In Marvel comics canon, the villainous robot Ultron is the creation of scientist/superhero Hank Pym (AKA, Ant-Man). So many fans raised an eyebrow when it was revealed that 'Avengers: Age of Ultron would see the team facing down the villain months before Edgar Wright's 'Ant-Man' arrived in theaters (and, that Ant-Man wouldn't be a part of 'Avengers 2'). However, there's a very simple reason why Ultron is making his first cinematic appearance in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' and not 'Ant-Man' -- Wright never intended for Pym's nemesis to be in the film in the first place.
