Hey MARVEL fans! We've got exclusive news from our favorite MARVEL guy himself, Kevin Feige! Feige talks about the current stages of [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](movie:293035), James Spader, and what to look forward to in the movie. Also on March 18, 2014 MARVEL will air MARVEL STUDIOS: ASSEMBLING A UNIVERSE on ABC in place of MARVEL’s [Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.](series:722469) Feige talks about what to expect from the 1 hour special and clarifies that the news of The Avengers: Age of Ultron will have a special sneak peek in the special is entirely true!

First, of The Avengers: Age of Ultron and James Spader, Feige said…

“Introducing the new characters is going to be a lot of fun for the movie. That ever-changing roster is very important in the Avengers comics, and so how do we start to play with that [on the big screen]? Also our bad guy is great. I think people are going to be very, very excited to see what we’re doing with the voice that Joss [Whedon] is bringing to life with James Spader for Ultron. We love Ultron from the comics, and have always loved Ultron, and at no point do we want him to just be a robot. We want him to have an extreme personality and attitude, and James Spader is doing an unbelievable job. Again, for us it’s always about subverting expectations. Whenever you think you know what’s coming next, we surprise people or deliver it in a slightly unexpected way. And Spader is doing that with Mr. Ultron.”

Then, about The Avengers: Age of Ultron sneak peek in MARVEL STUDIOS: ASSEMBLING A UNIVERSE, Feige said…

“They’re advertising it as a first look, and that is an honest statement. We don’t start filming for another week and a half, so you’re not going to have a lot of first-unit footage because it doesn’t exist yet. But you certainly get more than just a peek at some of the new fun things we have in store.”
