The only reason I think that it's good he left is because I don't want to him waste his time arguing with the Avenger's obsessed studio. Nothing will come of it. They will win the battles and we (those of us who didn't care for IM2) will be left with another halfbaked sequel and he will get all of the blame for it. Let him move on to other projects before this taints him.
I usually don't say this, but I agree with you on this one.
After Cheadle replaced Howard they rewrote the script to beef up Cheadle's screen time and shoe horn in War Machine which took away from Rourke. Huge mistake.
Hopefully they learn from this, drop War Machine in the third, don't rush or rewrite the script, and give Mandarin plenty of screen time and make him a real threat.
