Don Cheadle Talks THE AVENGERS 2; Shane Black Comments On Extremis

Don Cheadle reveals whether or not we should expect to see War Machine make an appearance in the highly anticipated sequel to Marvel's The Avengers, while Iron Man 3 writer and director Shane Black elaborates on the decision to use the Extremis armour.

Talking to Fandango yesterday, Iron Man 3 star Don Cheadle was quizzed on whether or not we can expect to see him appear in a sequel to Marvel's billion dollar hit, The Avengers. Unfortunately, no explanation was given as to why we didn't see Rhodey in that film (perhaps we'll get an answer next May?) but the actor did reveal that "everything has been discussed" when it comes to War Machine appearing in the planned sequel.

"I don't know. The good thing about the Marvel Universe is that all the characters can intersect and everybody can play with each other. So, that may happen just for War Machine on his own. We'll see. Everything's been discussed."

Meanwhile, in a separate video interview with Comic Vine, writer and director Shane Black was quizzed about why they're using the Extremis armour in Iron Man 3. Judging by the comments made below, it definitely sounds as if the events of The Avengers played a role in the decision. We still don't know an awful lot about how big of a part it will play in the highly anticipated threequel, but the Extremis armour was possibly unveiled on the floor of the San Diego Comic-Con yesterday (if you missed it, find those images HERE).

"Because in all the things that we could come up with which would sort of take this to a grittier place, a sort of high-tech Michael Clayton style thriller place, we thought Extremis worked. What are you gonna do after aliens? When there are giant aliens coming out of the sky, what are you gonna do? So, we've decided to try something a little more bizarre and interesting."
