[Captain America: Civil War](tag:994409) will bring us a bevy of new and returning characters and we sure are in for a treat. With the spotlight on Spider-Man, Scarlet Witch, Vision and multiple other side characters, not much has been said about Don Cheadle's character War Machine.
The last time we saw War Machine was in the Captain America: Civil War trailer where Cheadle was seen laying lifeless in the arms of Tony Stark. This lead to much speculation as to if we would actually see the demise of Tony Stark's best friend on the big screen. Other than that, War Machine has remained relatively in the background since there is so much hype for other aspects of the film. Don Cheadle recently spoke on War Machine's role-and we may be in for more War Machine than what we initially thought.
We Should Expect An Expanded Role For War Machine!
I believe that it is fair to say that War Machine has been underutilized in the MCU so far. We know that Thanos is on his way and every able body will be needed in order to stop him. Hopefully that includes War Machine, and Don Cheadle's recent comments provide a good level of optimism moving forward.
When talking to SUPERHEROHYPE , Cheadle had this to say:
“I never know what it’s going to be and they keep their cards very close to their breast with Marvel,” said Don Cheadle of his future as War Machine. “I never know where the character’s going to go, but he’s become more and more and in the next one, you’ll see that what happens to Rhodey is a little bit more intense and pivotal to what happens in the rest of the stories.”
What Will Be War Machine's "Intense And Pivotal" Role?
All of the characters in the MCU will undoubtably play a more important role moving forward, but how exactly will War Machine play into all of this? War Machine is a very powerful ally for The Avengers to have against Thanos so hopefully we'll see him come more into his own in Civil War. War Machine was always one of my favorite characters in Marvel Comics and I would love to see an expansion of his story moving forward. He could be really great!
Will War Machine Die?
It has been speculated for a while that War Machine will meet his demise in Civil War but I'm not sure if that is the case. War Machine is a character that has been extremely underutilized so far and I don't think his time has come yet. If he were to die I think for one it would be a bit too expected and I believe it would be a travesty for the character. One thing that I do think is a possibility is a death, but now War Machine's, that will boost this character into prominence.
Could Iron Man Die In The Future?
We all know that RDJ can't play the role of Tony Stark forever and we know that someone else will eventually have to step into the role of Iron Man. So could his best friend Rhodes step into that role? I think that is definitely a possibility and this would definitely make War Machine a pretty huge deal in the MCU. It would be a very interesting venture for Don Cheadle and something that could change the MCU forever!
