Edgar Wright On The Lack Of Hank Pym In AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON


ant-manFans weren’t too pleased when Joss Whedon revealed that Hank Pym would not be the creator of Ultron in the Avengers sequel. The departure from the comics in such a big way was a hard pill to swallow for some. It seems people have finally come around and those fires have died down across the web. Ant-Man director Edgar Wright may put the entire thing to rest by giving the Ultron creation Whedon will present in his film his seal of approval.

Speaking with IGN for a rapid fire World’s End themed Q&A, a few Ant-Man questions popped up. The first question that popped up was concerning whether or not Scott and Cassie Lang would appear in the movie or if Hank Pym was the sole focus. Wright dodged that one by saying “I’m going to say very definitely yes! But to which of the three people do I refer? That will remain a mystery.” When asked the big question about Hank Pym not creating Ultron, the director said he’s cool with it after speaking with Joss about the plans:

I’m OK with it in that our script doesn’t feature Ultron. You know, I spoke to Joss about what their plans are. It all sounds very cool. And so, it’s fine by me.

If Hank Pym doesn’t create Ultron in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Tony Stark is the most likely candidate to do the deed. He had semi-sentient operating systems in his suits of armor in Iron Man 3 so it’s not a huge leap to a fully sentient artificial intelligence. What do you think about Wright‘s comments? Do you think Tony will be the one to create the Avengers’ most formidable villain?
