The 2DS Is Now A Thing...

...in case you ever thought "I will never play 3DS games in 3D ever." Don't get me wrong, I'm sure there are some people who have, but I guess this is just Nintendo's way of introducing an affordable, entry level gaming handheld that can still play all the 3ds games without being $200. The 2DS is roughly the same system, while lacking 2 critical (but not make-or-break) features: namely, the 3D gaming, and the ability to fold it closed. 

The system comes out October 12th in the States, and will come out in either red or blue. You can pre-order the system now over at Nintendo's website.

James Spader as Ultron

So we already knew that the next Avengers movie would be based on the Age of Ultron saga, but what we didn't know at the time was how they would reconcile the cinematic universe with the comics, where Hank Pym created Ultron. From what we've seen so far though, it's safe to say that Tony Stark will be responsible for creating Ultron. We also know now that James Spader (from Boston Legal, Pretty In Pink and Stargate) will be playing the artificial intelligence.

In a press release, Marvel stated:

James Spader will face off against Earth’s Mightiest Heroes as the villain in Marvel’s "Avengers: Age of Ultron," the sequel to 2012’s record-breaking "Marvel’s The Avengers." The Emmy Award-winning actor will play Ultron in the Avengers’ much anticipated return to the big screen from writer/director Joss Whedon. The film comes to theaters on May 1, 2015. 

 

Spader earned three Emmy Awards for his role as Alan Shore on "Boston Legal" and "The Practice," and will return to television this fall in NBC’s highly anticipated series "The Blacklist." Most recently Spader was seen in the critically-acclaimed film "Lincoln" directed by Steven Spielberg and has previously worked with a long list of accomplished film directors including David Cronenberg, Curtis Hansen, Sidney Lumet, Mike Nichols, Tim Robbins, Robert Rodriguez, Steven Soderbergh, and Oliver Stone.  David Mamet also directed Spader in the Broadway play Race.

 

"Avengers: Age of Ultron" will bring the Marvel Universe’s biggest heroes together again to face one of their biggest villains, with "Marvel’s The Avengers" director Joss Whedon returning to write and direct the sequel. "Marvel’s The Avengers" was released in 2012 and went on to earn $1.5 billion worldwide, making it the third-largest grossing movie of all time.

So what do you guys think? Is Spader a good fit for Ultron? Let us know down below!
