The MCU is Marvel's playground. They have a vision for how things will go. If Marvel doesn't see Ultron coming from Pym then so be it, but I think there would be a lot of furious comic book geeks and they will get really mad and, and, write letters or something.
I don't read the comics but that doesn't mean I want the MCU to stray too far from the comic roots. The reason the MCU works is because of the comic roots. Marvel can do what it wants with it's properties but why shoot themselves in the foot?
The fact this movie comes out after Avengers 2 kind of tells me that this will be about Hank Pym in the '60s leading into Lang and we won't get Hank and Janet in an Avengers movie. What people seem to be forgetting is that both stories (Pym and Lang's) are planned to take place in the past, because that's what interests Wright.
