Marvel Has Finally Confirmed Iron Man's Real MCU Replacement

The MCU has confirmed, via Secret Invasion, that James “Rhodey” Rhodes is the ideal replacement for the late Iron Man in the forthcoming Armor Wars. Rhodey has been part of the MCU since its beginning in 2008’s Iron Man, rescuing Tony Stark from Ten Rings captivity and becoming one of the first to learn of his newfound superhero alter ego. Like his comic counterpart, Rhodey soon became War Machine, using a weapons-laden suit designed by Tony Stark and having numerous appearances throughout the MCU. Rhodey has remained a major MCU superhero even after Avengers: Endgame, but Rhodey is now, more than ever, poised to serve as the new Iron Man.
