Cheadle also stated that Iron Man 3 will start shooting in May so expect casting news to emerge soon. Specifically news on who the villain is and which actor/actress will be portraying him/her. I'm personally hoping for Madams Masque and Taskmaster as the sympathetic villain.

I hope so,the battles with Whiplash in IM2 were TOO F*CKING SHORT
the battle with the drones was cool,but the final boss was too easy :P
CraptainAmerica - 1/14/2012, 6:36 AM
Glad to hear it! Let's just all hold hands and pray for a real threat...let's pray for The Mandarin...or we can just hold hands?...

I don't know what it is about Don Chealde, but I just can't stand him. He distracts and detracts from every movie he's in. Oh, and he was terrible in IM2. I really hoped he wouldn't return for the 3rd.
AlibiBreakfast - 1/14/2012, 6:45 AM
He seems like a nice guy and all, plus his work with Rwanda is honorable...I dont know, I just can't put my finger on why I dislike him. And it's not his race-- I'm black.
Jolt17 - 1/14/2012, 7:11 AM
AlibiBreakfast: Eh, he's returning, that's why he talks about the movie I believe. :P

And I don't know, he was very fine as Rhodey to me...or probably I was just too happy seeing War Machine in action. Whatever it is, hopefully this next one features more of War Machine.

I liked him in that movie about Mars, where he was stranded. Hard for me to think of any other movies I've seen them in. I did just watch iron Man 2 yesterday on Netflix, talk about synchronicity, and I seem to enjoy the movie much more than I did when it came out. I guess I just had time for it to soak in, but I think part of what people didn't like about iron Man 2 was Tony acting like such a Dick, me included. But I see now that the character needed to grow. The subject matter being, what would you do if you're going to die and you were a billionaire. You would probably be a major Dick also. Anyhow, I'm getting psyched about the avengers, iron Man 3 starting filming soon, and talk of Thor 2 starting early summer.

it'll be cool to see war machine in the third film as well.

iron man + war machine + ghost + ???????? = armour wars
superpooper - 1/14/2012, 7:17 AM
Love Don Cheadle as an actor but he was a weak replacement for Terence Howard. I think Terence fit the role perfectly and it was a big loss when he wouldn't come back. I hope this doesn't mean more War Machine. We don't need another Iron Man movie with two Iron Men please. Let's concentrate on having a good villain and something to new to keep the character fresh. Iron Man doesn't seem as much of a Super Hero when there's basically two of him.
InFamouslyCool - 1/14/2012, 7:19 AM
More action doesn't mean it'll be better. And Terrence Howard was a much better Rhodes.
maxleresistant - 1/14/2012, 7:26 AM
All I need to know, is that shane black directs it. That's enough for me, the guy is a genius

"I like women who look like me. Generally, you're attracted to women who look like you, because the most beautiful thing in nature is your own reflection."

-Terrence Howard

What a douche.

Don't get all the Cheadle hate. Like he said at the beginning of IM2, "It's me, I'm here, get over it."

dmm5 - 1/14/2012, 7:34 AM
Howard was perfect as Rhodey, he had a great believable relationship with RDJ.

And Iron Man 2 should've had the amour wars touch to it. Hammer hiring these evil geniuses (Ghost, Whiplash, Unicorn, ect.) to take down Stark plus the military drones. Now that would've put alot on Tony, and adding him dying too! Then putting War Machine into the mix! Damn.... I'm sorry lol
NeoBaggins - 1/14/2012, 7:38 AM
War Machine is in Iron Man 3? Interesting. *strokes beard*. Throw in the Mandarine and you have my attention.
StrangerX - 1/14/2012, 7:47 AM
Don Cheadle is awesome. He may not have been my best choice for Rhodey, but I have no complaints about his acting ability. From Hotel Rwanda to the Oceans 11 movies he's been great.
NeoBaggins - 1/14/2012, 7:56 AM
Yeah, Cheedle doesn't have the look, but he has the presence and attitude. Iron Man had a perfect cast and was pretty annoying when Howard got cut. But now that I look at it, Howard is kinda soft and I can't see him being a badass in the suit. Cheedles a little guy, but his presence makes for a more believable suit pilot.

I guess he's the lesser of two weevils.
GreyChaos13Zero - 1/14/2012, 8:01 AM
so does that mean no War Machine spin off movie:(
kurekurcubic - 1/14/2012, 8:15 AM
first of all howard is a terrible [frick]ing actor,im not even gonna comment on his voice
cheadle is ok.
but i feel like this whole war machine/rhodey guy is completly useless.i mean who wants 2 iron men in iron man film??
its like having 2 rambos or 2 indiana jones.its disgusting!!!
GUNSMITH - 1/14/2012, 8:16 AM
I LOVED BOTH IRON MAN 1 AND 2 HONESTLY..THE ONLY QUESTION I HAVE IS:



RHODEY SEES TONY DRUNK AND JUMPS INTO THE MACH 2 SUIT..ISN'T IT ADJUSTED TO ONLY FIT TONY STARK THOUGH? AND DID HE SAY "JARVIS SUIT ME UP." HAS HE BEEN IN IT BEFORE?....JUST CURIOUS
Xeetor - 1/14/2012, 8:28 AM
People didn't sit through the Matrix sequels because of the old bag they got to play Oracle. We need a good villain to wrap this up, an archenemy.
GUNSMITH - 1/14/2012, 8:37 AM
I HONESTLY WANNA SEE ARMOR WARS PLAY OUT..SOMEONES BOUND TO INTEGRATE TONY'S TECH INTO THEIR OWN SUITS..WHY JUST ONE MAIN BADDIE? WHY NOT A SLEW OF FAMILIAR ARMORED VILLAINS HE CAN HUNT DOWN.
dahamma - 1/14/2012, 8:39 AM
I hope it focuses on Iron Man, War Machine is ok, but his addition ruined the uniqueness of Iron Man because here is another guy with a suit.

