A new Marvel film starring a beloved character has been announced and will hit theatres, much to the delight of MCU fans. Don Cheadle is officially preparing to don his metal flying suit once more for a brand-new, heart-pounding journey.
That’s right, Cheadle is getting his own superhero film after making his acting debut in 2010 as Colonel James “Rhodey” Rhodes in the Iron Man ensemble of Iron Man 2. We’re not sure about the rest of you Stark Industry fans, but we personally can’t wait to see the Colonel back in action and kicking butt.
But you might be wondering where exactly Armour Wars fits in the MCU Timeline with so many more Marvel movies on the way. So, we looked everywhere to find all the solutions and provide them to you. Here, we go over Armour Wars’ release date, storyline, cast, and other details to give you all the information you need to know about the upcoming film from War Machine.
Armour Wars Plot
We do have a general idea of the Armour Wars plot thanks to an official synopsis made available by Marvel, and spoiler alert: stolen Stark technology is involved.
The story of Armour Wars, according to the studio, is based on “what happens if Tony Stark’s tech falls into the wrong hands? Don Cheadle returns to the role as James Rhodes – AKA War Machine – who must face these tech consequences in this classic Marvel story.”
The idea of the next movie is provided by this description, although, let’s be honest, it is very light on specifics. The stolen “tech” might be anything from Stark Industries as there is no mention of the movie villain. Many MCU fans, however, now think that the Armour Wars story will be based on a seven-issue Iron Man arc with the same name after conducting some research.
In the comic books released in 1978 and 1979, Tony Stark learns that Spymaster stole his technology and subsequently sold it to Justin Hammer. Tony Stark obviously passed away after the events of Avengers: End Game in 2019, therefore if this theory is correct, Colonel James “Rhodey” Rhodes would assume the role of the primary protagonist.
Armour Wars Cast
A handful of MCU alums are expected to be in the cast of Armour Wars (at least, we hope so). Don Cheadle, who plays Colonel James “Rhodey” Rhodes, is one candidate that comes to mind. Walton Goggins, best known for his role as Ant-Sonny Man’s Burch, is also anticipated to participate.
Other names are still being withheld at this time. The internet is rife with rumors about prospective stars who may join the cast, though.
Many believe that Justin Hammer, who was last seen in Iron Man 2, will appear as Sam Rockwell in Armour Wars. This is because the movie’s name alludes to a certain arc in the comic book we referenced previously that stars the character.
Armour Wars Release date
Armour Wars has not yet been given a release date. But we do know that the earliest time frame for the action film is sometime around 2024.
This is a result of the fact that Armour Wars’ production has included juggling a number of balls. The idea was initially intended to be a Disney Plus Marvel series. However, the plot is now being revised and turned into a full-length feature film.
