During Marvel Studios’ showcase at the D23 Expo, Don Cheadle confirmed that filming for the Disney+ series Tank wars would begin next year, then revealed a new logo for the series.
Cheadle’s appearance came as part of Marvel Studios’ Disney+ content slate, with the actor confirming that filming for the series – which will be six episodes in length – would begin sometime next year. As for his place in the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe, Cheadle revealed that Tank wars would take place right after the events of the Disney+ series Secret invasion.
A new logo for Tank wars was also showcased, bringing it more in line with other Marvel Studios projects. You can see the new logo below:
Originally written by David Michelinie and Bob Layton and running for seven issues from December 1987 to June 1988, the comic centered on the inventive genius Tony Stark as he discovers that the same top-secret technology he used to create the Iron Man armor, now in the hands of several deadly supervillains and wracked with guilt over the evil they have done using the suit. In the face of objections from his government, friends, colleagues, and other superheroes, Stark vows to use Iron Man’s power to end this evil and take back what is his.
With Robert Downey Jr.’s Stark dead in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the two-time Oscar nominee seemingly stepping back from the role, it’s currently unclear how the series will approach the material or update it with Cheadles Rhodes at the center of the story .
