    Read the CBM article with the Whedon interview. Hank Pym isn't in A:AOU.

    Wait, so even if someone like Scott Lang is totally uninteresting to you and they rejuvenate the character to make him interesting in the movie, that's worse than leaving him bland and/or not doing him at all? Honest question, cuz I just feel so differently about that stuff.

    "In (Ultron's) origin story, there was Hank Pym, so a lot of people assumed that he will be in the mix. He's not. We're basically taking the things from the comics for the movies that we need and can use. A lot of stuff has to fall by the wayside."

    Yeah, that seems to be pretty clear that Pym will not be involved with Ultron... Ugh. My enthusiasm for this film has now tanked.

    it originated from the site, right? He didn't say Hank doesn't create Ultron, he said he's not in the mix....something worth noting...

    on the site, another article was just posted quoting Fiege, saying Cap 2 is essentially a direct lead into age of ultron...with that being the case, don't see how it can be soley a stark creation..also, the article provides a source...., the article with Joss' comments, the author provided no source.

    No. Joss LITERALLY said it. It's an interview that didn't even originate from them. i said it's on CBM because it's just easy to find it there.

    That's pretty clearly saying Hank Pym is not creating him.

    And the source is Marvel itself. They interviewed Joss in a live stream.

    True. As much as I hate to admit it, Pym isn´t going to be a part of A:AoU.
    Perhaps he is mentioned or seen very briefly somehow. But I doubt it.
    It´s clear that the MCU is building it´s own version where the threat is
    comming from the Avengers themselves. Iron man is ofc one of the creators.
    I don´t think Iron man alone will be responsible.

    I wonder if Tony (or some other avengers as well) built the AI and the robotic body and there was an accident or if someone did it on purpose.
    This someone could aslo make it look like an accident eventhough it wasn´t

    RDJ just signed a very lucrative new 2 movie deal, the Iron Man solo movies are Marvel's biggest franchise, there' s no way they sideline the franchise player.

    I am calling it now. Tony builds Ultron and then dons the Iron Man suit again out of guilt for whatever Ultron will do.

    Prediction: Hawkeye dies in A:AoU. Makes sense with Whedon saying he has a bigger role.

    Stark is approaching Wolverine level for me. Thank the gods MS has other options unlike FOX's x universe.

    I read that before they showed the title, it showed Ultron's face. Does anyone know where to find that?

    Not if it takes away the character's most important story, like they are with Hank.

    But they won't use those options until forced by RDJ's departure in A3

    Implying they didn't already do this. Why are you guys acting like them diminishing Hank is new news? They already did it when he wasn't in the first Avengers film. If that didn't ruin that film for you then this isn't going to ruin this film for you.


    It's hilarious to me that people are saying the movie is ruined for them because ONE CHARACTER who doesn't even exist yet is being lessened.

    We've already seen Tony driven by guilt and turmoil (IM3); it doesn't really make sense to do it all over again in A2.

    That's the whole point though.

    They had already taken away being an Avengers founder, taken away Ultron, his most important story, makes it pointless for an Ant-Man movie to even be made

    That reminds me of what some people in the batboards said when they found out there was going to be no permawhite for the Joker in TDK. :funny:

    Not that it's the same situation, but I still couldn't help but notice that.

    But surely enough, he won't be featured in Phase 3 at all except for A3, and he'll be gone for good after that.

    But they remedied that by making him the most important character in A2.

    Not Ultron. Hank and Jan. Ultron is still every bit as important as he ever was, if not more so, because he's possibly a product of multiple Avengers in this.

    No it doesn't. People are forgetting that Wright said Scott Lang is the protagonist of the Ant-Man movie and Pym is an older guy. Pym not being big in the MCU is nothing new. And Pym hasn't even been Ant-Man in the comics for over 30 years anyway.

    i praise the marvel films because of the fact that they're able to modernize their characters while still keeping the spirit and the "feel" of the characters and their story lines accurate. completely re-hauling pym and lang to just focus on their science and powers doesn't really do much for me. It sounds like how FOX thinks about some of the x-men characters.
