    There was that rumor of him getting a tv series. Might be difficult since his show Black Monday got renewed recently and it'll start filming by August/September.

    I'm pissed that we didn't see him lay the SMACKDOWN during the battle sequences. He had a new armor and everything. Though, when did he have the time to change into that considering he was nearly drowning?

    The battle scenes could have done a better job of showing every character getting clearly involved in the action, even in group shots. No need to skip over some of them to an extent.

    Agreed. It was far better in Infinity War. We knew what everyone was doing. This time around, the camera work was a bit sloppy or too fast. I'd get a glimpse of what someone was doing, but not entirely sure what they did.

    That's actually, a pretty good point.

    When Nebula said they are not the only one looking for power stone in 2014, I honestly thought they will have to fight Korath and his troops.

    That would give Rhodey and Nebula a more memorable action scene.

    ^THIS. I kept waiting for that to happen. they really skimped out on Rhodey's action this film in favor of giving him more dialogue.

    I don't know if this has been addressed yet, but I noticed that Rhodey's suit changed after the end of the battle. When we saw him with Ant-Man, Hulk and Rocket, he's wearing his usual War Machine suit but at the end, he looks like a Terran Marine from Starcraft.

    I really hope they go through with the idea of a series. I feel there's a crowd for it. But it needs to have a suitable budget (far more than the others).

    War Machine's role went up & down throughout the MCU

    Iron Man: Introduction, didn't do much. (Next time, baby!) Sorry Terrence!

    Iron Man 2: War Machine debut. Complete badass.

    Avengers: Missing in Action

    Iron Man 3: We saw Rhodes in action but not War Machine. Wish we had a little scene where Tony actually called a War Machine for Rhodes and kicked ass together.

    Age of Ultron: Had one good action scene. ("Show 'em what we got.") plus the War Machine story. Wish they left off the comedic scene with Vision stealing his kills and actually had War Machine eliminate them.

    Civil War: This is the point where I think his character improved. Great fighting scenes and that little duo with Iron Man.

    Infinity War: His best movie with him blowing up everything. Really liked his role on this one.

    Endgame: Could not remember him doing anything besides knocking out Quill. and Cheez Whiz. Then again, i've only had the time to see the movie once.

    You summed it up well. He seemed to have a nice moment with Nebula in Endgame as well.

    They dropped the BALL on just letting him kick some ASS. Not sure why exactly. I really liked him in CW and also IW. He had a load of screentime in Endgame and was a bit of comic relief but sadly no action sequences.

    I think it's the same answer everyone seems to keep rejecting implicitly by continuing to post about "Why wasn't X done/in AEG?" posts.

    It was already a three hour movie. Why didn't they do what each an every individual fan thought should be done?

    It was already a three hour movie.

    Why didn't they cut out what a fan thinks is unnecessary to make room for said fan's hypothetical "improved scene"? Probably because the directors and the producer looked at what was best for the story they wanted to tell which included having to decide what made the most sense to keep focused on and what was ultimately superfluous...

    Because it was already a three hour movie.

    It's often frustrating when they don't do what you think is best in a film but... Given what they delivered I think continual harping on why they didn't do everything the fans could conceive of AFTER seeing the film, mind you, is the definition of Monday morning quarterbacking, done for what is undoubtedly easily described as a winning game.

    Your point stands, but it's kinda aggravating when they've given him so little across the entire existence of the character.

    Giving him the injury at least allowed him to stand (no pun intended) apart from the others. A few lines or a quick scene can easily solidify that.

    It was a 3 hour film but they drove it home with a fat Thor. Surely we could have had that reduced in favor of something minor given to a few minor characters to utilize them rather than simply being there. Though, if it wasn't done up until this point; then it's ridiculous that they'd try and fix it with this film.

    Probably because it's still in the planning stages and they might be saving it for a Phase 5 release.

    Guess so. I’m glad to get confirmation that it’s happening at least. Definitely one of the characters I wanted to get a mini-series.

    I love Don Cheadle as an actor and visually, I'm a huge fan of War Machine but I don't know, for some reason this character holds no emotional attachment to me.

    He definitely needs a strong villain/antagonist to make it work. Perhaps they can bring back Justin Hammer. Sam Rockwell was so damn amazing in that role and I could see a chemistry between both.

    Good writing can make him compelling enough for even his haters.

    A stand alone War Machine series? ... eh... Now if it cameos other mcu characters and introduces new ones while segues into other series/films I'm all for that which is what I think all the D+ series will be about.

    Yeah, hopefully the shows will be like that.
