It is no surprise that Marvel fans have a great eye for detail because Marvel of course has a habit of giving a bunch of Easter eggs. Well, this eye for detail has recently discovered a major VFX mistake in War Machine’s Endgame suit. Reddit user Choice-Tutor minor mistake in Avengers: Endgame involving the specific armor used for War Machine in one scene. The scene in question is when the Nebula from 2014 begins short-circuiting and showing Rhodey in a hologram.
In Avengers: Endgame, Rhodey is wearing a new suit, the Mark VI, which he is correctly wearing in this shot. As an added note, he’s only mirrored from the viewers’ perspective, but not from Nebula and Gamora’s perspective. The mistake comes with this split-second close-up shot where War Machine is wearing his armor from Avengers: Infinity War, the Mark IV. It’s noticeable due to the armor’s bulkier design and certain patterns seen on the suit, particularly the shape of the armor’s center light.
However, this newly discovered mistake seems far less significant, only noticed over a year after the film has been released. It could be that for that closeup shoot, Rhodey’s armor was potentially still the same as it was in Avengers: Infinity War, but for whatever reason, this shot was missed and his armor wasn’t replaced with the newest design and model.
Don Cheadle confirms War Machine will appear in Marvel Studios’ upcoming Disney+ series. During an interview with BroBible, actor Don Cheadle discussed his MCU future as James ‘Rhodey’ Rhodes aka War Machine. It was during this interview that Cheadle confirmed that he’ll appear in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. His role in the series was not previously reported, but there was some speculation about him returning for the show. Cheadle didn’t reveal how big of a role War Machine will have in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier though. We also did not get to see much War Machine in the new trailer anywhere, so we can expect ourselves a cameo by Cheadle, say during a fight where Sam & Bucky both are taking a hit. Sam is without Captain America and Rhodey is without Iron Man, their shared loss of their best friends is something The Falcon and The Winter Soldier could explore.
