Does anyone in an Iron Man costume actually wear the helmet anymore?
Wearing helmets is sooooo last year.....
They do when they're not being photographed for marketing purposes.
Don Cheadle's head = big opening weekend, I'll give them that.
Rhodes looks Cool. I like it. I wonder if Mandarin gets a Poster, too.
I already know that from my massive collection of IM comics...
I'm going to facepalm if Rhodey in IM3 gets as much screentime as Stark/IM. He's a side character at best. I know he's Stark's friend, but Stark should get the majority of the screentime.
I don't get why fanboys have a hardon over War Machine. Is it because he has a minigun attached to his shoulder?
^^^ ya nailed it, lol
What's better than Iron Man?
Iron Man with a mini-gun of course!
Everyone got their own poster in the AVENGERS marketing, and everyone liked that....so the logical step is to give lots of the secondary characters in all upcoming MARVEL movies their own poster. I have no problem with that, and like that people have so many choices of posters to get now a days.
LOL, Figs are you seriously upset that Rhodey gets his own poster?
Honestly, I hope Rescue/Pepper gets her own poster now just to see the reactions .
Obviously Rhodey/Iron Patriot is an important part of this movie and he's another armored character, so it makes sense he'd get a poster.
Everyone got a poster in the Thor marketing as well.
just a poster with Pepper standing there in a room with a suit like back in the corner behind her? haha I'd love that people would be fighting about if it's a subtle hint or not. make this happen marvel
Don Cheadle is Norman Osborn!
Cap got some, too.
Freaking out that Rhodey got one is just...
Because he's the Murtaugh to Stark's Riggs.
Also he has a minigun attached to his shoulder.
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.
There's no denying WM looks badass in the comics and the movies; but I think most fanboys "have a hardon" for him because he's black, and that's still a rarity in the the world of comics *and* comic-book movies. I'd still love to see both Falcon AND War Machine graduate to the Avengers....get some affirmative action up in this mofo
I love war machine because iron man with bigger guns is pretty cool to me. Idc if he's white or black. And i dont want to see War machine in the avengers. MAYBE falcon, depending on how he is in the cap movie. Nothing to do with race whatsoever. I wouldnt want them to bring in falcon or wm instead of black panther though, no way.
Where'd you get this pic? I've never seen it. Awesome picture.
But looking at that pic reminds me of a loose string from the Avengers movie: I hope Widow gets to keep Loki's +3 Spear of Mind****.
The poster is cool, but I'm more excited at seeing a Mandarin poster.
agreed, I hope it's really cool if they do one.
It's not so much that he's getting his own poster. To be honest the poster itself doesn't truly bother me. I'm just worried about how much screen time he might take away from Stark. Don't get me wrong, I do like Cheadle a lot as an actor and enjoyed him for the most part in IM2, I just want this film to focus primarily on Stark/IM, especially after what we got in part 2. I know it will focus on Stark of course, but I don't want War Machine/Iron Patriot to hog a lot of the screen time.
I'll admit, he does look fairly badass and I think that it is good that they have a black character in a few of these films(crossing my fingers for a Black Panther movie to be honest). When it comes to the Avengers, I don't want him anywhere near the next movie. If the previous cast returns, it will just be too crowded.
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.
Any word on the running time for this film yet?
