seriously, I don't want to be insulting, but where does your line of thinking come from?
First off, I already explained why it would be stupid and suicidal for Marvel to hand off the franchise to Rhodey.
Second, the Avengers movies, Marvel no doubt paid Robert Downey Jr ton and I mean a sh- ton of cash to return for part 2 & 3. You really think they're going to be paying him all that money for him to sit back on the sidelines and NOT be Iron Man? You really think the audience is going to be wanting to watch the movies if RDJ is not in the armor?
If they want diversity, throw in latinos, middle easterners and asians. And not just for superhero roles, but for other roles. The MCU has been the worst by far when it comes to casting actors and actresses that aren't white and black.
