A New J.A.R.V.I.S. Rumored To Be In THE AVENGERS 2; Don Cheadle Said To Have A "Key Role"
In an effort to confirm from their own sources that USA Today wasn't making an assumption and that Don Cheadle will indeed reprise his Iron Man 3 role in The Avengers sequel, Bleeding Cool has possibly revealed an additional Age of Ultron cast member and an intriguing major plot point.
Apparently Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy actor Simon McBurney is being sought for a role in The Avengers: Age of Ultron that could hint at Joss Whedon's plans for Tony Stark's A.I. Check it out after the jump!
Suggesting first that there's been a lot of info circulating that involves The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Bleeding Cool's sources report that English actor Simon McBurney is "in line to take a role." However, they're unable to confirm the current stage of his casting, or the character he'll play. But what they've been told, presumably by another source, is that McBurney will be playing J.A.R.V.I.S. "Not a computer voice Jarvis, mind you, but an actual Butler called Jarvis," the site added.
UPDATE: Back on the inclusion of Don Cheadle, HitFix can also confirm that "Col. Rhodes, aka War Machine, has a key role in the conflict with Ultron that is the main focus of the sequel."
J.A.R.V.I.S. is Just A Rather Very Intelligent System created for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and voiced by English actor Paul Bettany. But the character was introduced in the Marvel comics as Edwin Jarvis, Iron Man's actual butler. He notably served as a longtime caretaker of the Avengers Mansion and the Stark Tower, which the closing scenes of The Avengers movie implied will become the Avengers Tower. So it's possible that Joss Whedon plans to utilize that in the sequel. And to an extent, It also fuels the strong beliefs that the A.I. Jarvis will become Ultron. What do you think?
So far starring Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, and Samuel L. Jackson and James Spader, The Avengers: Age of Ultron is directed by Joss Whedon from his screenplay, and is slated to begin production in March 2014 and the sequel is scheduled to release on May 1, 2015.
