However, if you want to go all foreshadowing on it, I'll go a step further and say it reinforces *my* theory that Ultron literally *replaces* Tony Stark/Iron Man.
I actually like your theory. Alot.
And at the very least, I think its plausible. Now that's not to say Tony will become a woman, but I think there's a chance Tony injects himself with Extremis, only be taken over by Ultron.
Or, in a variation, Ultron infiltrates his tech and takes over JARVIS who, so far in this universe, can hack into pretty much any computer system imaginable. And as far as this universe goes, taking over JARVIS is taking over Iron Man.
