Don Cheadle replaces Terrence Howard in "Iron Man 2"

Woah, didn't see this one coming. Apparently Don Cheadle is going to replace Terrence Howard in Iron Man 2. Why? Financial reasons.

Well, it does suck, and I like Howard far more than Cheadle, who I think is way over rated...

But this isn't the first bad step by marvel (putting out a crappy Hulk movie being the first)

Re: Don Cheadle replaces Terrence Howard in "Iron Man 2"

That's too bad; Howard's role in Iron Man was basically all setup for becoming War Machine in the second film. From an artistic standpoint, it must suck to have run through that paint-by-numbers part only to have no payoff.

That said, at least we know Cheadle has the acting chops. My only concern would be age; he's about as old as Robert Downey Junior, but looks it more. Still, I suppose that's what makeup is for.

EDIT: Oh, and it keeps up the trend of having the supporting cast be Academy Award nominees.

Creditorly yours, the Rent Woman

In unrelated news, Katie Holmes, Terrence Howard, Eric Bana, Jennifer Connelly, Thomas Jane and Billy Dee Williams have been cast as the new Justice League.

Howard looked the part to me because of his build. Cheadle seems scrawny compared to howard

Re: Don Cheadle replaces Terrence Howard in "Iron Man 2"

That's a shame. Still, Cheadle's a good actor, and as The Dark Knight proved, recasting one of the supporting roles doesn't signal a death knell.

Re: Don Cheadle replaces Terrence Howard in "Iron Man 2"

I'm really shocked. I thought Howard was a huge fan of War Machine?

I'll be interesting to see Don Cheadle's take on James Rhodey.

I don't think this will make much of an impact on the sequel. The only actor that's really irreplaceable for this series is RDJ.

I hear this is because Terrence Howard will be playing Lucius Fox in Batman 3.

Wow, sucks. Howard has a wry air of humor about him that perfectly mirrored RDJ's.

Relax everyone. It's just a training exercise.

Wait. It's not? Unfortunate. I thought that he was a good fit.
