Ultron's Origin and Motives Revealed in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

Today, Entertainment Weekly released a bunch of new official photos from the upcoming mega blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron. In which they interview Tony Stark himself Robert Downey Jr on the origins of Ultron. The origin was said to be a completely original idea from Joss Whedon and the crew at Marvel Studios and not taking from the comics where Hank Pym creates the evil robot. In this origin it's Tony Stark who accidentally creates Ultron and his evil minions.

Robert Downey Jr says on the status of Tony Stark after the events of The Avengers and Iron Man 3 where he has given up on being Iron Man. As well as his PTSD problem we saw in Iron Man 3:
“What you said about abdication is apt, but I think it’s also about recognizing limitations. The downside of self-sacrifice is that if you make it back, you’ve been out there on the spit and you’ve been turned a couple times and you feel a little burned and traumatized.”
EW goes onto release the first description of Ultron and his motives:
"self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence designed to help assess threats, and direct Stark’s Iron Legion of drones to battle evildoers instead."
Director Joss Whedon lastly adds:
“Ultron sees the big picture and he goes, ‘Okay, we need radical change, which will be violent and appalling, in order to make everything better’; he’s not just going ‘Muhaha, soon I’ll rule!’”
 The Avengers: Age of Ultron hits next May
