Disney’s Armour Wars upgrade from limited series to a movie…

October 1st, 2022 by Marc Comments

Big shake-up for the Armour Wars series as it’s now been changed… to a movie.

During Comic-Con and D23 there was a lot of people wondering why Armour Wars was not mentioned at all and now we may know.

The story of Stark Technology falling into the wrong hands and being left to Don Cheadle’s Colonel James “Rhodey” Rhodes, AKA War Machine to fix it was originally set to be told over six episodes but now it seems we’ll be heading to the cinema to see it, rather than tuning in weekly to Disney+.

Sources say the studio was committed in getting the story told the right way and in that process realized that a feature was better suited for the project. Like all Marvel movies, it is intended for a theatrical release.

The movie will still be penned by lead writer Yassir Lester.

There is no word on when the movie will film, where it fits into the current MCU timeline or who will direct it but we know that Cheadle will star.

We’re hearing rumours that Paul Bettany’s White Vision and Sam Rockwell’s Justin Hammer will both return and we’re ok with that… especially Rockwell, we need more Justin Hammer in the MCU – there’s an opening for him to become the evil Tony Stark and we’re here for every bit of it!

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….
