With The Avengers 2 "Age of Ultron" not featuring Hank Pym, how is Joss Whedon going to present the origin for the robotic villain?

A clue may have landed online in the form of storyboard animatics that were released by artist Federico D’Alessandro.

The artist released animated storyboards for an alternate fate to Ben Kingsley's Mandarin as well as The Wasp being featured as part of the final battle in The Avengers movie.

Another animatic also reveals that Tony Stark's "butler," Jarvis, is a bad guy.

The theory goes that Ultron in The Avengers 2 will be the computer program Jarvis (possibly using an Iron Man suit) with Paul Bettany possibly up for the role.

The Comic-Con teaser did feature Iron Man's mask getting transformed into Ultron.

Getting back to the rumor, UnleashTheFanboy has it that Jarvis being Ultron is the plan, and also regarding Paul Bettany, that the actor has signed a new contract which may include motion-capture work, possibly for Ultron.

"The Avengers 2" hits May 1, 2015.
