We’ve heard from various actors that false scripts to fake scenes and not being involved in the entire production process have left them in the dark as to how ‘Avengers: Endgame‘ plays out and now Don Cheadle is confirming that sentiment. The actors have yet to see a final cut of the film and Cheadle agrees with many others who have said that they just don’t have the full story.
Of his character, he did share that Rhodes has a “”what-the-eff-is-happening” [attitude,] more than maybe the rest of them do, given his background. But it’s a trial by fire, and he’s quickly adapted to what [the threat] is, rather than what he wishes it were.”
Not only that, but he isn’t quick to trust either when Captain Marvel shows up saying, “There’s a fair bit of … I don’t know if suspicion is the word, but he’s definitely circumspect about who this new person is and why should they listen to her.”
As to why Cheadle doesn’t know what is going on?
“You just sort of get your part, and some explanation about what came before, and what goes after and kind of how things fit in. But it was still a pretty malleable process while we were shooting it, you know? We knew that things were going to be changing, even after they told us what it was going to be.”

He was asked if the actors were being faked out or filming fake scenes and that wasn’t even why it was confusing, the reason he shared was:
“No, they’re kind of like, “This folds into this, and then it’s coming out of this, but we may change that, and we may get rid of this whole sequence.””
Cheadle finally gave up trying to figure it out and told the directors, “Okay guys, just tell me what to do, and please don’t make me look stupid when it comes out.” I don’t think anyone could really blame him with what they were putting the cast through for secrecy’s sake.
