There’s always these little tidbits from the actors saying this or that and just trying not to reveal too much, lest they get in trouble.  So, here’s another one of those tidbits from actor Don Cheadle, who plays James Rhodes, or War Machine, as the picture above somewhat indicates.  Here, he explains to E! what Tony Stark is dealing with this time around, which takes place after the events of ‘The Avengers’:

“The tone is there’s more of an existential journey that Tony’s on trying to come to grips with this thing that he created that is creating him, too. Who’s really in control? And the toll that it takes on his relationships. And then a lot of s–t blows up. Which is what you want in Iron Man 3.”

In another interview with Enstarz, he talks more about the relationship between his character and Tony Stark:

“I hope that it performs to those levels. We did a little piece of it at Comic-Con and people went crazy. The script is good. We’re doing a couple re-shoots next week, but I’m encouraged.

I’m not supposed to say that he kills Robert Downey Jr.’s character. Is that a spoiler? That would be a spoiler. You knew that was coming. You read the comic books. I will just say that the buddy relationship that these guys have gets tighter. The third act set piece for the big finale is bigger and badder. It’s just a lot more.”
