[[wysiwyg_imageupload:11366:]]Kevin Feige lets it be known that James Spader won't be just the voice of Ultron in The Avengers 2, much like Spader himself said a couple weeks ago.

Speaking with the Huffington Post, the Marvel Studios president and producer let it be known that Ultron will be more than a robot in the movie.

Well, I think it will be more than a voice role -- we'll be capturing his face and his body to create a whole performance. He's a very unique and incredibly exciting and unpredictable actor. And Ultron in the comics is a robot, but what's cool about him in the comics -- and certainly how Joss Whedon is interpreting him for the movie -- is that he is much more than just a robot. That he's infused withmuch character. And I don't want to say too much, but you can imagine James Spader will be very dynamic in his portrayal of this character.

James Spader previously said he went through "very extensive photographs, head scans, body scans and all kinds of things in preparation for figuring out how the hell I’m gonna fit in this Ultron character!"

Spader currently stars in the #1 hit series on NBC with The Blacklist.

The Avengers 2 has a May 1, 2015 release date directed by Joss Whedon and starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Scarlett Johansson.
