Whedon just said the Ultron creator wouldn't be in the new film.
During a conversation on Marvel's Live blog, Joss Whedon stated that Hank Pym would NOT appear in Avengers 2: Age of Ultron. Courtesy of ComicBookMovie, here's his exact quote:
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.
It also seems that Hawkeye will have a larger role in the new movie.
It's very much a global Avengers film. A lot of the movie has to do with their place not just in America, but the world. Part of the fun for me, definitely this time around, is writing Hawkeye. He did get possessed pretty early by a bad guy and had to walk around all scowly for most of the movie so now it's nice to actually have the character there and see him interact with the other guys.
Our working theory is that Tony Stark, not Hank Pym, will create Ultron (and rumored character The Vision) in the movie. What do you think?
