Don Cheadle will replace Terrence Howard in Iron Man 2
Howard is out and Cheadle in Iron Man 2.
Back when Iron Man came out, Terrence Howard was very excited about the direction his character – Tony Stark sidekick Jim Rhodes – would take in the sequel, telling us he was already thinking about how he would play the character in Iron Man 2.
Well it seems all that talk was in vain, with the actor now dropping out of the movie due, according to The Hollywood Reporter, to “financial differences, among other reasons.”
Marvel has quickly stepped in, hiring Don Cheadle to replace the departing actor. He’s probably most famous for his awful attempts at a cockney accent in the Ocean films, but has serious acting credentials having nabbed an Oscar nomination for Hotel Rwanda.
The role is set to be greatly expanded in Iron Man 2, with all the sequel buzz suggesting [possible spoiler ahead] that Rhodes will become War Machine next time around.
Filming on the sequel will get under way next year.
