Twitter is Enraged With James Spader Casting As Villain in The Avengers 2


Just kidding. Marvel knows what they are doing, Twitter is fine. I won’t compare the weight of casting Batman versus a villain like Ultron since he’s not nearly as popular. However, if we were to compare the level of douchiness of Ben Affleck, Marvel would have to cast Jay Leno to be the voice of Ultron. OK, that might be a little too far. It’d be on par with casting Drake as Batman. There we go. Now to be fair, I don’t know any of these people personally, but come on, James Spader is way cooler than Ben Affleck and you know it.

I mean, anybody who declare themselves the fucking Lizard King is all right by me.

To be perfectly honest, I had no idea who Ultron was before reading this Marvel Wiki thing. Apparently, Ultron is a robot with artificial intelligence created by Hank Pym, another member of the Avengers. Hank Pym is Ant-man, the main character of the movie that will be directed by Edgar Wright. Ant-man will be released on November 6th, 2015, right after The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
