Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Ultron with sound clips and images.
Well about time we got some Marvel characters that weren't in X-Men or Spider-Man. Ladies and gentlemen I give you Ultron!

A major villain the Marvel Universe who although has been in comics for quite sometime, Ultron is only somewhat new to other forms of media. Ultron is one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel Universe.

In some versions he was created by Hank Pym (Ant / Giant Man) and other versions was created by Tony Stark (Iron Man).

EDITOR'S OPINION

John Stocker and James Horan had great voices IMO, but I think Tom Kane's voice is perfect for Ultron and the best of the group.

I hope and pray that whoever chooses the clip for Spader Ultron includes the "there were a dozen extinction level events before even the *dinosaurs* got theirs!"-line. :D

Hearing Ultron talk about dinosaurs gets me all kinds of excited. :D :D :D

Dang, Tom and James Spader are tied for me.

Tom portrays the kind of Ultron we'd expect, a robot without emotions with Oedipus Complex that wants to destroy humanity because of its many flaws; in essence, he fails to see what makes humans human. I love the one scene in EMH's 2nd season where he begins to give in to his human side and decides to MONOLOGUE instead of, say, blast a hole through Tony Stark's chest. As Hank himself said, Ultron himself is as flawed as the species he oh so very much despises.

Spader's portrayal...is refreshingly different. It brings a whole new visual to his "killer robot" angle and adds a bit of characterization to him while keeping the normal traits intact. In AoU, Ultron was designed by Tony Stark as a peacekeeping force that (like the comics and EMH) deviated from its original purpose and wants to destroy humanity because he feels it's destroying the world (VERY much like EMH). What makes this Ultron stand out alongside Kane's is his REASON for wanting to destroy humanity. First, he believes that he's only taking out the most powerful of humanity's defenders (ie, the Avengers). Then, he wants to cause an event that will force humanity to evolve so that it can protect itself from threats like Thanos or Loki. Finally he just decides "TO HELL WITH REASON!!!" and goes genocidal on human ass. To me, the reason that Spader's Ultron sounds a lot like Tony himself (at least in terms of speech patterns if not the voice directly) is because he was designed by Tony himself, possibly as an interface to talk to like JARVIS except with Tony's inflated ego. The fact that he keeps these traits even as he plots to destroy humans just increases his hypocrisy level. Add to that a concern for the Maximoff Twins, and you have yourself an Ultron both similar and dissimilar to the comics and TV shows.

On a side note, did anyone else note that Jim Meskimen TRIED to emulate Spader's portrayal? IMHO, he just sounds bored. Spader actually had a bit of enthusiasm while playing Ultron, arguably charm, while Jim once again just sounded bored. Again, IMHO, what makes James Spader's voice unique is that little drawl that he has and the subtle growl in his voice, and how he can use it in the most nonchalant manner while speaking calmly. He doesn't sound bored, he sounds like he's speaking casually.

Now that my tangent's over, once again, Tom and Spader tie for me.

1.) Tom Kane - His "NA:HoT" voice was deep and calm and menacing. This is an Ultron who knows that he's won the war and can take his time. His EMH voice is a more standard robot-voice, but it also works. Plus, he gets the coolest lines in those titles. "Did you think I had forgotten about you...MONSTER?", "You misunderstand. I am NOT asking." So great.

2.) James Spader - A very close second. I *kind of* agree with skeletonking. Spader makes a great *villain*, but... I'm just so torn on his performance as *Ultron*. Part of me LOVES it and part of me doesn't. Is it your typical Ultron voice/performance? No. I'm usually the kind of guy who gives movies props for trying something new. So I automatically give this Ultron a thumbs-up for being different. The idea that Ultron would (consciously or subconsciously) take after Tony is such a cool concept, but I almost feel like they took it just a bit too far at times. Having a swagger to Ultron, giving him a more human appearance and mannerisms is cool, but there were times when - if I wasn't grinning at the awesomeness of his lines - then I was just cringing hardcore. It was like having a robot Loki or Ronan - these grand, boisterous, dramatic, Shakespearean villains. Not every villain needs to be an arm-waving, speech-giving fanatic who is looking for a stage.

