As the 'Avengers 2' trailer leaked online last night about six days earlier than planned, we got our first look at Marvel's latest (and biggest) villain, Ultron, in action. Set the creepy tune of Pinocchio's "I've Got No Strings," we got to see a little bit of what Ultron is all about. And, fresh off that first look, James Spader - the voice and actor behind Ultron - has some words about his cinematic counterpart: "He's really batshit crazy!"

During Marvel Studio's big presentation at Comic-Con 2014, nearly the entire 'Avengers 2' cast came out on the Hall H stage to tease their next big battle and screen the first footage for the fans.

'The Avengers 2': James Spader's Ultron Will Break the Heroes Into Pieces, Says Whedon

Superhero movie casting is often controversial, inspiring much wailing and gnashing of teeth from fanboys, but you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who thinks that James Spader playing Ultron in 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' is a bad idea. The three-time Emmy award-winning star of 'Boston Legal' and 'The Practice' feels like the right fit for Marvel. He's also the exact kind of actor that writer/director Joss Whedon wanted in his movie.
