He didn't get so much as a mention in Avengers, but Rhodey may make it into the sequel.
Don Cheadle, in an interview with USA Today, when asked about doing work for the next Avengers movie, had this to say:
I have a production meeting (for the movie) after I get off the phone with you actually," he says, adding that time management is key to staying "sane" with so many projects in various stages of production.
He mentions it so casually I thought perhaps I had missed some piece of news, but the only other thing I see is a Bleeding Cool rumor posted today in addition to this interview. But I'd probably go with Don Cheadle as a source over anyone else. But just in case Cheadle is going crazy by juggling too much work, we have it from BC's source as well.
The big question is, will he be cannon fodder for Joss Whedon when he searched for another beloved character to kill off? How do you think they will fit James Rhodes and possibly War Machine (please not Iron Patriot) into the Avengers picture?

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea. Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California. When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead. Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim. If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
