Plus Scarlett Johansson adds her thoughts on the sequel...
James Spader has had interviews with both The Inquirer and The Independent in which he was promoting his new NBC series The Blacklist. He was asked about playing Ultron in The Avengers: Age of Ultron in both.
He told The Inquirer: "I have spoken to Joss Whedon about it. And yes, actually, just this weekend I went in for them to take 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!"
He later told The Independent: "I think it'll be a lot of fun and it's incredibly nostalgic for me. When I was a kid my best friend had trunks of comics and I didn't have any so I used to love going for sleepovers at his house. Also I have three sons and two of them have a great interest in comics so they're excited I'm playing the role."
Meanwhile, Scarlett Johansson provided an update on the film when she was interviewed by Darren Aronofsky for Interview magazine. She said: "We'll be shooting that in January. I think we're taking it to the streets this time, I think we're going overseas."
