Re: Don Cheadle joins IRON MAN 2!!!
Just seen the news; much like everyone else's reaction, mine was like 'WTF???!!!'
For the sake of continuity, re-casts to such important characters are hardly ever good; it's normally a fun thing to see an actor evolve a role over the course over a succession of films. Obviously, now we won't get to see that.
It wouldve been nice to see Howard in some armor.
However, I'd be lying If I said that I wasnt enthusiastic about seeing Cheadle's Rhodey alongside RDJ's Tony.
I have a lot of time for Cheadle and he is more of a 'marquee' name.
Don't be ashamed of the source material when making your adaption. EMBRACE it.
