Don Cheadle Unaware of Arnold Schwarzenegger's MCU Debut Rumors in Armor Wars as Titanium Man: "I'll ask him next time I see him"

Currently, most of the major names in Hollywood can be found under the umbrella of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But looks like the MCU’s going to pick a few more as it is rumored for a long time that the Terminator fame can join the superhero universe. Arnold Schwarzenegger is speculated to be joining the Marvel ship in their upcoming Armor Wars movie.

The rumors about Titanium Man started floating around the internet last year in the summer when various reports claimed that Arnold Schwarzenegger can helm the role. Further, when the question was asked to the Armor Wars lead Don Cheadle for confirmation, he also acted as a stranger to the rumors.

Armor Wars was initially planned as a Disney+ series but later it was reported that it will be developed as a movie. While Don Cheadle’s War Machine and Stark Tech are expected to be the main highlights of the show, Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s name also popped up as the potential Titanium Man.

During an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, when Cheadle was asked if he knows anything about Titanium’s appearance in the MCU, the War Machine fame looked completely unaware.

“I think he is in for Titanium Man. Is this a serious question? No, he, um, I don’t know about that. I’ll ask him next time I see him.”

Although Don Cheadle admitted to not even knowing any bit about Titanium Man, we have often seen in the past how the MCU interviews can push boundaries to make you believe anything. So it can’t be assured if he pulled an Andrew Garfield there or if he is really unaware of the existence of Titanium Man. You can watch the full interview here:

Titanium Man or Boris Bullski is a former KGB agent in Marvel Comics who was introduced in 1965’s Tales of Suspense. The character prepares a Titanium suit for himself to go against Iron Man. According to the speculations if Arnold Schwarzenegger appears in the MCU flick, then it would make Mr. Olympia another major name who appeared in both the DC and the Marvel ships. The Predator star also acted as Mr. Freeze in Batman & Robin. 

But surprisingly, Schwarzenegger also took to an interview recently to speak about his Marvel appearance.

Arnold Schwarzenegger was recently spotted in the Netflix series FUBAR. While he was busy promoting his latest series, the True Lies actor spoke out on the Marvel speculations in an interview with Men’s Health.

“If the role is right!”

Although he didn’t reveal much, the statement proves that the muscle man is open to playing any character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe if it’s well-written. Moreover, this also indicates that we might spot the 75-year-old actor someday with his son-in-law and Star-Lord fame Chris Pratt sharing an MCU frame.
