Don Cheadle Comments on if War Machine Would Become the Next Iron Man
Shield Wars star Don Cheadle stays hesitant about the possibility of War Machine turning into the new Iron Man in the Wonder Cinematic Universe. It would be a move similar to Sam Wilson taking over for Captain America in Steve Rogers’ nonappearance. It has additionally occurred in the comics, with Rhodey first donning Iron Man’s covering in Iron Man #170, distributed by Wonder in 1983. In any case, while Tony Stark’s death in the MCU still weighs vigorously at the forefront of Rhodey’s thoughts, Cheadle claims the possibility of Rhodes taking over as the new Iron Man is new to him when asked about it at the D23 Expo.
“It’s the first I’ve known about that, so I surmise no comment,” Cheadle tells Extra. As for it potentially occurring from now on, he said, “I don’t be aware. Well, I think that Rhodey is his own fella. I don’t think that anyone can truly step into the Tony Stark, Iron Man shoes. I think he did that as well as anyone might at any point do. But I think we will gain tons of useful knowledge more about what Rhodey does want and what his identity is and what his sort of spot in the firmament of MCU will ultimately be. I honestly don’t realize substantially more than you know. That’s not true, but I can’t tell.” He concluded by saying he knows “there is a future” for him in the MCU.
As for Tony Stark’s death and what it means for Rhodey, Cheadle told ComicBook.com at D23 that fans will track down Rhodey’s head “At an altogether different spot in a way that is something that I can’t talk about,” when Defensive layer Wars starts, “but it’s going to extremely astounding for a lot of individuals. Furthermore, the great thing is there’s just going to be such a lot of opportunity to glean some significant experience about him and for him to find out about himself and for us, ideally, to truly have the option to get behind what compels him tick.”
Cheadle additionally brushed against being a heritage character while examining what it resembles being a MCU stalwart among such countless new additions. “I think that’s what’s the fun of it, how broad it can be,” he says. “We don’t lose the old character, but we acquire new characters, then we get to bring the newer and more established characters together and that creates its own sort of thing. So that’s the best time of being in these shows, the opportunity to cross-pollenate each other’s projects and find ways that these relationships continue to work and conflicts that we continue to concoct, and I think they work really hard of it, continuously making it interesting, exciting, and things you can’t actually anticipate.”
