Could Don Cheadle be suiting up for "Avengers: Age of Ultron"? According to Bleeding Cool, yes.

The site writes that Cheadle and his character James "Rhodey" Rhodes are "certainly on the docket for the sequel" to 2012's "The Avengers." But just how Iron Man's sidekick will be involved in the follow-up is anyone's guess.

SlashFilm posits that Rhodey's beefed up role in "Iron Man 3" indicates that he could become a bigger part of the Marvel Universe -- and assume one of his comic identities, War Machine and Iron Patriot -- in the future. Of course, Cheadle's participation in the continuing adventures of "The Avengers" has yet to be confirmed, so consider this news just a rumor until there's an official announcement from the actor, director Joss Whedon, or studio Marvel.

"Avengers: Age of Ultron" is due out on May 1, 2015.
