Will War Machine Join the AVENGERS?

 Will we see more of this hero?

While I was walking out of watching IRON MAN 2 earlier today, I was thinking that I’d definitely like to see more of War Machine and Black Widow on screen in the future.   While I don’t know if I’d want to see solo films for either them, I’d definitely like to see them in the AVENGERS movie. If you’ve seen IRON MAN 2, already, then you’ll know that the door is definitely being left open for that.

Obviously, the actors are usually the last ones to know about these sort of things. I remember Sam Jackson saying a while back that, even though he’d just signed a nine-picture-deal with Marvel, he wasn’t even sure if Nick Fury would be showing up in the THOR movie next year. All I can say that, as a fan, I’d like to see an Avengers movie line-up that consists of more than just Cap, Thor, Hulk and Iron Man. As an “industry observer”, though, I can easily foresee a lot of scheduling issues arising over trying to get this many actors to commit to so many movies. So it might be wise on Marvel’s part to allow for a little flexibility regarding the exact line-up. Hell, who knows… Rhodey’s already been Iron Man in the comics, maybe Don Cheadle could eventually assume the red and gold armor for the movies?

Anyway,  while he's dismissed the notion of a War Machine spin-off, it sounds like he’s interested in showing up in more of these Marvel movies. That is, if I’m reading his quotes at MTV news right…

"We've talked in loose terms about the possibility of another film, but not any specifics about what will happen, where they will be or what they'll be doing… I don't know if Rhodey stays in the military, how much latitude he really has — because you can't be independent and be in the chain of command… I wonder if that still will create a source of tension between the two of them, or if somehow he'll take a leave of absence ... or if he'll start walking the really dangerous, slippery slope that Tony Stark does."

I would definitely love to see Black Widow in the Avengers, but War Machine...
Not so sure, but it would be like having two Iron Men in the team... which, although there's nothing wrong with it, would be better on maybe the second movie...

I could see myself enjoying them, though I'm not seeing do much other then cameos or participate in fights, unless the film is like 4 hours long. :P 
 
I'm thinking they for the most part should stick to their respected movie universes.    (Though I would imagine Black Widow much like Fury having important roles in the Avengers film)

My only problem with War Machine is that every other character would have a big story to tell but him. He would be out of the loop. I could see him being in Ironman 3 but im not so sure about the avengers.

Well didn't Fury say that Stark shouldn't use the Iron Man armor on the Avengers so what about Rhodey he was Iron Man for a little while wasn't he?

the "consultant" idea leaves it open for Warmachine to be the teams Iron Man, but for Tony to step in at the end and help save the day from whoever their big bad is.
... ill bet almost anything that the finsihing move in  the final movie is gonna be a unabeam and a bolt of Thor lightning reflected off of caps shield into the big bad, a la Marvel Ultimate Alliance.

I like this idea, the whole Rhodey being Iron Man for the Avengers, cause he's easier to work with that Stark. And Tony would hate being on the sidelines, so that'd give him a nice little bit of character development that the Avengers will probably be lacking as a whole

For all those that saw Iron Man 2 there's scene that had Tony reading a report on himself by Black widow saying that they would only want him in a consultant role, not as Iron Man.  Good way to get Rhodey in the Armor and Stark on the sidelines in the movie.  Or if Downey gets to expensive because of the Iron Man success they can keep him out the movie, but I don't see that happening.  He'd be the biggest name in it

I think it's a practical step. to be honest, Avengers will be Marvel's biggest project in film to date,  and the people are gonna want some heroes to relate to.  
I think Marvel might put him in there to give the African American community representation in the biggest superhero movie ever. This is just my thought. 
 
Unfortunately, there's no readily available heroes to rep us Latinos :(
