Armor Wars’ Don Cheadle Weighs In On Potentially Replacing Robert Downey Jr. As

The Marvel Cinematic Universe looks a lot different these days, as key figures like Iron Man, Black Widow, and Captain America are now out of the picture. Phase Four has been dealing with their absences in the present-day timeline. Of course, Anthony Mackie’s Falcon has taken up Cap’s mantle. So it’s only natural that some might wonder would think that Don Cheadle’s James Rhodes — Tony Stark’s right-hand man, could succeed him as the Armored Avenger. With that Cheadle, who’s set to return as War Machine in the Armor Wars series, weighed in on potentially replacing his former co-star in the role.

The veteran Marvel star addressed the notion during his interview with Extra. Don Cheadle was addressing his return in the Samuel L. Jackson-led Disney+ series Secret Invasion (which we know a few things about) when talked turned to him possibly becoming Iron Man in the MCU. And based on the Oscar nominee’s comments, it doesn’t seem like he’s totally sold on the idea of his character taking on the Iron Man mantle:

I don’t know. I mean, I think that Rhodey is his own dude. I don’t think that anyone can really step into the Tony Stark Iron Man shoes. I think he did that as well as anyone could ever do it. But I think we’re going to learn a lot more about what Rhodey does want and who he is and what his sort of place in the firmament of the MCU will ultimately be.
