Disney CEO Bob Chapek teased the upcoming Armor Wars series starring Don Cheadle will “scratch that itch” for Iron Man fans who want more.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is entering a brave, new world following Iron Man’s death in Avengers: Endgame. However, Iron Man‘s corner of the MCU will continue in some form. Tom Holland’s Spider-Man series is relatively close to the Iron Man world, plus we are also getting shows focused on Ironheart and Armor Wars.
Armor Wars is based on an Iron Man comic book storyline originally from the ’80s that focuses on Tony Stark’s concern about others getting ahold of his armor. Now that Stark has passed, Don Cheadle’s James Rhodes will take his place in the story. During a Q&A at the Credit Suisse 23rd Annual Communications Conference, Disney CEO Bob Chapek dropped that Armor Wars will “scratch that itch” for those who might be missing Iron Man.
