Don Cheadle almost reveals Avengers 2 plot, Marvel reacts accordingly

Next year, Don Cheadle will finally get in on the Avengers action. The actor will appear in the sequel, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, alongside Iron Man Robert Downey Jr. As usual, Marvel's keeping its actors on a short leash when it comes to the press. The studio is notorious for keeping plot details under wraps -- by any means necessary.

Cheadle recently visited Arsenio Hall and attempted to reveal a few Avengers secrets. Unfortunately, it didn't go well for the actor. Before he could say anything, his life was immediately threatened. When Marvel says keep quiet, they mean it. Hall stepped in and changed the subject to protect Cheadle from the studio's backlash.

Watch what happens when Cheadle tries to spill the beans.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron co-stars Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen and James Spader. The film opens in theaters May 1, 2015.
