Captain America: Civil War is arguably the most anticipated film of 2016. With the focus heavily on the impending conflict between Tony Stark and Steve Rogers, we are also met with a host of important characters that have stolen some of the attention. From Bucky to Black Panther, and even Spiderman it would seem we are going to have a lot to chew on in this film, but what about War Machine? Well it turns out, Tony’s old friend Rhodey may have a much larger role in the upcoming movie than initially anticipated.

In an interview with SuperHeroHype Don Cheadle shed some light on his role in the film.

I never know what it’s going to be and they keep their cards very close to their breast with Marvel. I never know where the character’s going to go, but he’s become more and more and in the next one, you’ll see that what happens to Rhodey is a little bit more intense and pivotal to what happens in the rest of the stories.

It may not appear that he is revealing all that much here, but this could mean that Rhodey is going to be one the lynchpins of the story. There is a lot happening in this film already, with Thunderbolt Ross, Iron Man, Captain America, Black Panther, Spider Man, Black Widow, and a host of others, how big could War Machines role truly be right?

That being said we may have already seen what happens to Rhodey in the first trailer for the film. There is a brief image of Tony holding his fallen friend with an absolutely defeated look on his face. Could this mean that Rhodey will not make it out of this film? I guess we’ll find out in due time.
