Marvel Developing War Machine TV Series With Don Cheadle

You could argue that Iron Man's best pal Rhodey has often been sidelined over the past decade of the MCU, but fans of Don Cheadle's armored Avenger may be pleased to know that we're hearing rumblings of War Machine getting his own vehicle in the near future.

We Got This Covered has been informed that Marvel’s developing a War Machine TV series for the Disney Plus streaming service. With Tom Hiddleston returning for Loki, Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany coming back for WandaVision and Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan set to star in Falcon and Winter Soldier, it’s not a surprise to hear that Don Cheadle is expected to reprise his role in the series.

It’s also worth pointing out that a 4Chan leak back in January shared a lot about Marvel’s plans for Disney Plus, much of which has been proven true in the months since then. The leak claimed, among other things, that a War Machine show was in the works. It even teased that the plot would see Rhodey on a mission to recover some stolen Stark tech.

We don’t have any intel to confirm or deny what the series will be about, but our source is telling us that War Machine will be the next MCU character to head up his own high budget miniseries on the platform.

We previously brought you the news that Mark Ruffalo could also be set to helm his own Disney Plus show that’ll team Bruce Banner up with She-Hulk. If these two series are set after Avengers: Endgame, it may tell us that at least this pair of heroes will escape the movie unscathed enough to get their own shows. But then again, Marvel does like to hop around the timeline, so who knows what fate truly awaits War Machine when Endgame hits theaters on April 26th.