With all that said, I'm glad they tried something different. It makes me want to hear Tom Kane in a more "personality-based" Ultron. Combine the best of both worlds.

3.) Jim Meskimen - A good blend of the typical "monotone robot voice" but also a bit of personality, like Spader's.

4.) John Stocker - I actually like the growly voice John gave Ultron. It's kind of cool and reminds me a bit of Fred Tatasciore.

5.) UVA (Tom Kenny?) - Although it's difficult to make out in this particular clip, the mechanical effects and monotone voice are adequate.

6.) James Horan - I think he could make a great Ultron if he tried a different voice/had different material. Right now he just sounds like a generic "Boss" villain.

The kind of comments I'm reading about James Spader, I just...

Anyway, I find Tom bland, one dimensional, and motiveless, "I'm a robot and I can be evil so MWAHAHAHAHA"

While James actually has reasoning for his motives, like blaming The Avengers, and his programming is flawed causing him to misunderstands mankind.

I mean fans seriously just want complain about him actually having charactrer, considering the EMH version was good one second and bad the next, look at how Vision is portrayed, or even how Transformers handles the Autobots and Decepticons most of the time, is it really that he has a personality, I mean it's nothing new. Tom had room for improvement in Season 2, but got robbed them of that when EMH was cancelled.

@HyperVoiceActing Indeed. It was a pretty bold and interesting approach. I have a very big weakness for two types of characters: absurdly comical and childish. And Spader's Ultron is a childish character. The reason why I am so fond about childish characters, is because of my extremely childish personality.

And even though the character had a childish personality, I could still tell it was Ultron. So people should be thankful that the essence of the character has been kept intact. He still has the Oedipus Rex complex that is very much an important part of Ultron's personality.

And that's why... Whoops. I got a little carried away. That's my psychological/theatrical rambling for now. :P
pete

@HyperVoiceActing That's why I'm changing to James Spader once he's added, Ultron just randomly decides he hates mankind.

TylerMirage (Admin)
said at 9:22 PM on Tue May 5 2015
@pete Simply addressing the motivation angle, you do realize that both Spader and Kane's Ultrons had, essentially, the exact same motivation and goals, right?

They both wanted to save the world...by destroying it. In order to save/protect humanity and the world, they had to wipe the slate clean. Start over. Begin again. Disappointed and/or disgusted with what humans did with their potential, well... to quote EMH: "The only way to achieve peace is through the elimination of those who would perpetuate war".

The biggest difference was probably how they went about trying to achieve their goal - one wanted to blow up the planet with missiles and the other wanted to smash a 'meteor' into it. Other than that...they're both pretty Ultron-y.

Now, HOW they were portrayed? Yes. Vastly different and a completely different conversation.
pete
said at 9:25 PM on Tue May 5 2015
@TylerMirage Well Tom"s never states his reasons for wanting do so, and SPader states a few.

At least I don't remember EMH saying that, it was pretty much the heck of it. If he helps stop HYDRA/AIM then I see why but nothing really sets it up, even if was a malfunction, at it's clear with Spader..
TylerMirage (Admin)
said at 9:40 PM on Tue May 5 2015
@pete And because it's never outright stated (which it is, by the way) that means it's non-existant, right? ;)

EMH Ultron is a simple peace-keeping drone. Designed and programmed to help guard, protect and rehabilitate prisoners and criminals. The drones are peaceful. They know nothing of violence, only the good in people. Once *educated* on the concept of violence (to combat Kang's invasion), Ultron becomes sentient and is now fully aware of what humanity is capable of. He witnesses the violence and chaos that ensues with humans and wishes to bring order out of that chaos. He feels that the inherent flaws of humanity cannot be overcome, and thus, in order to fulfill his original objective of 'keeping the peace', drastic actions must be taken.

