Marvel’s Armor Wars Being Developed As A Film Instead Of A Series

Iron Man casts a long shadow over the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and a new round of armor-themed content is about to start. One of the planned series, Armor Wars, will reportedly now be a film rather than a Disney+ series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Sources tell THR that in the process of trying to get the story right, the studio realize that a feature was a better fit for the project. With how meticulously Marvel Studios plans out its film slate, that likely pushes the movie out a ways, though we don’t yet know just how far. The film is in early development, and all we really know right now is that Don Cheadle is currently still attached to reprise his role as James “Rhodey” Rhodes, a character he’s played since 2010’s Iron Man 2.

In the Marvel comics, the Armor Wars storyline begins with Tony Stark’s armor designs being stolen and sold to Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell in Iron Man 2). Tony battles villains like Stilt-Man, Shockwave, and Doctor Doom to destroy his stolen designs. Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, we can expect the film to be quite different regardless of whether it retains the planned Armor Wars title, though it will still likely be a showcase for lots of different Iron Man-inspired armor.

The other Iron Man legacy project in the works right now is Ironheart, which follows the story of teenage inventor Riri Williams, who builds an Iron Man-style suit of armor to fight The Hood. Ironheart is already filming, as evidenced by leaked set photos, so that will remain a Disney+ series as Armor Wars migrates to the big screen. Riri will debut ahead of her series in the upcoming film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, while we’ll see Rhodey ahead of Armor Wars in the Secret Invasion series.
