Default Re: The IRON MAN 3 News & Speculation Thread - Part 7

I don't get the hostility to Rhodey/War Machine from some fans. He's been a big part of Iron Man lore for over three decades and has even taken over the role of Iron Man when Tony had to give up the armor. Tony & Rhodey have a long-standing friendship that has outlasted all of Tony's various romances. Yet there are still people who act as if Rhodey's inclusion in the films is some sort of affront. It makes no sense to me.
