Though many expected Armor Wars to be the next big property to bring back James Rhodes, it seems that War Machine will be returning much sooner than expected. This is a welcome surprise though, connecting The Falcon and the Winter Soldier to the wider MCU even more so.
During an interview on BroBible’s Post-Credit Podcast, War Machine actor Don Cheadle revealed that he will appear in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
When talking about the limitless crossover potential that the MCU offers, Cheadle stated James ‘Rhodey’ Rhodes “shows up” in the upcoming Disney+ series
“It’s really a fun and interesting and, by all imagination, completely open-ended — this can go anywhere. It’s great, I can’t wait to get in the room with the writers and figure out how all those things happen. You know, Rhodey shows up in Winter Soldier and Falcon’s show. So, it can be a lot.”
The last time fans saw the character in Avengers: Endgame, he was sporting armor much more reminiscent of his Iron Patriot get-up from Iron Man 3. With the U.S. government forcing a rebranding for the armored hero back in 2013, could he have a say in all of this U.S. Agent business?
