Armor Wars Could See More Delays

Although Armor Wars saw so many delays since it was announced, the potential date it has now got will make sure it follows right after the release of Fantastic Four. No matter how many more delays the movie faces, that is one change that will not be occurring. However, because of the ongoing writers’ strike, there is a high chance to see quite a few changes and delays for the project according to how long it goes on.

The Department of Damage Control, or the D.O.D.C. has been rather active since the events of Avengers and Armor Wars will be showcasing just how dangerous it can get if Tony Stark’s precious technology goes into the wrong hands. Furthermore, it will also be dealing with how Don Cheadle’s James Rhodey handles the entire situation. Interestingly enough, Samuel L. Jackson’s Secret Invasion also directly influences the events of the movie. War Machine will be seen facing an entire army of Iron Man suits. The topic of how Stark’s technology fell into the wrong hands has previously been discussed but not on a scale the fans had been hoping for and this movie provides that.

Armor Wars will be available to watch in theatres from 25th July 2025.
