How will Ultron emerge in Avengers sequel?

As we noted here, the next Avengers [film] villain will be the dreaded mechanoid Ultron. But the powers-that-be have stated that the robot will not be created by Hank Pym, aka Ant Man/Giant Man/Goliath/etc. So, how will Ultron come about? Bleeding Cool offers up some suggestions:

Could J.A.R.V.I.S. be Ultron? Modelled on the brain waves of Tony Stark?

Next, we have the return, somehow of Agent Coulson in Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. And there’s a mystery something that “he must never know.”

Is Agent Coulson a Life Model Decoy? Could he be an artificial intelligence.

Could Agent Coulson be Ultron?

Of these, the first one is great possibility in my view. A commenter to the B.C. article offers up this:

I love how all these comics news sites are publishing articles "predicting" that Tony Stark will be Ultron's creator in the movieverse, when Whedon pretty much spelled that out already. (I haven't read where Whedon has alluded to that. -- Hube)

And not a single one of them mentions how the movieverse Iron Man helmet kind of resembles the Ultron helmet, or that having Stark accidentally create Ultron finally gives everyone a reason to put Tony back in the Iron Man suit (once you can control an army of Iron Men from a distance, it'll take a reason like this to explain why Tony would *ever* want to risk his life stepping into an Iron Man armor again; having the AI gain sentience and try to take over the world would certainly make ME think twice about ever allowing an Iron Man suit to leave the house without me again).

Perfectly logical. I'm sold.

Yeah, I guess it does make sense that Iron Man might invent Ultron in the movie universe.
