“The Avengers” won’t have War Machine, Cheadle says


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Don’t expect to see War Machine in Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers” when it comes out next summer. According to Don Cheadle, who played the Marvel hero in Jon Favreau’s “Iron Man 2,” he’s not showing up … and he’s thrilled with the character’s absence!

“I have a contract to be in ‘The Avengers,’ but I’m glad they haven’t exercised that option yet. I need some down time,” Cheadle tells Collider in an interview.

So when might we see Cheadle in the iron underwear again? Well, the actor who once replaced Terrence Howard in the “Iron Man” franchise speculates that he’ll be back for the announced “Iron Man 3,” which Shane Black will direct.

“We’ll probably do that again in February, and there’s talk of a War Machine spinoff, which I guess, unless I get recast, I would probably do.”

Great line. I think Cheadle was fine as James “Rhodey” Rhodes, but then again, I didn’t have a problem with Howard, who apparently bid himself out of the franchise with contract negotiations.
