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.
Rhodey in the comics does have a huge history with Tony, but before Iron Man 2, I could count the number of times Rhodey in the War Machine armor appeared in an Iron Man comic with my fingers.

And again, his inclusion in the Avengers would be redundant and wouldn't make any sense since he has never been a member of the Avengers main roster.
