Don Cheadle talks ‘Iron Man 2’ and War Machine
From Black Voices:
Having tackled biopics (‘Hotel Rwanda,’ ‘Talk to Me’) and blockbusters (‘Ocean’s Eleven,’ ‘Crash’), Don Cheadle is about to gain a new fan base as ‘Iron Man 2’ is set to be released on May 7.
In the sequel, the world is aware that billionaire inventor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is the armored super hero Iron Man. Under pressure from the government, the press and the public to share his technology with the military, Tony is unwilling to divulge the secrets behind the Iron Man armor because he fears the information will slip into the wrong hands. With Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) and James “Rhodey” Rhodes (played by Cheadle) at his side, Tony forges new alliances and confronts powerful new forces.
In replacing Terrence Howard as Rhodey/ War Machine, Cheadle could be in a position to have Marvel start a spin-off film for him, in addition to an appearance in the forthcoming ‘Avengers’ film.
Black Voices caught up with the Kansas City native as he spoke about his role and where the future lies for his character.