Seems pretty similar to Spader if you ask me.

@TylerMirage I wasn't sure cause I argued this before so didn't remember anything being stated, though yeah that's basically the same, even if they behave differently.

@HyperVoiceActing Ultron is ment to be an emotionless destructive machine. That's why most versions fail, they try to make it human, which was also a bad decision in the comics. A ruthless cunning powerful strategist is much more powerful than the generic "want to destroy this because of that" villain.
pete
said at 12:40 PM on Fri May 8 2015
@Darker A reason four actions is generic how? They can be both, look at Dr. Doom he"s a "ruthless cunning powerful strategist", but also has motives like his hatred for Reed Richards, and even Ultron states motives in both EMH and AoU, as stated above.

@Darker Ultron's not meant to be emotionless. His daddy issues with Pym and his hatred of humanity make him human enough to be shown as a hypocrite.

My problems with AoU's Ultron is that though Spader does some good work, his character is horribly written. After a scary start, he just starts spouting terrible jokes, which deflates any sense of menace that's supposed to come from him. Ultron at times sounded like a stock Seth McFarlane character.

EMH Ultron focused on his rage and hatred, and managed to make him human without having him make dumb quips to show it.
loredragonmaster
said at 7:01 AM on Fri Jun 5 2015
@D.A.V.E. Well, Ultron's MCU incarnation was extracted from *spoilers* Loki's Scepter from the first Avengers movie, and he and Bruce decided to add it to the already-existing Ultron program to help them manage their Iron Legion (who are VERY similar to the original Ultrons from EMH, at least in terms of the fact that they're peacekeeping robots). So who's to say that alien tech mixed with Earth tech would have drastically different results than what we would usually expect?

And as I stated in a previous argument, Ultron was created by Tony Stark, billionaire to top all billionaires (except Bruce Wayne, you just can't top him) and self-proclaimed "genius playboy philanthropist." Perhaps the original design was something that Tony could "talk" to, akin to JARVIS yet somewhat like himself (and that oddly sounded a heck of a lot like James Spader). Ultimately, this is obviously my own headcanon, but what it's leading to is the fact that OF COURSE Spader's Ultron was going to have a few dumb quips here and there because of Stark's influence. And if you didn't notice, he VERY MUCH FOCUSED HIS HATRED. On the Avengers and pretty much all of humanity when he threatened to render them extinct.
D.A.V.E.
said at 8:34 AM on Fri Jun 5 2015
@loredragonmaster The problem is that it's exactly that, a headcannon. Something that was not established in the proper film. So, Ultron taking Tony's personality comes from nowhere.

I just saw the movie and I have to say, Spader is a great villain....but he's a terrible Ultron. My biggest problem with Ultron in this movie is that he's way too damn cartoony, and felt way more like a James Bond villain than he did feel like the character of Ultron. Spader did good with what he had, but really Ultron honestly could've been another villain entirely based on the way he was written and the way he was portrayed in the film.
The Doctor
said at 4:29 AM on Sun May 3 2015
@skeletonking1234 I would call Spader's Ultron many things, but "cartoony" wouldn't be one of them. No offence, but it sounds like you were expecting monotone robot-villain and them giving Ultron more personality caught you off guard.
skeletonking1234
said at 10:27 AM on Sun May 3 2015
@The Doctor No, that was the problem, Ultron shouldn't have been like that at all. It takes the threat out of the character when he constantly says stuff like "come on guys," "oh for god's sake."

That's not the character, he's too goofy and I didn't feel any real threat from him at all in the whole film except for in two scenes, when he first appears, and when he last appears as that was when I felt Spader was given his best material in the role.

