jarvisHere’s an interesting rumor that just popped up- Tony Stark may be turning in his suit’s artificial butler for a real life counterpart. Bleeding Cool picked up the story about Don Cheadle coming back as Rhodey in Avengers: Age of Ultron and added a few bits of information of their own. According to them, Simon McBurney is in talks for a role in the highly anticipated Joss Whedon sequel for an unknown part. Well, it’s said to be unknown but the site has a good guess as to who he is.

According to Bleeding Cool, McBurney (actor, writer, director, voice of Kreacher in Harry Potter) is in line for a role in the film though they’re not sure if he is signed on or just “attached.” The site also can’t confirm the role he has been talking to Marvel about, but they “have been told he’ll be the new Jarvis. Not a computer voice Jarvis, mind you, but an actual Butler called Jarvis – or at least called Jarvis by Tony Stark.” With Ultron causing all manner of havoc all across the world, it’s not hard to see why Tony may want to get rid of his A.I. assistant and get a human one. A real life butler, who Tony calls Jarvis whether or not that is is real name, would definitively bring things back around to their comic books origins as well. Edwin Jarvis was Tony‘s butler and a fixture at Avengers mansion. The human Jarvis served in the British RAF in World War II and was a champion boxer. He was a tough old man who made a mean pancake. Pretty much Tony‘s Alfred is what I’m saying. What do you think about Tony possibly getting a human butler in the Avengers sequel?
