Ultron will not be created by Hank Pym in Avengers 2


Well, this is pretty big news. For some of you that don’t know anything about Ultron, he’s basically a powerful machine created by Hank Pym that the Avengers have traded blows with in the comics several times. In fact he’s one of the most difficult foes they’ve dealt with. Joss Whedon recently released a few statements about Ultron and his origins in Avengers 2: Age of Ultron: 

Well, because there was a book called ‘Age of Ultron’ quite recently, a lot of people have assumed that is what we’re doing, but that is not the case. We’re doing our own version of the origin story for Ultron. In the origin story, there was Hank Pym, so a lot of people assumed that he will be in the mix. He’s not. We’re basically taking the things from the comics for the movies that we need and can use. A lot of stuff has to fall by the wayside….We’re crafting our own version of it where his origin comes more directly from The Avengers we already know about. It’s a little bit darker than the other film because Ultron is in the house. There’s a science fiction theme that wasn’t there in the other one. Ultron is definitely something that evolves, so we’re going to get together a couple of different iterations. Nothing can be translated exactly as it was from the comics; particularly Ultron.

There you have it from our very own Joss Whedon’s mouth. A lot of people are speculating that Tony Stark is the one that creates Ultron; just like in the recent cartoon iterations. What do you guys think?
