Seems like The Avengers will have to make room for one more in their upcoming film as it appears Don Cheadle could be reprising his role of Colonel James Rhodes, AKA War Machine, in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Originally mentioned in passing at USA Today, Bleeding Cool reported the story as a rumor followed by a “confirmation” from HitFix on the actor’s return for the film.
In addition, Bleeding Cool reports that British actor Simon McBurney is in line for a role in the film that they are hearing will be the “new Jarvis,” which isn’t a replacement computer but the actual butler named Jarvis.
This all remains unconfirmed by Marvel Studios, but check back here for official confirmation on the matter as we learn it.
Avengers: Age of Ultron will bring the Marvel Universe’s biggest heroes together again to face one of their biggest villains, with Marvel’s The Avengers director Joss Whedon returning to write and direct the sequel. The film is set to open May 1, 2015.
