Looks like I may have to interview Don Cheadle like I did Halle Berry, when it was rumored that she was coming back as Storm in X Men: Days of Future Past (HERE).
But it’s being reported that War Machine, who was played by Don Cheadle in Iron Man 2 and 3, will be in the next Avengers film entitled The Avengers: Age of Ultron, to be directed by Joss Whedon, and which will be released in 2015.
Of course what War Machine’s involvement with the film will be is not known, whether it’ll be just a cameo or a more extended supporting role, and Whedon is being all very hush-hush in regards to the plot of the movie, except that the new film will include new characters Ultron (James Spader), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson).
However, one film industry reporter has speculated that War Machine’s role could be quite significant since Tony Stark did, in effect, retire at the end of Iron Man 3, and The Avengers would need a replacement, and War Machine is the most likely choice.
However “Stark would create Ultron to be a more permanent replacement, but that backfires when the AI becomes self-aware, and possibly takes out Rhodey who it sees as an immediate threat. Tony is forced to suit up again to help fight the threat he created, with the added personal stakes of Ultron hurting his friend.”
Now will some one just explain in plain simple English what the hell that means?
