Re: From WAR MACHINE to IRON PATRIOT and BEYOND
I see Rhodey cameo-ing in Avengers 2, not a full team member per se, but he can show up for the final battle to show the stakes are higher and such.
I think he should take over the Iron Man Franchise when/if RDJ leaves. There's no reason to have a War Machine Movie if you're not going to have Iron Man 4. Just call War Machine's movie Iron Man 4, let RDJ cameo if he's still appearing in Avengers films or use it to build up the guy they're recasting with. Do the Demon in a Bottle story alongside the Iron Man 2.0 story. Call it a blast.
