James Spader has been cast as the voice of Ultron, the main of the next Avengers film. This casting has debunked the rumor that Tony Stark's computer aid, JARVIS, will turn evil and become Ultron since Paul Bettany voices that character, however, something similar is likely to happen though. As for Spader, I have only seen him in the old Stargate film, which I enjoyed quite a lot since I am a fan of the TV series spinoff. On other Avengers casting news, Elizabeth Olsen is said to be cast as the Scarlet Witch, daughter of Magneto from the X-Men franchise, however the movie cannot legally mention that fact or that she is even a mutant since Fox owns X-Men. In the comics, Scarlet Witch and her brother Quicksilver became part of the Avengers after leaving their father. Joss Whedon has said that Saoirse Ronan was Whedon's original choice for the role and she turned down the role. She probably would have been an excellent for the role since the character is Eastern European and Ronan has the perfect accent for the role. Hopefully, Olsen will be able to capture the correct accent and the character for the role since she is American. What are your thoughts on these casting picks?
