Re: Anybody else miss Terrence Howard as Rhodey?
Howard was physically bigger than RDJ, hence the impression that he was stronger/ more military type. Other than that, he was bland (too bland for the role). And he had some truly terrible moments, like the "don't bother me untl you have put yourself together" one. THe only scene that was great was him hugging Tony in the desert, and that one was sold mosly by RDJ, not him.
Cheadle is fine. Does not look as "big" as Howard, does not look bad either. Actually, neither movie have managed to flesh Rhodey out, so far. He always comes off as someone who tolerates Tony for the sake of weapons/suits, but I do not see the supposed strong friendship. I have high hopes for IM3, though, looks like they corrected this.
