RUMOUR: Sam Rockwell set to return as Justin Hammer for Armour Wars series on Disney+

February 2nd, 2021 by Marc Comments

We know now that one of the upcoming Disney+ Marvel shows is set to star Don Cheadle as Rhodey Rhodes, best known from the Iron Man movies, but we know little else.

Until now when a very exciting couple of rumours have popped up.

The series, as far as we know so far, will focus on Rhodey basically taking over the Iron Man role and taking on some of Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jnr) old enemies.

Of course, like us, many fans have hoped we would see Justin Hammer, played wonderfully by the (so far) criminally underused Sam Rockwell in Iron Man II and the Marvel One-Shot All Hail The King… and according to scooper Daniel Ritchman is reporting that Hammer will indeed be the main villain in the series.

On top of this, as we speculated here, actress Dominique Thorne will make her debut as Riri Williams AKA Iron Heart, a young girl who builds the MCU’s most advanced suit of armour since Tony Stark himself.

This is all pretty exciting news and, if they can keep up the quality of WandaVision (which is blowing our minds so far) then we’re in for a lot of fun with this one.

PS it’ll be fantastic to have Hammer back in the MCU because an evil Tony Stark is such an exciting prospect for an MCU villain.

Thoughts? I want to hear them all.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
