During Disney’s Investor Day it was announced that Don Cheadle is heading to Disney+ for a new Marvel Studios series entitled Armor Wars, but it seems we’ll be seeing War Machine on the streaming service before then as the actor has revealed to The Post Credit Podcast that Rhodey will be making an appearance in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
“That’s some of the fun of the MCU, that we all get to show up in each other’s stories, and there are ways that we’re cross-platforming these characters, and they become storylines, sometimes, in the movies,” said Cheadle. “And then these storylines in the movies become storylines in the shows. It’s really fun and interesting and, by all imagination, completely open-ended – this can go anywhere. It’s great. I can’t wait to get in the room with the writers and figure out how all those things happen. You know, Rhodey shows up in Winter Soldier and Falcon’s show.”
Asked if he could share anything about Armor Wars, Cheadle responded that: “The death of Tony Stark, I’m pretty sure, will play a role in the series. 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.”
