Avengers: Age Of Ultron could change the story of Ant Man, and here is how it may happen.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the origin of the villain from Avengers: Age Of Ultron will be changed to reflect the fact that Ant Man won’t be in the franchise until after the second group film. This means that Ultron will not be created accidentally by Henry “Hank” Pym, and will come from existing Avengers at the moment.
As The Inquisitr also previously mentioned, Captain America: The Winter Soldier could have Ultron in it before the villain appears in Avengers: Age Of Ultron, indicating that Chris Evans’ character might encounter the villain in production, such as a background image, or in a cameo. The robot might even be part of the film’s end credit sequence, a staple in Marvel superhero movies since Daredevil.
All this said, Ant Man will no longer be responsible for the creation of Ultron, so it may fall into the lap of Tony Stark to accidentally create the villain while he’s making an intelligent backup unit for emergencies. There have been no mentions of Vision, Ultron’s rogue copy, appearing in Avengers: Age Of Ultron, so this creates an interesting opening for Ant Man.
Ant Man might start out sort of like the Hulk did, a scientist (Henry Pym) who stumbles upon a secret to superhuman potential entirely by accident, but instead of having difficulty controlling the transformation, he can will it to happen. Unfortunately, this also unlocks a hidden dark side to him, and he begins creating a robot secretly with his darker personality, but it’s just a prototype.
It isn’t until Henry Pym sees the real Ultron in action that his dark side gets the idea of creating his own version, with the intention of using it to fight alongside him. As he and his girlfriend (and fellow scientist) Janet Van Dyne accidentally create another villain, which she calls a “vision” before it hospitalizes her. The robot adopts the word as its own name, and Henry Pym has to use his newfound powers of size control to capture and reprogram Vision, and it gets the attention of Nick Fury, who invites them both to join the Avengers. The end credits scene could be his girlfriend waking up and realizing she has somehow also gained his powers as he and Nick Fury look on expectantly.
