Today, our friends over at the Post Credit Podcast spoke with Don Cheadle about the future of Jim Rhodes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The actor confirmed that he actually will appear in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier as War Machine.
“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. 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.”
This comes before he appears in his own Disney+ series Armor Wars which will see the fallout of Tony Stark’s tech falling into the wrong hands. The actor also reveals that a writer’s room and showrunner will be selected for the show in the next month.
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier debuts on Disney+ this March
