And don’t miss the big news about James Spader being cast as Ultron in Avengers 2. Brilliant casting, IMHO. I love Spader. He’s too chubby to wear a robot suit, but I certainly hope they do some kind of motion capture for his mannerisms. Not only is his voice intimidating, but much of his acting comes from his little physical quirks.
