Don Cheadle talks Shane Black, ‘Iron Man 3’ and appearing ‘Avengers 2’

Don Cheadle returns as Tony Stark’s friend and fellow hero, War Machine, in Iron Man 3.

The star begins by comparing teh experience under new director Shane Black compared to Jon Favreau, who directed the first two films.

There’s a lot of improv that happens, but the improv is in sort of a controlled playground.”

Fans can expect a lot more humor in this chapter, especially with star Robert Downey Jr.

“There’s more of it. I think if you look at the second movie, when we’re in the Japanese garden at the end, you kind of see where it’s headed. You see us starting that whole process at that point, and I think this is just sort of the further culmination of that. And I think there’s more that could be mined, and we’ll see if there’s anything that’s going to happen afterward. But yeah, it was nice to have the opportunity to really find some more colors in their relationship.”

Fans are pointing to comments by Cheadle in the past that he may appear in Avengers 2.

 “Who mentioned that? Oh wait, me. [Laughs] The movies, the family of Marvel movies, have been faithful to their own mythology, not necessarily to what the comic book dictates. You know, in the comic book Rhodey is in the Marines, Iron Patriot is a completely different character. So there’s a contained sort of mythology that the movies answer to, and that’s something that Marvel is continuously creating. So yeah, he might show up, I don’t know. I’d be down for it.”

While the House of Lies star is up for the film, he jokes he’s not the decision maker. “Just park yourself outside of Kevin Feige’s house.”
