MTV talked to Bob Layton, a co-writer of the Iron Man comic book whose notable input was War Machine. And, he’s been hinting at a possible War Machine spin-off movie:
“I think there are a variety of reasons to have the War Machine character in there. If they’re doing the ‘Avengers’ film, they always have the option of using War Machine instead of Iron Man depending upon what happens contractually. I’m just speculating, I have no idea… But there’s always the possibility that if it does well, it can spinoff. Because obviously there’s a different character and a different motivation with War Machine than there is with Tony Stark.”

Well, the War Machine movie hasn’t been officially announced yet by Marvel. But it would make sense to develop a spin-off. I’m sure a large public would be glad to see a War Machine movie!
Besides Don Cheadle, who’s replacing Terrence Howard as Jim Rhodes aka War machine, is an actor with a lot of experience, and he has enough charisma to have the lead role in such a blockbuster.
Let’s hope that this War Machine movie will be greenlit one day!
