Firstly, in an interview with Movies.com, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige was quizzed on director Joss Whedon and star James Spader’s take on the villainous Ultron in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, and he revealed that the star of The Blacklist is bringing something very unique to the role of the evil android.
“Our bad guy is great. I think people are going to very, very excited to see what we’re doing with the voice that Joss [Whedon] is bringing to life with James Spader for Ultron. We love Ultron from the comics, and have always loved Ultron, and at no point do we want him to just be a robot. We want him to have an extreme personality and attitude, and James Spader is doing an unbelievable job. Again, for us it’s always about subverting expectations. Whenever you think you know what’s coming next, we surprise people or deliver it in a slightly unexpected way. And Spader is doing that with Mr. Ultron.”
Arrow continues to delve deeper and deeper into the comic book mythology, and below we’re introduced to the Suicide Squad in a new clip from The CW series as well as some stills featuring the Birds of Prey.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. meanwhile isn’t having such an easy time of it, as their take on Deathlok (played by J. August Richards) bears little resemblance to his comic book counterpart and his armour has a low budget appearance which wouldn’t have looked out of place in early episodes of Smallville!
To wrap up, here are a selection of stills from upcoming superhero movie sequels, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
