We have a potential spoiler about a HUGE villain appearing in Marvel’s WandaVision on Disney Plus from our friends over at Small Screen.
This report from Small Screen comes from a new source as Edward states, however the source did have some interesting proof to back up this information.
Potential spoiler ahead. You have been warned.
Okay here we go.
Ultron is apparently making an appearance on WandaVision; consequently, Vision won’t be the only dead robot in the Disney Plus TV series.
According to Small Screen, James Spader will voice him again for a one-episode reunion.
Created by writer Roy Thomas and artist John Buscema, Ultron made his debut in The Avengers No. 54 in 1968 in a cameo.
In the comics, Ultron was the creation of Hank Pym, who is played by Michael Douglas in the MCU.
However, in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, his origin was tweaked to fit the cinematic narrative.
Consequently, he is an artificial intelligence born from the scientific mind of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.)
Although a critical and commercial success, Age of Ultron is largely seen by fans as the weakest link in the Avengers franchise.
For many, Ultron simply didn’t have the charisma of Loki nor the gravitas of Thanos.
The Villain Ultron To Appear In WandaVision – But In What Form?
Given that, it’s a bit startling to hear that Ultron would return in WandaVision; nevertheless, it’s not too shocking since Ultron created him.
Moreover, with a blast from the past such as Quicksilver (albeit the Fox version) knocking on WandaVision‘s door, it’s a question of “who can it be now?”
Edward Lauder at Small Screen explained that, “As far as I’m aware, Ultron won’t be coming back beyond the WandaVision series.” Furthermore, he states he may not be the version from Age of Ultron, either:
Ultron will be different…but still voiced by James Spader. This will be a scene in which Wanda is trying to deal with the trauma of losing her brother, but it won’t go to plan. Again, this is what I believe will happen, but nothing I’ve been able to confirm yet.
It just might have viewers look at Age of Ultron in a whole new context.
