Avengers star Don Cheadle told Jimmy Kimmel how his War Machine costume went through some modifications thanks to Mark Ruffalo.
Avengers: Endgame week wrapped up on Jimmy KImmel Live! Thursday night with a visit from Don Cheadle. The War Machine actor didn’t reveal much about the movie but did share some insight on how he kept from revealing too much while on set.
The Avengers cast has shown fans time and time again that they don’t take themselves too seriously even if they take making superhero movies very seriously. Look no further than the cast reading a Thanos children’s book earlier this week on Jimmy Kimmel Live! for proof.
With the amount of secrecy surrounding Avengers: Endgame it has be hard for interviews with the actors to provide much info on the movie. In fairness, fans don’t need or want to hear too much. We all know what’s at stake following Avengers: Infinity War and we know there is chance this movie will be the last time we see some of our favorite characters.
So with that in mind, Jimmy Kimmel has been trying to find other topics to discuss during Avengers week. During his interview with Don Cheadle we found out that the motion capture suit was giving a little too much away for Cheadle and his castmates Mark Ruffalo and Tom Holland. Being the brains of the Avengers, Ruffalo found a solution that Cheadle quickly adopted:
It’s not clear when exactly Ruffalo and Cheadle began using the “modesty cloths.” If they waited until filming Infinity War or Endgame that still means there were several films in which the actors were very much on display. Maybe that is one reason the entire cast seems so tight-knit and comfortable around each other?
Cheadle also manages to get in a pretty good joke at Ruffalo’s expense. It may have been low hanging fruit but Kimmel and the audience appreciated it. After seeing their interviews together in the run up to Avengers: Infinity War it is clear that there is some solid chemistry between the two actors. Hopefully we get a chance to see more of them onscreen together either inside or outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
On that topic, Kimmel did press Cheadle about a potential War Machine solo movie. But like a good Marvel employee, Cheadle stayed quiet about it and only referenced that there were several discussions ongoing that he couldn’t comment on.
If we do get to see War Machine in his own movie or in a future Marvel movie then at least we know Don Cheadle is comfortable while filming. It may have taken him a few movies but thanks to Mark Ruffalo, Cheadle has found his modesty. Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26.
