marvel’s Armor Wars Star Don Cheadle has questioned Arnold Schwarzenegger appearing in the film.

Originally planned as a Disney+ series, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige recently announced that Cheadle will be getting a solo movie based on the classic comic book storyline of the same name.

There was later speculation that Arnold might have a villainous role in Marvel’s Armor Wars as Titanium Man, a Soviet-era counterpart to Iron Man with more devious ambitions.

Cheadle was asked about the rumors during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live and gave a puzzled answer.

“I think he’s up for Titanium Man,” Cheadle replied first.

He then asked confusedly, “Is this a serious question?”

Cheadle admitted he had never heard of Titanium Man, with Kimmel pointing out, “That’s a bad sign.”

When Kimmel explained Titanium Man’s origins as Iron Man’s Soviet counterpart, Cheadle jokingly added that the fictional Aluminum Girl might appear as well.

“I don’t know about [that rumour]”, explained Cheadle. “I will ask him the next time I see him.”
