    Andy Cohen,” Terrence Howard said that Marvel “could have a
    huge franchise” if he returned to play James Rhodes/War Machine
    in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Actor Terrence Howard has zero interest in ever returning to the
Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In an interview with Andy Cohen on “Watch What Happens Live” on
Thursday, Howard said that fans still ask whether he would return
to his role as James Rhodes, a.k.a. War Machine, in the Marvel

Cheadle so much and I love what he’s done, I still hear a lot of
fans asking, ‘Am I going to come back and be War Machine? Am I

huge franchise off of it, but f— ‘em.”

Howard played Rhodes, the Air Force pilot who is Tony Stark’s
best friend, in 2008’s “Iron Man.” But he was replaced by Cheadle
in 2010’s “Iron Man 2” (Howard claimed that he was

ever since, having appeared in “Iron Man 3,” “Avengers: Age of
Ultron,” “Captain America: Civil War,” and most recently
“Avengers: Infinity War,” where he survived the Thanos

combined at the worldwide box office.
