Don Cheadle had to know that when you sign with Marvel, you belong to a universe of movies. Probably a good thing if your job is acting. Especially Thursday, when Crave's Collider dropped word that Cheadle is going to reprise his role as Col. James 'Rhodey' Rhodes for The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Apparently War Machine will have a key role in the battle with Ultron. So is this just a cameo to show all hands on deck and really raise the stakes of the conflict? Or, with Robert Downey, Jr. apparently hanging up the armor after the Avengers sequel, is Marvel setting up someone else to take over? Let us know what you think over on Crave's Facebook.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron is set to launch May 1, 2015.