He had a personality but was still threatening and cold in his delivery which worked remarkably well. Everywhere else the character has this smug, and condescending attitude through the whole film and it really took me out of this character when he's acting like a Bond villain through most of the film.
loredragonmaster

@skeletonking1234 Well, even James Spade himself described Ultron as a psychopathic manchild, so it would kinda be a given that he would have some humorous moments. And on top of that, he was created by TONY STARK, eccentric comic book billionaire to top them all. It's only fitting that some of his mannerisms carry over to him.

I like Jim's take on Ultron. I like the fact that it's not the usual deep robot voice that Ultron is kind of known for now because of Tom and Spader, and his smooth and lighter voice does sound really good for this portrayal of the character.

My only real gripe is that he kind of changes pace when it comes to how he talks, he'll talk normal at times but then he'll really start to slow down how he talks and it sounds kind of awkward, and I don't really get a robot vibe when that happens. I won't say it ruins the performance but it does sound kind of off at times. Though it is a lot better than a majority of the performances here so I can give it that.
loredragonmaster
said at 3:26 PM on Thu May 14 2015
@skeletonking1234 I think the reasons why he's always changing the way he talks is for one, to keep him separate from the OTHER character Jim voices that also happens to be Ultron-corrupted, and the other would be that he's TRYING to emulate James Spader's speech patterns. Which makes sense, since Avengers Assemble is a kid-ified version of the MCU.

A trailer sound clip and a final cut sound clip would've been completely different.

Who else can't wait to hear what James Spader does with Ultron next year? Tom Kane is great, but I think Spader could make Ultron truly terrifying.

I actually like Tom better in AEMH. Not saying that he was bad in NAHOT (far from it), but I personally felt that he was little too much in-your-face evil in it, while in AEMH he was more motone and calculating which doesn't only make sense for a robot, but also makes it creepier when he says something evil and twisted.

@The Doctor Like when he mentions that he's gonna destroy everything with nuclear missiles, down to the friggin' BACTERIA. That's a lotta evil cooped up in that skeletal mug.

Tom Kane. He definitely sounds more menacing.

Unknown is even more generic than Stocker and Horan, is the rule for actors playing Ultron either be boring or plain awesome?

@Music Meister Hopefully Spader will be the latter.

@Music Meister With the new trailer released I think it's safe to say that Spader is going to storm this compare once he's added.

@Lpfan120 I heard about it, I'm a bit disappointed, but James Spader is a fantastic choice.

Tom Kane. He was better in Next Avengers than in EMH IMO.

@Fulgore2005 Interesting statement. Why do you think so?

@HyperVoiceActing Well, I prefer the more robotic voice from the Next Avengers. But that's not to say I thought he was bad in EMH. The voice with less effects is actually quite interesting IMO. But I just prefer the Next Avengers performance.

@Fulgore2005 Kane's voice WAS so much better in Next Avengers, it was just slower, deeper and just overall more menacing.

Tom Kane as Ultro is one of those roles where no one else can do the character justice like he did.
He had the deep menacing voice but still sounded like a cold calculating machine.

James is okay at best but is basically generic evil robot.

While I don't think he did 'horrible', John is just generic evil guy and is the clear weakest (though let's face it, writing is the major restraint here)

Tom Kane is the clear winner. James Horan was ok and I think John Stockar is absolutely awful.

@coolgeek176 I do think he has a different voice in Avengers Earth's Mightiest Heroes and I prefer it in Next Avengers.

@coolgeek176 I agree. His Next Avengers voice is much more menacing.

Wow, John Stocker is not how I pictured Ultron sounding at all. However, Tom Kane does, so I'm going with him, though James Horan was good, too.

I have to go with Jackson_H on this one, vincent. Wally provided the voice of a prototype that didn't know violence modeled after Hank Pym's own view of how problems should be solved. As soon as Ultron knew of violence, it would gain a thirst for power and become the villain.

Technically since Wally's version isn't evil he's sort of excluded.

The evil version in Earth's Mightiest Heroes is actually voiced by Tom Kane (reprisal).
