While "Avengers 2" is still more than a year away from its May 1, 2015, release date, actor James Spader is already bringing robot villain Ultron to life for the "Age of Ultron" film.

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said he and director Joss Whedon are particularly excited about Spader's Ultron.

"I think people are going to be very, very excited to see what we're doing with the voice that Joss is bringing to life with James Spader for Ultron,” Feige told Movies.com. “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."

Fans can expect a sneak peak of the film on ABC’s “Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe” set to air at 8 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Marvel released a clip of the TV special, which will feature interviews and behind-the-scenes footage from all of the Marvel films.

Spader’s work includes starring on NBC’s “The Blacklist.”

“The Avengers: Age of Ultron” also stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, and Samuel L. Jackson.

The first "Avengers" movie was the third highest-grossing movie of all time.
