War Machine Details Emerge for ‘Iron Man’
In a new interview with SuperHeroHype, actor Terrence Howard gives an inside look at the filming of this summer’s Iron Man, as well as more than a few hints for the future of the franchise.
Howard indicates pretty clearly that his character, a military man who’s initially skeptical of Tony Stark, will eventually take up the white and gray armor. In fact, when asked why he took the role, Howard simply answered, "War Machine."
To get a good sense of what’s in store for his character, Howard said:
You read the comic book? If you read the comic book then you kind’ve know what happens. But you’ll still have to wait ’cause ya’ll ain’t taking away my next two movies.
Howard also said that while he wasn’t a huge comic book guy, his father was:
It was funny, I call my father because he used to be a big "Iron Man" fanatic and he loved the War Machine aspect of it. I asked him, "When you were reading it, did you have any idea that inside your loins you’d have the one putting that on?" [laughs]
