Hello! And welcome to my first post. Should this go well, I hope to be doing this to kill some time to give my input to people who actually appreciate it. Now I would like to thank Adonis Gonzalez for his take on how things may tie together, and in doing so gave me some ideas of my own. You can find him by clicking here.
Now I am not a collector of comics, but I do my fair share of reading up on characters I love. And seeing that this is my first post I want as much input as possible, so please feel free to correct me if I am wrong about anything. The majority of this is from a comment I left on another page, but a bit more in depth.
First of all, let's talk about who I think really created Ultron. In the comics, Ultron was created by Hank Pym, but seeing that this is the cinematic universe things are always up to change. So in trying to make sense of how this could work I have come to the conclusion that both Hank Pym and Howard Stark created Ultron. Both men willing to help the world, then decided to make a single program to benefit mankind. Now if you haven't seen Agent Carter or either Captain America Movies do not continue.
THERE ARE POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
As we know from Agent Carter, Howard Stark's tech has been stolen and is on the market causing mayhem for everyone, which I will get to later. And from Captain America: The First Avenger we see Howard aiding to the war. Now who is to say that Hank Pym was not apart of that movie off working on his Ant-Man suit elsewhere while everything else went down? My theory is that after the events of The First Avenger, Howard and Hank began to get worried about what else might be out there. Both being brilliant men, then decided to make a program that would monitor the worlds connections via the web. They called this program ULTRON, and hoped that with it would come a more peaceful future, and trusting their work, gave it a free will. Ultron would then be the first Artificial Intelligence. The program had access to all the data of the world, and because they made it an A.I during this time, I am assuming it worked like Dr. Arnim-Zola in [Captain America: The Winter Soldier](movie:254973). That or a type and response A.I.
Now to the fun part, with Ultron having the free will to make its own decisions (as it was programmed to do) it came to the conclusion that the world would be better off if the human race never existed. It began to devise a plan to eliminate the human race before Hank and Howards eyes, and being connected to everything relating to tech, tried to eliminate both men. Now they are not dumb, they knew that an error might occur with their tech and so they made a kill switch. Managing to kill the program before any real damage was done, both agreed to lock it in Starks safe for keeping as it was too dangerous to use. Are you catching on yet???
Which is where [Marvel's Agent Carter](series:1119765) comes into play. The whole premise of this show is the formation of SHIELD and to help Howard retrieve his stolen tech after the events of The First Avenger. Yes, you guessed it. Howard fears that Ultron may have been stolen, and that is why he contacted Agent Carter to retrieve his tech and clear his name. Now Hank at this point is working as Ant-Man, the first, I suspect he will make a cameo at the end of the series. But back to the main point. Peggy doesn't know about Ultron, but I suspect that is why Howard wants her of all people to find it. He knows he can trust her. Hank is too busy and would be furious if he found out (In the comics he was a drunk and abusive to his wife). So the point of the show is to introduce not only Ant-Man, but Ultron as well. A subtle way of placing that character in the universe without having to make a movie just based on him. Now as for Scott Lang, I will discuss that later.
With Ultron back in Starks possession, and Ant-Man clearly addressed into the universe now, we get to the Age of Ultron. Tony finds Ultron in his fathers vault with a label maybe with something like Unified & Logical Tactic Reference Operating NanoChip (I am quite proud of coming up with this), and a brief description that is covered in caution tape. With a name like this it is only right to assume it can be beneficial to the team, and because of New York and all he has been through, he needs a break. So he plugs in Ultron, avoiding the warnings assuming he can fix it. When plugged in Ultron is bombarded with all the new knowledge of the world (thus fueling his plan to achieve a world without humans). With newly acquired knowledge, the program begins a conversation with Tony to gain his trust. Ultron helps the team with little things, but all the while he builds his own body and plots to take over. Thus using the team and betraying their trust. In the preview for Age of Ultron, he says "You are all puppets," possibly a reference to how he used them to get what he wants. They recognize it by its voice (or the voice Tony gave it if Ultron was a type response program, J.A.R.V.I.S has a voice so who knows). Which is why they are shocked in the trailer, he now has a body and his intentions are being made clear. If you recall in The First Avenger there is what appears to be The Human Torch Android being displayed during the Stark Expo, which would later explain how Vision was created, because in the comics Ultron made him from the Torch's body.
Now where is [Ant-Man](movie:9048)? Why is he not in the Avengers? What is your point? Well we have to wait for the movie to know for sure, but my theory is that before the events of Civil War take place, Scott Lang (The New Ant-Man) will be contacted by either Steve Rodgers or Tony Stark at the end of Ant-Man to keep his daughter safe from the war that is coming. And so later during the Infinity War, I'm assuming we all think at this point that the Avengers will get back together (Hence the name [The Avengers: Infinity War](movie:738027)). But even if it is not the original Avengers, he will still be be connected to the universe and everything will make sense. I mean Agents of Shield is trying to introduce The Inhumans, and I do not think it a coincidence that Agent Carter showed us our first Ant-Man trailer.
So there you have it, my theory of how everything is connected. We know the shows have a connection to the movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it only makes sense to assume that Agent Carter is to promote a future movie. And thus ends my first post :D Again, give as much input to help me become better at this and feel more motivated to do it. Thanks for reading :D
