Who Is Harrison Ford Playing in Captain America: New World Order

Harrison Ford will be taking over the role of Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The role was formally played by Oscar-winning actor William Hurt, who passed away last year. The Star Wars and Indiana Jones legend is expected to make his MCU debut in Captain America: New World Order before starring in Thunderbolts

What Is Don Cheadle's Next Marvel Project?

Cheadle will be seen next in Secret Invasion which is expected to lead into Armor Wars. Originally, Armor Wars was going to be a series, but it's now a film that is set to star Cheadle. Armor Wars will be inspired by the comic of the same name that sees Tony Stark's technology fall into the wrong hands. 

"If you know anything about the lore, and you've read the comic books, you understand that it's a series that was built around Tony's Stark Tech getting out and Rhodey taking it on to go get this tech back from the bad hands, the bad actors whose hands it is in," Cheadle said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. "And as Marvel does, it's also an opportunity to take the mythology and tip it on its head a little bit and come up with different ways to tell the story, so it's doing that and has done that in spades."

Captain America: New World Order is scheduled to be released in theaters on May 3, 2024.
