The television fiction War Machine, which will premiere on Disney +, has already found its main screenwriter. Don Cheadle will star in it, expanding the mythology about the character.
Marvel Studios changed completely after Avengers: Endgame, a scenario in which Iron Man died and in which the study argued for starting a new stage without Robert Downey Jr . Through new films and series, Kevin Feige and his family have set a stage with new heroes and heroines, substantial changes and an obsession to maintain the legacy of the past while looking to the future. Now is when we know that Amor Wars, the series starring War Machine, will be fundamental in this context (via Cinemania )
Surviving the loss of Iron Man: Marvel's Future
Iron Man’s sacrifice wiped out Thanos, yes, but it also dismantled the Avengers. Disney has thought on this issues in productions such as Wandavision or Falcon and the Winter Soldier, series for Disney + that approaches this world without the most powerful heroes on Earth and that raises new questions and ideas. While those who survived the battle against the Mad Titan rebuild and get used to the current scenario, little by little we know what will happen to the supposed heirs of Iron Man. We know that one of them will be Ironheart, represented by Riri Williams and that it will be embodied by Dominique Thorne, appearing in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever for the first time
The other project that will be in charge of addressing Tony Stark’s legacy is Armor Wars, a series that we knew quite little about and that will tell us what role the War Machine, the incombustible James ‘ Rhodey ‘ Rhodes, plays in all this. Rhodes was Tony’s best friend, and although he has made cameos and appearances in numerous films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it will be the first time that he has the highest-profile. Armor Wars will premiere on Disney + and as they explain in The Hollywood Reporter, they finally have a trusted scriptwriter for the project.
It will be Yassi Lester, a former comedian and close friend of Cheadle, who has gone from comedian to actor and screenwriter. Without going any further, Lester wrote the lines for Cheadle on Black Monday and has been a regular contributor to productions like HBO’s Girls. He has recently signed for Disney + the comedy Earth to Ned, so you could say that everything is at home. Rumors? It is said that Justin Hammer played by Sam Rockwell would return after Iron Man 2, inviting us to know a plot similar to that of the original comics, in which Iron Man faced a legion of enemies likeBeetle, Controller, Crimson Dynamo, Doctor Doom, Mauler, Professor Power, Shockwave, Stilt-Man or Titanium Man. In the adaptation, it is speculated that War Machine will recruit Iron Man’s adolescent protégé, Riri Williams, opening the possibility of her solo series afterward after proving her worth.
It is still too early to know something about the hypothetical release date or the plot, beyond the enormous challenge that it will be for Rhodes to get ahead in a gray world full of great threats without the support of his friend.
