As we proceed into Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this varied superhero world is beginning to be reinforced more since the main characters have some experience working together in The Avengers.  Fans are delighted to see how Tony Stark, Thor, Steve Rogers, etc. work together in future films.  For instance, we take a look at how Don Cheadle‘s Jim Rhodes from the Iron Man sequels gets in touch with his alter ego War Machine that will be getting a great amount of screen-time in the upcoming sequel.

Cheadle recently did an interview about Iron Man 3, and he spoke about the prospect of him appearing in The Avengers 2 or Captain America: The Winter Soldier, hinting that “conversations have been happening” in regards to the Avengers sequel.

As writer/director Joss Whedon is writing the script for The Avengers 2, Cheadle was asked if he has started pitching the filmmkaer on ways that Rhodey could be involved with the follow up:

“No I have not, but I know that [there are] conversations that have been happening, so we’ll see what happens.  If that’s able to happen and it makes sense for the story, I’m sure it’ll happen, and if not it’s fine.  It has to work within the world and sort of the mythology of the whole Marvel universe.”

It’s uncertain if Cheadle means to say that conversations are happening regarding him appearing in The Avengers 2, or if he’s talking generally about putting the roster together for the sequel.  In addition, Cheadle was asked if he’ll be acting in the Captain America sequel, and this is what he said:

I think I’m gonna go to the set, so maybe if I bring the suit in my trunk I’ll just walk on.”

Here is the quick interview:

Question: Have you started pitching Joss Whedon on ways that Rhodey can be involved in the Avengers sequel?

DON CHEADLE:

No I have not, but I know that [there are] conversations that have been happening, so we’ll see what happens.  If that’s able to happen and it makes sense for the story, I’m sure it’ll happen, and if not it’s fine.  It has to work within the world and sort of the mythology of the whole Marvel universe.

They’re filming Captain America 2 right now, is there any chance you’re showing up?

CHEADLE:

I think I’m gonna go to the set, so maybe if my suit is in the trunk I’ll just walk on.
