Don Cheadle claims there will be a spin-off from Iron Man for War Machine

I suppose given how popular the IRON MAN franchise has been combined with Hollywood’s obsession to turn every comic book and graphic novel ever written into a film, it’s no surprise that War Machine (played by Terrence Howard in the first IRON MAN and Don Cheadle in IRON MAN 2) would get his own film. Don Cheadle says, “They’re developing it now, they’re working on that. I think they’ve hired a writer, so we’ll see how it goes. It would be a lot of fun.”
Not that this really confirms anything because hiring a writer doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to get to production stages, but it is interesting news nonetheless. I’d say it’s as interesting as Cheadle saying that he won’t be appearing even as a cameo in the upcoming AVENGERS movie. Regarding that he says, “I don’t think he shows up in [’Avengers’],I think he’s kind of a lone wolf.” I guess that could change eventually but don’t keep an eye out for any War Machine cameos right now.
