How do they know they can trust each other if one of their own builds a death machine?
On top of all that, it creates and greater drama for the MCU itself. Tony being the one to build Ultron would hit harder with the audience. People would care about the personal torment Tony is going through after building Ultron, they wouldn't so much with Pym especially not before he even gets his own movie. It would sort of be like, "oh this random new character created a death machine and I should care about his own feelings why?"
I know a lot of us comic fans aren't going to like it but I'm just saying some of us should start coming to terms with it, just in case. Look at the positives of it and how it makes more sense in the MCU to have Tony be the one to build Ultron than Pym.
Why does it need to be one or the other? Stark and Pym can be collaborating on the creation of Ultron. I want Pym to create the majority, though. It won't be some random character if he's introduced in AOU(possibly even an earlier film like Cap 2) before Ant-Man. We've already dealt with Stark in a dark place, so give another hero a chance to do it. And no one is more fitting in this type of situation than Pym, imo. Getting the audience to care about new characters is something that Marvel embraces.
