James Spader reveals lead up to ‘Avengers Age of Ultron’ promotion, Comic-Con

While promoting season two of The Blacklist, James Spader recently made an appearance on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and talked about turning into the villain and promoting Avengers: Age of Ultron.

avengers age of ultron-poster SDCC“I’m Ultron, eight-foot robot,” the actor teased before moving on to talk about his experience at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.

“We finished the season of Blacklist, and two days later I got on a plane and flew to London to shoot the Avengers. And then right after that came back here to New York and flew immediately to Comic-Con. And then flew back from Comic-Con to start shooting the second season of Blacklist. But Comic-Con is the most insane…It is crazy. I mean life really can’t get strange enough for me, but I mean it’s the craziest place I have ever been.”

“Comic-Con it’s all anticipation. They’re not getting a performance in any way, shape or form. It’s a tease, because it’s all anticipatory. It’s like foreplay for hours and days. It’s three days of foreplay. But what you don’t realize, it’s not like at the end of the three days you get that, it’s going to happen. They’re anticipating an event that’s not going to happen for six months or a year.” 

Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo and Samuel L. Jackson will all be returning to reprise their roles from the first film. Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen will play Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron is set to release in theaters on May 1, 2015.
