Re: Don Cheadle joins IRON MAN 2!!!
I wasn't big on Howard when he was first cast as Rhodey (I felt he wasn't tough enough). However, his enthusiasm for the role eventually won me over. And honestly, film Rhodey was not the hardass Marine I thought/hoped he would be. Howard fit the profile that the script called for very well.
IMHO, Don Cheadle is a superior actor to Howard, and given the character of Rhodey as defined in IM, I think he can not only nail it, but improve upon it.
But re-casting is never a good sign, imho. This, along with the Favreau and Norton situations, officially has me worried that Marvel has bitten off more than they can chew with this aggressive crossover project and are cutting corners just to rush the product to market.
