Last week a rumor circulated that Don Cheadle‘s James Rhodes, aka Rhodey, aka Iron Patriot, aka War Machine, aka the best part of Iron Man 3 (maybe I’m biased by my love of the Cheadlemeister, but it happens, OK?) would be in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. The rumor was particularly unfounded, so we kept it in the back of our The Mary Sue hivemind, hoping that it would come true but not daring to anticipate that The Cheads would put in an appearance lest we face the ultimate disappointment of having yet another Cheadle-less movie come out in 2015. (There are going to be far, far too many of them as it is.)
Turns out we needn’t have worried. The Don of Cheadleville will indeed be in The Avengers sequel. Now it’s your turn, Star Wars. You know what to do.
