BroBible drops some major Don Cheadle news via their podcast Post Credit Pod. The site got exclusive details on Cheadle’s MCU future as the actor revealed via an interview he will be showing up in the upcoming Disney Plus series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier before starring in his own D+ show Armor Wars.
“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. And then these storylines in the movies become storylines in the shows,” Cheadle told BroBible.
“It’s really a 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 [connecting Armor Wars to the MCU] happen. You know, Rhodey shows up in Winter Soldier and Falcon’s show. So, it can be a lot.”-Don Cheadle
No only does Cheadle drop a bomb about his appearance in The Falcon and the Winter Solider, he also reveals some details on what we can expect from Armor Wars and its significance in the upcoming phases of the MCU. Cheadle also offers some insight into when scripting will start as it appears from his comments they are aiming for March.
“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.
“But really, figuring out a way to bridge what’s happening in the comic books with what’s happening on screen in the MCU and how we’re going to make those worlds work, that’s really exciting.”-Don Cheadle
Cheadle seems very excited about the project and its prospect to be not only topical but pull from the very beginnings of the MCU.
