Marvel Studios has announced that screen legend James Spader has been cast as the villain in the insanely anticipated new film Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

Announced exclusively through Marvel’s official website, which is admittedly a bit unusual for the company, news broke early this morning that Spader will in fact be portraying Ultron in the upcoming sequel to The Avengers. The film comes to theaters on May 1, 2015.

For those unaware, Spader earned three Emmy Awards for his role as Alan Shore on Boston Legal and The Practice, and will return to television this fall in NBC’s highly anticipated series The Blacklist. Most recently Spader was seen in the critically-acclaimed film Lincoln directed by Steven Spielberg and has previously worked with a long list of accomplished film directors including David Cronenberg, Curtis Hansen, Sidney Lumet, Mike Nichols, Tim Robbins, Robert Rodriguez, Steven Soderbergh, and Oliver Stone. David Mamet also directed Spader in the Broadway play Race.

Additional details regarding the Avengers return to the silver screen are being kept under tight wraps. We’ll bring you more information on the film as soon as it is made available.
