Terrence Howard is out of "Iron Man 2" and Don Cheadle is in as Rhodey, but there was some concern that the character would not be a major character in the film. This worries some fans who hope to see Rhodey don the War Machine armor some day.
Justin Theroux, writer for the upcoming "Iron Man 2" told MTV News that Rhodey will definitely be in the film.
“I can’t really speak to the plot stuff and all the rest of it but Rhodes is completely present in a very strong and big way,” Theroux said of the man who would be War Machine. “He’s completely present.”
News that Rhodey's role in "Iron Man 2" would be minor came from an article from Entertainment Weekly. The article states, "when Favreau and screenwriter Justin Theroux went to map out the sequel they found themselves minimizing Howard's [Rhodey's] story line."
Theroux had his own thoughts on that EW article.
"All that stuff that was in the ‘EW’ article,” Theroux started before a brief pause. “I don’t know. I can only tell you what I know which is that from a writing standpoint we didn’t do anything differently [with the character]. It’s not like we were sitting there going, we need less of this or that. We just approached the characters and the story on their own terms.”
