening weekend in 32 foreign territories.

Joss Whedon is currently hard at work on Avengers: Age of Ultron, the superteam super-sequel that promises to turn 2015 into the most superpowered summer since 2014.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters almost exactly one month from now, but Marvel Studios has just released a long clip from the Avengers spinoff-sequel featuring the hero.
