A few years back, the presence of Ultron in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was a minor controversy among Marvel fans. The movie Avengers: Age of Ultron established in the canon that the murderous robot was the invention of Tony Stark and Bruce Banner (mostly Tony), when in the comics that's not the case at all. Instead, Ultron is actually an original creation of Hank Pym's, and his mind was actually designed based on Pym's own brain patterns. At this point it's pretty much a non-issue, as the events of the blockbuster wound up being extremely important for the development of Tony as a character - but with some creativity the connection between the destructive A.I. and Ant-Man could be introduced.

Few comic book villains ever really permanently die, and Ultron happens to be one that is very easy to resurrect. From a story perspective, all it takes is somebody plugging the wrong thumb drive into a computer, and all of a sudden the monster is reborn. That's an easy, bland approach, but it wouldn't even be that hard to weave a narrative into material we already know. Keeping in mind Hank Pym's personal hatred for the Starks, not to mention his arrogance, it wouldn't be a stretch to see him believing that he can bring Ultron back and prevent him from being evil (perhaps by re-working the software with his own brain patterns). Perhaps most importantly, this story could easily be made to be very different from Avengers: Age of Ultron, especially if the action is contained in the aforementioned Big House idea.