Bleeding Armor would be so freaking sweet tho. ACtion is a must but PLEASE make this a character driven story like the first one.
jazzman - 1/14/2012, 8:44 AM
@supersayianfan1

thats not true about Terrence Howard and Halle Berry. she has a daugther from Gabriel Aubry

@kurekurcubic

War Machine is important in Iron Man movie so no its not useless.
jazzman - 1/14/2012, 8:48 AM
@dahamma

War Machine didnt ruined Iron Man its more to do with replacing Terrence Howard with Don Cheadle. plus Marvel Studio rushed the development of Iron Man 2. they did not take time to write a better script.
OhGawDuhhh - 1/14/2012, 9:23 AM
Terrence Howard had great chemistry with RDJ but I feel that Don Cheadle had more presence. When he emerged at the birthday party in that Mark II armor and said, "I'm only gonna say this once.. GIT OUTTT." and the helmet slammed shut, I was like, "oooooh SH*T!" That was the moment I loved him as Rhoadey.
nailbiter111 - 1/14/2012, 9:24 AM
for as good of an actor as don cheadle is i have to agree with most comments here, he wasn't as good as Terrence Howard. Don just had no chemistry with RDJ, which was surprising as hell.
AlexRival - 1/14/2012, 9:25 AM
Gunsmith, I'm gonna get you a new keyboard.
DeathAdder - 1/14/2012, 9:28 AM
War Machine ruined Iron Man 2. He took away from the uniqueness of Iron Man, he took budget and screen time from the villains.

Part 3 is sounding worse and worse with each news report, no Mandarin and now War Machine is pretty much confirmed to return.
Ceejay - 1/14/2012, 9:49 AM
Worse recast in history!

Should have gone With Michael Ealy instead as a replacement.



And should have really used Taye Diggs from the very start in Iron Man 1.
Ryguy88 - 1/14/2012, 9:54 AM
So it's going to have a better story be more character oriented AND be more action packed....Sounds like the perfect movie! Hope it works out!
Ryguy88 - 1/14/2012, 9:57 AM
Intruder, what also sucked about it was how all the talking that was in it was pointless and boring. Talking is fine, if done properly.

I think Cheadle is the better actor he just had a horribly written part in Iron Man 2.
RyanLantern77 - 1/14/2012, 10:09 AM
Thats good because IM2 was boring as shit.. Bringing Don Cheadle in was a terrible move, he was awful
ellispart3 - 1/14/2012, 10:25 AM
I though cheadle was an improvement on howard (odd recast though, just substitute one brotha for another regardless if he is a lot darker than howard..guess we're interchangeable).

Howard came off more as whiny and was more annoying than anything else. IM2 felt like a rush job to stuff in as much stuff as possible, not a terrible movie though.

I wouldn't mind a IM3 where they deal with the aftermath of the Avengers movie (whatever it may be) that leads other countries to openly developing their own IM tech and bring in a few decent armored villains (love to see the real crimson dynamo, titanium man, ghost,ect). It'd be interesting to see how IM deals with true competition in the Marvel Movie Universe.
Supes17 - 1/14/2012, 10:27 AM
Just rewatched Iron Man 2 the other day. I thought Cheadle was better than Howard Honestly the problems I saw were the writing and fight scenes. They were too damn short. The climatic boss fight was only like 40secs!
Yes, the film is lackluster when compared to the 1st Iron Man, but it was pretty decent imo.

Now let's just hope that they make the action scenes longer this time. Iron Man should be all abut story and action packed fight scenes, not just dialogue
Supes17 - 1/14/2012, 10:32 AM
Maybe they should kill Rhodey in the 3rd film. Then have Stark battling deppression as his enemies take his company apart. Ghost should infiltrate Stark's company. Idk, just an idea. They should go all out on this one
jazzman - 1/14/2012, 10:33 AM
@Ceejay

maybe they should of used Idris Elba from the start lol

jazzman - 1/14/2012, 10:34 AM
@Supes17

are u crazy kill Rhodey
MaddMonkk - 1/14/2012, 10:43 AM
I like Howard and Cheadle, but i didn't think either was a very good choice for Rhodey. Howard had a great memorable line "Next time, baby." Cheadle....can't remember anything cool like that. Honestly I don't know who would make a great Rhodey. I like Eddie Murphy! (kidding)
DeathAdder - 1/14/2012, 10:43 AM
Killing Rhodey off wouldn't be a bad idea actually
TheMarmoset - 1/14/2012, 11:23 AM
Iron Man 2 was good. Just not as great as IM1 or the two Batman movies. As far as i concerned, its better than practically every other superhero movie. The only places you hear people hating on it are biased websites like these. Most non-geeks liked the movie hence why it got good reviews and made huge non-3D money.
Supes17 - 1/14/2012, 11:25 AM
killing Rhodey would be unexpected, and would make a great plot. I would like to see Tony pulling it together and avenging his friend.
Not a bad way to end the trilogy. To get to Stark, whose identity is known, all they have to do is get to the people he loves. They wouldnt kill Pepper off, bc it'd be too similar to TDK and Stark deserves a happy ending. So I think it should be Rhodey.
Just a fanboy's opinion
