After revealing that his character Rhodey aka War Machine would be appearing in Marvel’s next Disney+ series The Falcon & The Winter Soldier, Don Cheadle has given Entertainment Tonight an idea when production of his own solo series Armor Wars will begin. Stating things will begin filming in “a couple of months”, however, didn’t mention where that will be taking place.
CHEADLE: “It’s going to be dope. We’re really going to have a chance to explore a lot of stuff about [James] Rhodes. I mean, you look at what we’ve done so far, there’s a lot left to be explored. So I think there’s a lot of real estate that we’re going to dig into.It’s going to be just fully wide open.”
“We’re going to start filming in a couple months and we’ll see.”
The series will focus on War Machine cracking down on Tony Stark’s technology getting into the wrong hands, the comic book it takes inspiration from included Sam Rockwell’s Justin Hammer giving Marvel Studios a big opening to bring the character back to the MCU.
The assumption is that it would be shooting in Atlanta, Georgia as with the other Disney_ shows but it’s odd that with it starting so soon they haven’t announced writers, showrunner or director for Armor Wars at this point.
