Ultron Is 100% Less Menacing/More Entertaining as James Spader in a Motion Capture Getup

I'm gonna show you something silly.

You may have noticed that Ultron was a bit taller than James Spader, which made his motion capture and interacting with the cast a bit of a challenge.

It’s not quite Benedict Cumberbatch writhing around on the floor and pretending to be a dragon (few things are), but the idea of the entire production of Avengers: Age of Ultron participating in a game of “how well can you avoid eye contact with James Spader while he’s being entertaining?” is a lot of fun in its own way.
