Marvel’s ‘Armor Wars’ to be Developed as a Feature Film, Instead of a Limited Series

Rhodey’s (Don Cheadle) new adventure just got a new armor, as Marvel Studios will develop Armor Wars as a feature film, instead of a limited streaming series. The project was first announced during Disney’s 2020 Investor Day as part of Marvel Studios’ expansion into television, alongside shows such as WandaVision and Loki.

Yassir Lester, who had been previously hired as a showrunner back when the title was intended for the small screen, will remain as a screenwriter for the movie. There is no one currently attached as a director, as the team involved with the project were recently told that development would be pushed back due to the change.

Armor Wars was scheduled to begin filming next year, before its development began taking a new approach. Sources say the studio led by Kevin Feige wanted to bring the story to life in the best way possible, even if that meant changing its release format. Don Cheadle remains attached to return in the role of James Rhodes, a character he’s been playing since 2010’s Iron Man 2.

The original Armor Wars storyline was published in Iron Man comics between 1987 and 1988. While the new movie might share a title with the story, it doesn’t necessarily mean both versions might share more than the name, just like the studio has done with comic book narratives such as Age of Ultron, Infinity War and What If…?
