Right now, nothing points to it being Ultron, other than the fact that he's metallic.
Also knowing about how CGI works - they are in no way locked into THIS design for the final film - regardless of who it is suppose to be. The very nature of CGI allows them to make radical changes long after these scenes have been shot, limited only by time and money. They also do not "need" a motion capture performance - or at least one shot at this time - if it is Ultron perhaps his mo-cap will be shot later.

Agreed that about all we can assume for sure is that this character is standing in for something shiny and metallic.
