With all the projects Marvel Studios has announced lately, it’s kind of hard to keep track of everything that’s coming in the next few years for the MCU. There are a few standouts that are still in the early stages of development, we’ve been anxiously waiting for some kind of update. Luckily, that day has come, as Armor Wars star Don Cheadle has offered an update in a recent interview with BroBible. He will reprise the role of James Rhodes, who has to face Tony Stark’s biggest nightmare. At some point, his tech seems to have gotten into the wrong hands, which could connect to Falcon and the Winter Soldier for which he confirmed an appearance in the same interview. While the show doesn’t have an official release date yet, it seems that they are aiming for March to start writing the scripts.
He also offers a little insight into what we can expect in Rhodey’s journey moving ahead past the events of Endgame.
Where we’ve been sort of progressing Rhodey—even in the last film where he’s now up again and he’s now walking again and he’s now mobile again—so as the technology continues to develop and we keep making innovations in the suit and what happens, I imagine there’s gonna be another elevation and another way that we’re going to keep digging into that part of Rhodey.
Of course, a story focused on the iconic Armor War storyline will have some connection to Tony Stark. There is also the confirmed series focused on Ironheart that may have a larger role moving forward. We could expect some kind of news on the head writer in the coming month. There are still a lot of different aspects we have yet to explore within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, especially after the events of the Blip. WandaVision gave us a small glimpse of how it might continue being an important factor in the story moving forward, so the five-year gap could’ve also given many of Tony’s enemies a chance to upgrade. It seems that Tony’s prediction in Iron Man 2 on when they might catch up has finally come true.
