We've been over this many, many times. The only thing that separates Ultron's story from any other uberkiller robot is the psychodrama of Ultron's Oedipus complex with Hank and Janet. That's what's driven Ultron for five decades, even on up to the present-day Age of Ultron story arc (that doesn't have anything to do with the movie title).
So now....we get any other uberkiller robot.
He can have that with someone else.
If Ant-Man was as important to The Avengers as Batman was to the JL then the reaction to the lack of Ant-Man in TA2 would be MUCH worse than it is now.
