Don Cheadle to replace Terence Howard in Iron Man 2

News this week (from the Hollywood Reporter) claimed that will replace Terence Howard as Tony Stark’s best friend “”.

For those not completely up with the , at one point Rhodes takes over the role as Iron Man. So the in-joke when Rhodes stated “next time” as he looked lovingly at the Iron was a nod to that.

Howard and . have . You can believe that they are good . Now I am not going to claim that Don Cheadle is an incapable actor (he is not; far from it), but I can’t see him working as a replacement for Terence Howard.

What bothers me most is that we have not been given a reason why Howard will not be returning. I imagine that it is related to money, but it is a shame that Marvel have decided to drop him so quickly. Iron Man worked due to the sum of it’s pieces. If you take away one of those pieces then there is a great of having the whole stinking mess . Watch this space.
