Hopefully you haven’t had enough Avengers: Age of Ultron yet because there’s still more information about the film coming in.  So far today we’ve told you about Paul Bettany‘s rendition of Vision and a bit about how Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) will fit into the film, but now we’ve got a little more on the main antagonist, James Spader‘s Ultron, and some rather spoiler-heavy story details as well.

It’s a little surprising that so much Avengers news is hitting just about a week before Marvel’s San Diego Comic-Con panel, but perhaps all of this information will pertain to and possibly enhance the footage they’re planning to show in Hall H on Saturday.  Hit the jump for more.

“It’s not the good version that could’ve come from [Stark’s] intellect and personality … It’s the bad son.”

Ultron is striving for world peace, but the problem is, his way of achieving that is by eradicating the human race entirely.  In the midst of one of his first big battles, the character warns:

“I know you’re ‘good’ people … I know you mean well … but you just didn’t think it through … There is only one path to peace … your extermination.”

Clearly Ultron’s mission isn’t the best thing for us human folks, but Chris Evans still suggests that having a chat with the guy could be enlightening:

“A lot of times when Ultron starts talking, it’s beautiful.  It’s really intelligent stuff …  He’s out to do the things he wants to do because he’s disgusted with X, Y, and Z.  You could probably sit down with Ultron and have a really intelligent conversation.  He could blow your mind with his views.”

That EW article has a pretty in-depth breakdown of the aforementioned battle scene.  You can check it out right here, but you might want to take a pass if you’d rather steer clear of spoilers.
