And yeah, what's preventing Tao from just talking Shuma down? It's not like his ability only works on humans, right?

I'm aware that Pym is, in terms of the 616 universe, smarter than Banner and Stark. The thing is... that doesn't really matter here. A movie's structure has to be different, and in the context of a movie, balancing 3 geniuses is a recipe for failure, especially when the smartest of them (Pym) is someone who general audiences aren't going to care about or like as much as Stark or Banner. Like it or not, Tony Stark is the epicenter of the Cinematic universe; we've seen his character built and crafted over 4 different movies (keep in mind this isn't a discussion about the quality of those movies, that's irrelevant here), and having Stark be the creator of Ultron is, for better or for worse, a more sensible culmination of it all. In the Cinematic universe, Tony is king; and just as God oh-so-dramatically created Satan, Tony will be the unwitting architect of their enemy.
We don't need Hank Pym in the grand scheme of the Cinematic universe. The genius quota has been filled, and for his intelligence to have any meaning in an Avengers setting, Banner and Stark would be downplayed, which would piss off the thousands of people who, lets face it, were only going to see Iron Man and Hulk again. Comic book movies aren't made for comic book fans anymore. That sucks, but if we accept it, then we can at least move past our prejudices and enjoy them for what they are. With the way in which Tony has been crafted in the Cinematic universe, having him be the man behind Ultron is, in all honesty, a better story.
Excellent post, I couldn't agree with you more.
As long as its good I don't see why not. Personally I am totally against the new Star Wars film. It was George Lucas creation and they shouldn't touch it. It's over. It's legacy will never die there's no reason to continue
Except billions of dollars.
