Don Cheadle set for Avengers: Age Of Ultron
Suiting up for The Avengers 2 is Don Cheadle, who makes the leap across from Iron Man 3...
Shooting begins next year on Joss Whedon's sequel to his smash-hit The Avengers movie. We already know that the film, Avengers: Age Of Ultron, will feature James Spader as the major new addition to the cast, and we already know that lots of familiar faces from the Marvel movies will be returning too.
Following the effective conclusion of the Iron Man cinematic story in Iron Man 3 earlier this year, there had at one stage been some speculation as to whether Robert Downey Jr would return for the movie. He's subsequently signed up for two Avengers movies, which answered that question.
But according to USA Today, Don Cheadle will be making the leap to Avengers: Age Of Ultron as well. And apparently, it'll be in his War Machine guise. Furthermore, Hitfix adds that he will have "a key role in the conflict with Ultron that is the main focus of the sequel".
Exactly how he fits in remains to be seen of course, but as soon as we find out more about the film, we'll let you know.
Avengers: Age Of Ultron arrives in the summer of 2015.
