As we still sit here and try to figure out this “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” trailer and all of it’s goodness, Collider is helping us piece together the puzzle little-by-little with some extra inside scoops on the upcoming film. Collider has sat down with Iron Man, Thor, Hawkeye, and Hulk. Now, the luckiest man in the Marvel fan world is sitting down with Captain America’s Chris Evans.
Chris Evans gives Collider some info about the Avengers’ foe Ultron, played by James Spade, and why he isn’t your typical bad guy:
Collider: Obviously a big part of this film is going to be Ultron. I’m curious if you can talk a bit about what he presents as a villain to the group and also what’s it like working with Spader?
EVANS: “Spader. God, Spader. So good. Well, I mean this thing about Joss. It’s not just about the power of the villain or his shiny light or his ability. It’s kind of the mentality of the villain. It’s really, Joss. He’s a very clever writer…” “There’s, you know, there’s an ideology behind Ultron that makes him more unique than just a bad guy. He doesn’t wanna just kill the Avengers. He doesn’t wanna just destroy the world. He has these monologues and these beautiful speeches that kind of embody a certain mentality about what’s wrong with humanity. It represents something deeper than just “I’m evil and I don’t like the good guys.” So it’s hopefully things like that. That’s what makes you care a little bit more about the story than just, “I’m an evil bad guy.”
So, it seems like Ultron is going to be one of those likeable bad guys like the Joker in “The Dark Knight”. Everybody loves a good villain. Only a couple more months, guys!
