I think the most asked question about [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](movie:293035) is: "Who the hell is Ultron's creator". I mean look at all the chaos he's causing in that concept art! This is my very first article and I'm new at this. I will give you a few possibilities on who could be the creator of the bad-a** robot that is Ultron, or could Ultron be something we've already seen?
Although in the comic books, Hank Pym is, in fact, the creator of Ultron. But unfortunately there was no indication from Joss Whedon or Kevin Feige that this could be a possibility. The possibility is very unlikely.
S.H.I.E.L.D? (those sneaky bastards)
Look, anything is possible with these people, ANYTHING, I mean, come ON, HYDRA ring a bell? If Ultron were to be a project of SHIELD's I would not be surprised. They replicated guns made by Nazis.
This would not be a surprise because in the synopsis of Avengers:Age of Ultron, they mention a "dormant peacekeeping project" or something like that. S.H.I.E.L.D. is also responsible for the creation of Armin Zola from Captain America: The Winter Soldier, what if Armin could put his thoughts and programming into one of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s "peacekeeping projects", the same way he got into the computer on Captain America: The Winter Soldier?? Huh? Huh?
Tony Stark? (I think so too!)
Do you remember in Iron Man 3 where Tony is having that bad dream and all of a sudden a ZOMBIE robot attacks Pepper? GREAT! Because I do too, secretly, we could've seen a glimpse of Ultron. Now you say: "But all the suits were blown up!", and yes they were, but Tony goes on to say: "I must've called it in my sleep, it's not supposed to do that, I should recalibrate the sensors". Whats to say it couldn't happen again in an old "faulty suit".
In an excellent post by S Danielle Miles she adds the live feed by ComingSoon.net of a video screening of AAOT at SDCC, if you would like to check it out: https://moviepilot.com/posts/2014/07/27/sdcc-marvel-shows-age-of-ultron-footage-and-it-is-intense-2142602
Silas Lesnick, after watching a clip of AAoT tweeted:
- Silas Lesnick: It's an old suit, moving like a zombie,entering the room.
- Silas Lesnick: It's Ultron!
- Silas Lesnick: "There's only one path to peace," he says, "Your extinction!"
So clearly all the evidence points to Tony Stark being the creator of Ultron. I hope this was helpful and less mediocre than I expect it to be.
