NEWS: James Spader to Play Ultron in Avengers 2

Well, this is...interesting. While we're all still reeling from the (good or bad) news that Ben Affleck will be our next Batman, we find out that James Spader is going to play Ultron in Avengers 2. I won't lie to you and claim that this makes perfect sense to me and that I totally saw this coming, because it doesn't and it didn't, but I trust Joss Whedon and his casting capabilities, for the most part, so I think it'll be okay.

James Spader has shown that he can do wry humor, with his stuff on Boston Legal and The Practice, so I'm guessing that he'll fit in well with the Whedon crowd. And don't try to pretend that the Marvel Movie Universe isn't the Whedon crowd. Puh-lease.

Also, I'm pretty stoked to see what Ben Affleck does with Batman. I have no doubt he'll be an awesome Bruce Wayne, but I'm curious how he'll turn out as the caped crusader himself. I always pegged him as more of a Nightwing kind of guy. At any rate, he is representing for Boston, so I give him love, and he is a crazy talented actor and director. I have faith. Though I am sad that we don't get to see Max Martini (Hercules Hansen in Pacific Rim) give it a try.

Idris Elba would have been cool too.
